Save the date for Hastings Fat Tuesday Music Festival 2023

Friday 17th – Tuesday 21st February

We can now reveal the live line up for Le Grand Mardi Gras Ball 2023 on Friday 17th February at White Rock Theatre.

The Lord works in mysterious ways. Or so the saying goes, but there is nothing mysterious about the rise of the fabulously original entertainment phenomenon that is – Oh My God! It’s The Church- our headliners for 2023.In a world which increasingly feels like it’s falling apart and rife with division, Oh My God! It’s The Church are the medicine your soul has been craving. Fronted by insane Pastor The Right Reverend Michael Alabama Jackson, he and his wild collective combine to create a fresh live act which has taken the UK by storm. Welcome to a new musical religion for the 21st Century, one which brings the masses together, and baptises them in Absinthe.

Opening the night are all time HFT favourites Mr Wilson’s Second Liners who return to kick off the weekend’s festivities. A rabble of mischievous northerners, Mr Wilson’s Second Liners form a traditional New Orleans Second Line. However, this is no sombre occasion: Mr Wilson’s expend their collective musical talent paying homage to the diehard days of the Hacienda and 90s club culture.

Dance into the small hours with Mixfits DJs (featuring Lemur Beats), a local female DJ collective: Kim Cosmik, Em & Tain Joliffe, Jenny Leaman and Lesley Model, all bringing a wealth of experience and knowledge to form Hastings’ foremost female DJ collective. . Expect the eclectic, from disco to house to techno to pop to Italo to Afro-funk- all expertly selected by the gang, cause the mix always fits…

Early Bird tickets are now on sale £22.50 instead of £27 – go grab ‘em whilst you can. #hft2023
