If you've never been to Tasmania, Party In The Paddock (PITP) have given you every reason to rectify that with a 2024 line-up rich in international talent and crammed to overflowing with incredible Australian artists.Set to land at Quercus Park (just 25 minutes from Launceston) on 8-11 February, PITP will be welcoming a number of international arrivals led by drum and bass giants Rudimental (who have released three collabs in 2023: 'Dancing Is Healing feat. Charlotte Plank and Vibe Chemistry', 'Die Young feat. Venbee', and 'Thunderstorm with Clipz feat. Deyaz'), and German indie duo Milky Chance (whose new album 'Living In Haze' landed earlier this year featuring the title single as well as 'Colorado' and 'Synchronize' bangers).
Veteran glam rockers The Darkness, NYC indie pop act The Drums, American indie hip hop artist K.Flay, British DJ Chris Lorenzo (a veteran of Bonnaroo and Rock in Rio) and TikTok personality and indie emo-rocker Petey will also venture to PITP in '24.
After staging their return event earlier this year, in 2024 PITP will expand to include a Thursday evening pre-party (to be headlined by San Cisco, who were forced to twice cancel their Party In The Apocalypse appearances due to COVID).
"We are playing Party In The Paddock and the line-up is lit. I promised we wouldn't forget about you Tasmania," San Cisco says.
On the home front indie-pop sensations Lime Cordiale ('Temper Temper', 'Robbery' and 'Waking Up Easy' and G Flip (nominated for six ARIA Awards who also scored Australian Album of the Year at the 2023 J Awards) lead the way.
"Now that's a pretty hectic line-up! Tasmania gets the goods!" shares Lime Cordiale.
They'll be joined by Ball Park Music, Holy Holy, The Vanns, Jack River, Teenage Dads, The Smith Street Band, Royel Otis, The Grogans, Kim Churchill, The Rions, The Buoys, Barkaa and South Summit.
With 150 artists scheduled to play, PITP will keep the beats rockin' till the wee early hours each night with some of the electronic artists booked to play including Anna Lunoe, CC: Disco!, Memphis LK, Big Wett, Forest Claudette, Jacotene, Little Fritter and Wongo.
"Just wanted to highlight how exceptional this line-up is," shares Ball Park Music. While The Vanns add: "Tassie! We promised you we were coming back soon. . . Stoked to be playing one of our favourite Aussie festivals again. See you in February 2024."
With an ace or two still left up their sleeve for a second artist announcement, Party In The Paddock is shaping up to be one music festival you don't want to hit the snooze button.
"'The Paddock' is all for the love. . . of music, art, community, colour, culture, country and connection – returning to our new home at Quercus Park lutruwita/Tasmania," shares event organisers.
"For our 11th year and for the first time in our history, PITP will be a massive 4 days/ nights with a record breaking 150 artists/ performances.
"Scattered across five stages, this unprecedented amount of music, immersive art and PITP magic will be the festival's biggest occasion to date and we cannot wait to see your faces!"
