The festival had something for everyone: food, drinks, musical performances, sales of items such as clothing, jewelry and headscarves, pop-up art exhibitions, new sculptures and murals, street culture, dancing, and above all the opportunity to meet each other.

Participants in the art-related activities include: Gwen Anderson, Carlos Better, Carlos Blaaker, Monique Harbers, Hilma Koelman, Viangelo Lomp, Michelle Mesker, Pito Polo, Marcel Truyens, Carlo Wallé, and Quirine Guato & friends in Gallery 7.
