With just under a month until one of the country’s leading festival moments kicks off once again, This That is well on track for another massive year!
Today organisers reveal the where and when of the fest with the set times and final artist line up locked and loaded.
Each stage has been carefully curated to offer something different with Golden Features, Peking Duk, Meg Mac, Hermitude, Northeast Party House and heaps more making an appearance.
Pumping all day and night, centerpiece This Stage hits hard with a huge open-air zone, climaxing with pyrotechnics and perspiration. That Stage is an undercover boiler room meant for serious ravers only, playing host to some of the best party bands and electronic producers around including international talent NGHTMRE and Jai Wolf.
Also announced today rising pop artist BOI is the triple j Unearthed winner, hand-picked by the team at triple j and triple j Unearthed to open This Stage proceedings.
Pushing sensory boundaries even further in 2019, third stage The Other is bigger than ever and now undercover. Previously open-air and featuring DJs only, this year it conjures some of the best emerging talents with live sets in full band mode for the very first time.
The Other isn’t just a bigger stage though, it’s expanding in 2019 to be much, much more. This is another world entirely. It’s a mystical enclave to get lost in fancy dress, learn a magic trick, meet a unicorn, discover a secret club, get a hug from a dominatrix or be covered in glitter. Showcasing some of Newcastle’s most thrilling artistic delights it’s a visual and tactile wormhole worth getting sucked into.
There’s no denying that this year’s This That is going to be a visual, aural and dare we say emotional extravaganza but you’d better get in quick because there re less than 100 All That VIP tix left and the whole shindig is apparently 90% full already!
