    i love this festival, it’s like a nice picnicy beach sports fair in the afternoon; but please o, organisers, tell us truthfully if the grand finale is an overnight show or an evening show so we can plan.

      We are glad you love it. it is an evening affair and will be done by 2am. Last year was a learning curve and won’t happen again,
