Coming in hot and on track for another sell out year, THIS THAT today announces a huge addition of acts to its already heaving lineup at Wickham Park on Saturday 04 November. With exactly two months until gates open, THIS STAGE and THAT STAGE are stacked and additional artists are also revealed for mystical pop-up enclave and third stage, THE OTHER.
New Zealand power-siblings BROODS lead the announcement. They’ve just released absolute dream-hit ‘Peach’ and THIS THAT is their only announced Australian festival appearance so far in 2018 – the perfect opportunity for fans to hear it live for the first time. Also hitting the THIS THAT stage is smooth operatorAllday. Following his collab with Mallrat on ‘UFO’ earlier this year, Allday hinted at new music on facebook earlier this month andis due for a mammoth return later this year.
Boasting a massive array of world-class local talent is THIS THAT’s third stage, THE OTHER. Bringing the beats to THE OTHER are some of Sydney’s best including Jesse Porsches, Ebony Boadu, Barney Cools DJs, Purple Sneakers DJs, SPORTS and Lex Deluxe.
These additions join the already overflowing talent pool including RL Grime playing bangers and cuts from his latest album NOVA, Amy Shark, who is riding an unstoppable wave of success plus SAFIA who have an incredible new live show to debut. Will GoldLink pull out a live version of his latest collab with Silk City and Desiigner? Who will The Rubens get on stage to sign ‘Never Ever’ with them? This day-long-kick-on at Wickham Park is always full of surprises.
The festival makes absolutely no apologies for the best of the best gourmet food trucks from across the State, craft beer concoctions, eloquent cocktails and the finest small batch wines. Living it up isn’t for everyone but it is if you’re all that. ALL THAT VIP tickets are almost sold out with an even larger viewing area right beside the main stage. Exclusive seating, toilets, gourmet eateries and pampering come with the price tag.
Festival organisers also announce today they’ll be following in sister festival Scene & Heard’s footsteps to offer A Farmers Day Out. Designed to assist farmers doing it tough, festival organisers are giving away 50 free tickets to rural Aussies in the wake of the ongoing drought and will also include donation tins at the event gates with all proceeds going to charity, Buy A Bale. Farmers and rural workers can register for the online ballot HERE. Festival Organisers hope A Farmers Day Out will provide a rare opportunity for some local farmers to get some much needed downtime.
Tickets are on sale now HEREand expected to sell out. Eager punters are encouraged to move quick if they want a piece of the action.
