Music, comedy and beer at a one-day bank holiday festival near London Fields

How to make the most of your Bank Holiday Sunday? You could do a lot worse than head down to the London Fields Brewery arches, the site of this fundraising festival for the Macmillan cancer support charity. Now in its second year, Hear No Evil this year includes live appearances by Kieran Leonard & The Horses, Mull Historical Society (Colin MacIntyre solo), Feldspar and Leisure. There's also comedy and other fun stuff, as well as craft beer literally on tap.

Not great to be honest, although all for a good cause.
Said on the tin that it was a music, comedy and beer festival. 
There wasn't anything on (except beer tasting) until late in the afternoon despite the doors opening at 1pm. The beer tasting seemed to consist of jugs of beer on tables. I guess I was at least expecting labels and taste cards or something. 
Whilst we're on the topic of beer, having just 4 beers on tap was pretty disappointing.
There wasn't much comedy, some of it was ok but they did very short sets and the turn around between acts was waaay too long (this goes for the music too). Needs to be snappy at small events like this.
There was also a particularly grumpy dude behind the bar who did a great job of buzz killing when you went to order drinks.
We had a good time to be fair but the organisation felt a bit half arsed.
