We save the very best for last. Roam the grounds and museum. Come and go. Eat and drink. Listen to music new and newer and newest. Challenge your ears and fill your brain with bold ideas. Hang with old friends and meet some new ones. If this isn't an optimistic mini-festival and world-view, then we don't know what is!

The program has been finalized, and it looks like this:
