The show was fairly attended a lot of farmers encouraged artists to be innovative in embracing the plastic money methods since they is a serious cash crises.
"These musicians should embrace the plastic money methods our money is in bank cards and Eco cash but you find them demanding hard currency there by turning us away," explained a farmer.
