4. The People

At Art Outside, you are bound to meet some of the most passionate art and music lovers. Because of the festival’s deliberate no-frill, pure-arts policy, only the more serious and dedicated visitors throng to the event. Which also means that the festival doesn’t attract those who just want to be ‘seen’ there, in turn, helping maintain a close-knit community. The fact that it is an affordable festival only adds to its charm.
