Support us

Hastings Fat Tuesday CIC is a not for profit organisation.

We would like to thank all those who generously donated towards the fundraising campaign for the 2024 festival. Your sponsorship enables HFT to support and develop opportunities for local artists, grassroots music venues, the cultural economy and the community of Hastings and St Leonards.

HFT delivers an ambitious programme of live music performance, creative music-making opportunities, and music industry skills development. This includes Sonics, Hastings Fat Tuesday Music Festival, Fat Tuesday Club, Under the Radar and Voodoo Fest alongside additional community and education projects.
