The event was previously a one-day affair but due to popular demand it has been extended to two days. "As a result of demand from festival goers and loyalists who wanted to stay on while enjoying our east coast beaches in East London, the organisers decided to extend the event with one day,"says Aphiwe Bukani, the event publicist.

He adds that the initial idea of the festival was to unearth raw talent of the Eastern Cape and create a platform where they will network with national artists without having to leave the province but the event has since attracted national artists. Gates open at 12pm.
