HFT 2014

28th February to 4th March 2014

The unique Hastings Fat Tuesday Festival was back for another year…

Over five days Hastings and St Leonard’s played host to Britain’s fastest growing music and arts festival.Throughout the festival there were 20 venues, with 50 acts performing an impressive total of 220 gigs. On the Saturday you could enjoy a spot of lunch at one of the 15 participating bars and restaurants in Hastings Old Town for the Unplugged Tour between 1pm and 6pm, a fantastic afternoon filled with live music…175 gigs performed by 35 acts took place in just one afternoon, bringing together a wide variety of food and music with a few surprises along the way. Follow the bands around or just pick your favourite spot and let the music come to you. Fat Tuesday (4th March) was the main event – a night of fancy dress, fabulous feathers, beads, masks and music! 15 venues, 30 acts and over 36 hours of live music in one evening. Last year Skunk Anansie performed as a secret special guest and this year’s event featured a headline performance from The Ruts.
