In addition to the main stage of live music, PTTP also featured morning yoga, an open-air art gallery, a healing arts tent, a DJ tent, vendors and food booths, an eco village, kid's zone, bike parking by the SF Bicycle Coalition, and social, environmental and political organizations tabling and forums. A second stage was been added for this year. The festival began at 9am with morning yoga, and lasted until 5pm. Artists on the stages included Blackalicious, Los Mocosos, and T-K.a.s.h. imc_audio.gif Audio of Blackalicious | imc_photo.gif Photos: 1 | 2 | imc_article.gif Report An afterparty Saturday night was to benefit PTTP.
