It's the beginning of the end.
On Thursday, the final ever Party in the Paddock got underway.
Festival organiser Jesse Higgs said the packed pre-party started the festival off right.
"It's awesome to have a big female headliner like Jack River," he said.
"She has such a great catalogue and a legion of fans and I think there was a lot of Tassie folks really keen to see Jack in that slot.
"Going off last year, Luca Brasi had that same slot and it's always a really strong crowd. We crammed like 3500 people into Vibestown. It's a nice, tight little area so there's a great atmosphere there."
He said another highlight was Sunshine Coast punk rockers The Chats, who drew a massive crowd.
"They're hilarious, they're a great Australian rock and roll band with songs like Smoko and whatnot, so that was rocking as well," he said.
"We also had punk bands like Dear Seattle, and then we've also got Odette who's a just beautiful songstress.
"It was a really stackable lineup for a Thursday."
Mr Higgs said Thursday's pre-party had sold out, with the Vibestown population verging on 4000 people.

He said with a combination of great vibes and great weather, it reminded him of some of their earlier festivals.
"It was reminiscent of some of the first Party in the Paddock's, and that the whole idea of Vibestown," he said.
"It was just a great atmosphere."
Party in the Paddock will continue on Friday, with massive acts such as Lime Cordiale, Mallrat, Dune Rats, and Cosmo's Midnight set to take to the Paddock Stage.
As of Thursday evening, two-day tickets and single-day tickets for Friday and Saturday at the White Hills festival were still available.
