This That is making sure the third time’s a charm with monster 2017 lineup
Australia is experiencing a renaissance period for festivals right now, and THIS THAT is grabbing that bull by the horns. With a new venue for the festival’s third run, it looks like This That is going to make a hat trick with a lineup that’s as wild as it is explosive.
Fronting the bill is Australia’s EDM queen ALISON WONDERLAND. This firecracker of a producer is also sharing the bill with Canadian legends, ZEDS DEAD. The rest of the lineup is sporting homegrown dance heroes like PACES, POOLCLVB, MOTEZ and TIGERILLA just to name a few.
Beyond electronic music, TASH SULTANA, whose speedy rise to international stardom is nearly unprecedented, will also be gracing Newcastle alongside the grooves of THE PREATURES and the thumping spits of THUNDAMENTALS.
Of course, This That will be showcasing only the best food that Newy has to offer – with a fkn smorgasbord of cuisines and curated cocktails to match. Punters will also be able to wander into The Other, which is promised to be “the ultimate uber chill zone, a tech savvy sensory surrounding space to chill…..or thrill, hosting the countries best up and coming producers.”
Looking to make sure the third time’s the charm, This That will now be held at Wickham Park. Sure, it’s no beachside venue but it’s also much bigger and around the corner from the train station – win/win.
THIS THAT members pre-sale from 9:00am AEST, Thursday August 3. General public on sale is 9am local time Monday August 7.
