Is it Faile and Swoon in attendance, or their work only?

Will there be prints for sale?

There will be a fair bit of art up for grabs but what exactly is the question,,, If the weather is like it has been lately it will be a very nice day indeed, and as a added bonus the ferry that goes to the island is about half a spliff,s walk away.. :ziggi:
There was a article in the Sydney Morning Herald today but its a bit vague and there is no Faile or such like thats for sure, here should give you abit of a better idea, big deal for little old Sydney town.. :ziggi: http://outpost.cockatooisland.gov.au/
there is supposed to be a few surprises as well but down here that could mean a ballon and a corporate sponsored coffee cup holder.... :pint:

It seems there will be a few Faile OG,s for veiwing so that in itself makes the boat ride the sun and the refreshing smell of clean salt water that little bit more bearable.... :ziggi: http://www.au.timeout.com/sydney/art/ev ... -by-banksy

I went to this today, its awesome. So much stuff! Not heaps to buy there, well there was a bit of art but it was far to pricey for me and some cool t-shirts. This is the first weekend so there is stacks more to come. Took heaps of photos on my way through here is the link if anyone wants to check it out. http://www.flickr.com/photos/39427811@N ... 939133611/
