Party In The Paddock returns for its 12th annual pilgrimage after the epic 2024 edition, and rest assured, it's here to stay.

In the wake of ongoing uncertainty surrounding music and arts festivals in Australia amidst the ‘cost of living crisis’, Vibestown Productions announce that its iconic event, Party In The Paddock, will be going full steam ahead, held as scheduled on February 6-9, 2025.

With a commitment to providing Tasmania and the rest of Australia the magic of an immersive, multi-day camping music and arts festival – when few in the country remain.

The four day and night experience for festival-goers is an integral part of festival culture and the team behind Party In the Paddock are working hard to ensure the event’s continuity despite the obstacles faced by the entertainment industry.

The decision to proceed with Party In The Paddock in 2025 underscores the dedication to fostering a vibrant festival culture in Tasmania, Australia. “We recognise the importance of these events as not only avenues for entertainment but also vital platforms for community engagement, artistic expression, and economic support for local businesses and artists.” Festival Director Jesse Higgs continues, “It’s the most important time in our history, after running this event as a locally owned and operated business for the last twelve years, that we receive more support from the state government. We’re currently working towards more funding for PITP and this will be vital for our future as Tasmania’s leading Music & Arts festival.

It’s additionally important for us to say that we have so much gratitude towards our ‘Paddock’ people that return most years – this year especially, it’s really important that everyone makes the effort to support local events.

In this next chapter, we’re here to make PITP as synonymous with Tassie as ‘The Jack Jumpers’ or the coming ‘Tassie Devils’ AFL team. We believe that Music and Art are and should be valued just as much as sports. Tassie, this event is for you, let’s lock in another decade.”

This year, the festival is opening up a limited amount of Early Bird Tickets to coincide with current events, giving patrons the opportunity to support, lock in early and get their PITP 2025 tickets at the lowest cost. With additional incentives on offer, such as an application process for Hardship Tickets and Zipay instalments where costs can be spread out starting at a minimum of $10 per week.
