The annual Party in the Paddock Festival in lutruwita/Tasmania has announced the most extraordinary line up for 2024 – and this is just the first round.

For the first time in PITP’s history, the festival is expanding to four days – kicking off with a Thursday Night Pre-Party on the 8th of February.
The festival takes place in Quercus Park which is 25 minutes from Launceston – located in ‘the heart’ of Tasmania, it is an easily accessible location from Hobart and Devonport on tilapangka/Liffey River, in lutruwita/Tasmania, Palawa/Tasmanian Aboriginal land.
