Hailed as Hastings’ answer to SXSW in Texas, or Brighton’s The Great Escape, Hastings Fat Tuesday is the UK’s largest Mardi Gras celebration and has its own distinctive flavour.
We are now open to applications from solo artists and bands from both Sussex and beyond, to perform at two of the key events, which between them regularly attract audiences well into the thousands:
Applications should be made online by the deadline of 1 December. Applicants will be asked to provide a bio, information about recent gigs, and links to their music.
We are now also inviting applications from those interested in managing one of the 16 stages as part of the Fat Tuesday tour on 5 March 2019. Applicants must be over 18 and available 6-11pm on Tuesday 5 March.
If you would like to support the event by volunteering, please apply now! You will have the opportunity to see and hear a wide range of top quality music across the five days. Tasks may include: gathering audience feedback, staffing the information desk, handing out flyers, and stewarding at events. Volunteers must be 18 or over by 1 March 2019.
