It was one crazy weekend. Even with the inclement weather, people lined up for Dutdutan 2016. Personally, it felt like spending a regular weekend and having a drink at a friends place except multiplied a thousand times. It was like the world saying, “there are many crazy people out there as you guys.” Which was both surprising and comforting.
See you soon then at Dutdutan 2017.
