March 11, 12 and 13th 2016

After a SOLD OUT event in 2015, this March sees the return of a festival called PANAMA to Tasmania’s Northeast.

 For three nights the glades of the Lone Star Valley will once again transform into stages and nightclubs, speakeasies and food markets.  From around the country and the world a carefully selected line up of rising stars and celebrated cult figures will take to the one and only main stage while smaller venues, set in old canvas tents and tiny candlelit bars, will host sideshows of wild jazz, world class cabarets, intimate acoustic sessions, unforgettable story telling and on-point Djs.

Pitch your tent in the picturesque camping fields set amongst the towering PANAMA Forest. Enjoy Launceston roasted coffee and fresh cooked meals from the best food vans and caterers the island has to offer. Try the small-batch apple cider brewed on site or a range of locally brewed craft beers and select Tasmanian wines. Take part in the great PANAMA clothes swap, meander through the artisan markets or join a morning yoga session lakeside as part of your weekend.

With just 1250 tickets being made available we invite you to join us for a feast of music and performance –  a festival called PANAMA.

 Tickets will go on sale December 1st with attendees to the previous events and mailing list subscribers given first preference to secure themselves a spot.
