Party in Paddock top spot to rock

TWO NIGHTS of musical mayhem saw sunburned audiences soak up tunes from some of Australia's best up-and-coming musical acts at Blessington's Party in the Paddock.

The sophomore event, featuring performances from Kingswood, Stonefield, Younger Dryas and more, was held in memory of Launceston's Chris Horrocks, who died suddenly in Laos last year.

About 1000 people, armed with tents, deck chairs and a plethora of novelty items, filled the Blessington Road paddock with activity throughout the weekend.

The largely volunteer-run event saw good behaviour from the crowd.

Favourite tunes, theme songs and jingles were adapted into unique renditions by Brisbane's The Lyrical on Saturday, topped only by an exceptional set from Sydney's Sticky Fingers later that night.

Launceston's Joseph Joseph, Guthrie, The Embers and Heloise were just some of the Northern talent to entertain the masses.

A healthy representation of Southern talent was also present as The Christopher Coleman Collective, Jed Appleton, The Lawless Quartet showed their own breed of musical prowess.
