After the monumental success of its 2024 edition, Party In The Paddock makes its triumphant return for its 12th annual gathering, solidifying its place as a staple event for years to come!

As uncertainty looms over the future of music and arts festivals in Australia amidst the prevailing ‘cost of living crisis’, Vibestown Productions delivers a beacon of hope with the confirmation of Party In The Paddock’s return. Set to unfold as planned from February 6th to 9th, 2025, the iconic event remains unwavering in its commitment to delivering an unforgettable experience. In a landscape where such immersive, multi-day camping festivals are becoming increasingly rare, Party In The Paddock stands as a testament to resilience and dedication. Despite the challenges confronting the entertainment industry, the festival’s organizers are steadfast in their resolve to preserve this integral aspect of festival culture, ensuring that the magic of Party In The Paddock continues to captivate Tasmania and beyond.

“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.”

For the upcoming edition, Party In The Paddock introduces a special opportunity for festival-goers to secure their spot with Early Bird Tickets, aligning with the current landscape of events. These limited tickets not only offer attendees the chance to show their support early on but also ensure access to PITP 2025 at the most affordable rates. To further enhance accessibility, the festival presents various incentives, including an application process for Hardship Tickets, catering to those facing financial constraints. Additionally, with the introduction of Zipay instalments, attendees can spread out their costs, starting from as little as $10 per week, making the festival experience more attainable for all.


 6th – 9th 2025 February
Quercus Park, 15 minutes from Launceston, Tasmania.
