Stakeholders and organisers have welcomed the news of Vibestown launching a new summer festival in the state.
On Thursday, the team who brought Tasmania Party In The Paddock and The Basin Concert announced they would be holding Party In The Apocalypse on the first weekend of summer - December 3 and 4.
Events Minister Sarah Courtney said the decision to run PITA was exciting for Launceston and Tasmania.
"Festivals are important from both a community and economic perspective and we look forward to seeing more events appearing back on our calendar," she said.
Vibestown artistic director Jesse Higgs said the team was always looking to bring the best events they could to Tasmania.
"It's important to have something that reflects the times we are in," he said.
"We are living in some really crazy times at the moment and if you look at things on a global scale, it could be seen as quite apocalyptic."
Mr Higgs said the festival would be environmentally sustainable and would generate good conversations about social change.
The vibe of the festival will tap into "post-apocalyptic fun" while celebrating music that is triple j orientated.
Though the line-up is yet to be announced, Mr Higgs said festival-goers could expect some of the great bands the team had brought to the state previously.
"We are feeling confident that we should be able to pull a great line-up together regardless of [the pandemic]," he said.
The festival will have to abide by COVID-19 event restrictions including mask-wearing and limits on people dancing.
"It's great to see events going ahead and it demonstrates that organisers can make events work while complying with COVID safe protocols," Ms Courtney said.
"Event organisers will make their own decisions in respect to the viability of festivals after considering a number of factors including border restrictions and required COVID protocols."
The new festival is just part one of what the team has planned for the summer, with more to be announced.
Visit Northern Tasmania chief executive Chris Griffin said having a festival at the start of summer was a great invitation for visitors to travel responsibly to the state.
"We will certainly be looking for any opportunity to invite visitors back to the state [once vaccination targets are met]," he said.
The festival line-up will be announced soon, with presale tickets available to subscribers before general sale tickets are released. Visit vibestown.com.au for more.
