Slowly but surely festivals and events are coming back to Tasmania, and 2021 will see A Festival Called Panama return.

Other acts featured in the first weekend line up are Maddy Jane, Meres, Xenos, Arauco Libre, and The McEntee Ottaway Big Band.
The second weekend will also see Maddy Jane, Xenos, Arauco Libre and The McEntee Ottaway Big Band return, with other acts including Kat Edwards and Ajak Kwai.
