But there’s more to the event than visual art. After all, this is a festival, so music plays an integral part in proceedings. The 2016 event was even named “Bodies & Beats,” leaving attendees in no doubt about the importance of the musical element. In fact, visitors were treated to a diverse line-up of around 50 local and international bands across four different stages as well as DJ sets.
