Start planning that festival outfit and get the car serviced for a road trip. After debuting to a SOLD OUT crowd in 2015, THIS THAT is back for a second bite of Newcastle’s cherry, returning to the City’s Foreshore on Saturday November 5.
THIS THAT proved itself to be the cool, refreshing drink of water the people of Newcastle had been desperately craving in its first year. With a 12,000 strong sold out crowd and a lineup led by Rufus, Sticky Fingers & Birds of Tokyo, it was nothing short of a kaleidoscopic gathering of the creme de la creme. Focussing largely on local talent, truly housing something for every taste – from much-hyped international trap and bass lord Baauer to the charming effervescence of The Jungle Giants.
Supported by triple j, this years’ triumphant return promises to quench that festival thirst once more with the 2016 lineup announcement coming on Tuesday August 2. Can’t wait? Get news and presale info before the masses by signing up to the THIS THAT mailing list here.
