Lime Cordiale, Dune Rats headline Tassie’s Party In The Apocalypse festival

Party In The Paddock

Tasmania's brand new Party In The Apocalypse festival is bringing a huge Aussie lineup to Launceston from December 3-4 this year.

Party In The Apocalypse is the new COVIDSafe brainchild of Vibestown, the team behind the much-loved Party In The Paddock (PITP) festival, which will provide a thumping, cathartic end to a maniacal year.

They certainly know how to throw a party in tough conditions (you can read our review of their last bash here) but despite the foreboding name, Party In The Apocalypse is set to be full-throttle celebration.

Kicking off the first weekend of summer, this two day, non-camping music & arts festival will take place at Churchill Park in Launceston, and bring some of the country’s best live acts to the state for one of the biggest lineups to hit Tassie since COVID began.
