OVER 30 acts graced the stage at The Loft on Sunday for the eighth final Arockalypse in Liebig Street.
Starting from 11am and finishing at 1pm, the event marks the last ever for the iconic original live music venue.
"I've got mixed emotions right now, I'm happy because of how many people are here, sharing all their stories about how much the place meant to them, but also fighting back tears," The Loft owner Lynny Mast said.
"Numbers have been declining, we just haven't had as many people through the doors.
"There's so many factors that have contributed I think, but I know that there are a lot of little rural venues who are feeling the pressure. In a few years' time people will look back and think, 'Remember that awesome music venue, I wonder what happened to that?'"
Ms Mast and her partner Jed have run the popular venue for the last three years.
Her favourite memory over that time is a Christmas gig that a number of local musicians put together to thank the pair for all the work they put into The Loft.
"Last Christmas a group of the young, upcoming musos put together a concert and did one big jam on-stage together at the end. It was just amazing," she said.
"We've always been focused on helping the next generation of young talent and newcomers get their start."
The Masts plan on continuing the annual Arockalypse tradition.
"We plan to keep Arockalypse going, we don't know where it will be held, but we hope to do it yearly," Ms Mast said.
The 150-capacity venue had sold over 100 tickets to the all-day festival by 5pm on Sunday, and expected to sell out quickly.
It included performances from Dallas Frasca, King of the North, The Pretty Littles, Hidden Intent, Abbe May and The Motorvators to name a few.
