Music For The Masses 2005[edit]

MFTM started in 2005 as a concert to promote the local music scene. The event lasted all day July 23 (which also happened to be the hottest day of the year), with a total of 12 bands playing. There was no admission charge. Despite no admission charge the 2007 concert attendance was low. Concert organizer, Chris Armstrong, stated "I'll probably take a financial hit...." as the concert was taking place.[1]
