The north’s biggest music festival is back again for 2019, announcing a stellar lineup.
The three-day festival Party in the Paddock will again be held just 20 minutes from Launceston at White Hills.
For the festival’s seventh rotation, going down over three days from February 7 until 9, the Vibestown crew have invited some of their biggest names to date.
Spend your Paddock days belting out DIY-pop classics from British legend Lily Allen, getting down to some serious bangers with The Presets and Riton & Kahlo, or basking in The Jungle Giants and Vera Blue’s radiant indie anthems.
There’ll also be mammoth sets from Tassie faves Luca Brasi and UK rocker Yungblud or take in some seriously smooth verses from Remi, Kwame and Winston Surfshirt.
Those keen to kickstart their weekend early can join in on the Paddock’s full-power Thursday night festivities.
Alongside epic sets from Luca Brasi, Middle Kids, G Flip, Slowly Slowly & Maddy Jane, you’ll also beat the Friday rush and score first dibs on the most picturesque camping spots.
Party in the Paddock will be bolstering up their arts program with a collection of crazy, cool and totally random projects set to unfold over the weekend.
The notorious Vibestown area will return with hilarious comedic sets from a host of funny people including Matt Okine and Gen Fricker.
The mini-ramp will be back, plus there’s yoga, market stalls, and of course, some delicious Tassie tucker to fuel up on.
Tickets will be on sale from October 16.
What’s new for 2019?
Party in the Paddock will be releasing single day and multi-day tickets alongside its two and three night camping tickets.
Shuttle buses will be departing to and from Launceston so your transport is sorted.
