Today see’s the start of the Fat Tuesday Festival celebrations. The festival is a five day Mardi Gras music festival on the south coast. 13-17th February 2015.
320 gigs will be taking place across the town as well as the Umbrella Parade on Sunday, the Mardi Gras ball, a traditional jazz festival and a two day music industry seminar. All of which will be accompanied by countless costumes and colorful Characters.
Most events are free, with several new additions for 2015, and there is something for all ages.
The festival launches this evening with Lucky Friday. Music comes from Dr Savage and The Fat Tuesday 2nd Line, from 8pm at Pissarro’s, South Terrace; 9pm at The General Havelock, Havelock Road; and from 10pm at the Jenny Lind, High Street, where the Cajun Dawgs will also take to the stage.
