Despite a a sudden downpour, Party in the Paddock punters didn’t let the rain dampen their spirits on the festival’s third and final day.
Festival organiser Jesse Higgs said Saturday was the biggest day of the festival.
“We like to program Saturday so it goes off like a rocket,” he said.
He said he was still surprised at securing Lily Allen on the festival’s line-up.
“Lily Allen, who would have thought it? Not me,” he said.
“It was a big surprise when Lily came forward and was like, ‘I’d love to come play in Tasmania’.”
Allen released her latest album, No Shame, in June 2018.
However, she’s most well-known for massive hits such as Smile, Not Fair, and The Fear.
“We were super excited to have Vera Blue, our Australian pop princess at the moment, playing just before Lily Allen, London’s pop princess,” Mr Higgs said.
“To see those two go back to back like that was pretty phenomenal.”
A multitude of other acts also entertained punters on the night.
Mr Higgs said English alternative-rock musician Yungblud put on an energetic performance.
“He’s like Justin Bieber crossed with Mick Jagger crossed with Jamie T,” he said.
“He’s a phenomenal young talent. He’s an amazing live act.”
During his set a couple got engaged on stage to hit song, I Love You, Will You Marry Me.
Another “amazing” set was put on by Brisbane trio DZ Deathrays.
“DZ Deathrays are an Australian punk-rock classic,” he said. “They … lit the stage on fire.”
Riton and Kah-Lo also proved popular.
“They’ve got a song out called Fake ID. Massive with the kids,” Mr Higgs said.
English electronic music producer Riton and Nigerian singer-songwriter Kah-Lo have also collaborated on big dance hits such as Rinse and Repeat, Betta Riddim, and Ginger.
“When I was at Splendour [in the Grass], I felt like I was a 17-year-old kid jumping around watching those guys,” Mr Higgs said.
“They were phenomenal, they really took it up a notch.”
Unfortunately, popular Melbourne artist and producer Alice Ivy had to cancel her 3.35pm set.
She told the crowd gathered at the Paddock Stage that the sudden thunderstorm that hit the site had damaged her equipment, rendering her unable to perform her set.
However, she said tour dates would soon be announced for Tasmania, and she would organise tickets for PITP punters who missed out on her set on Saturday.
Tasmania Police said as of 8pm on Saturday, crowds were well-behaved with no incidents reported.
