All good things must come to an end and Party in the Paddock organisers have announced the 2020 event will be the last one.
Northern Tasmania's much-loved music festival is set to bring back a bunch of friends from past events to make the grand finale the biggest yet.
Party in the Paddock director Jesse Higgs said the team kept outdoing themselves, and this was the only way they could build on last year's event.
"The paddock was like an off-road university course for event management and this is our graduation year," he said.
Tickets to the 2020 event are already selling fast, with just a few thousand left.
However, event organisers said the fences would be "snipped" to make room for every single person who's ever been to a PITP.
The festival started when a group of friends decided to put on a proper music festival, and pulled it off. They invited their mates, and their mates invited mates until it grew into what it is today, organisers said.
They have overcome closure threats from the council, losing best friends on the eve of the first official event in 2013 and built PITP into a platform to support positive mental health.
Vibestown production team said it had been a hard decision to call it a day.

"We want the most special project of our lives to go out on top. We believe PITP is at the top of its game and only the good die young," they said.
For nine years straight, PITP has been a go-to event. Despite expanding capacity every year, the festival has sold out for the past five.
Organisers said the event has gained a colossal reputation for punching above its weight, by booking the country's biggest bands, and international headliners such as Lily Allen. The festival will be held from February 6 until 9 at White Hills.
Vibestown Productions will continue and have promised plans.
