Hailed as Hastings’ answer to SXSW in Texas, or Brighton’s Great Escape festival, Hastings Fat Tuesday is one of the jewels in the town’s cultural crown, and the UK’s largest Mardi Gras celebration. Each year the festival welcomes a wealth of local, national and international music talent and music fans alike. In New Orleans and Rio they call it Mardi Gras, in Venice Carnivale and Hastings has Fat Tuesday inspired by the New Orleans tradition.
