The Mini Festival will include barbecue and other food available, there is a bar from which to refresh or caffeinate yourself, and lots of people interested in or curious about new music and sound art. Tilde will also be demonstrating their new music and sound art roving gallery on the day, another opportunity to engage with the work going on here in Australia.
