Hastings Fat Tuesday fever hits

Fat Tuesday is a Hastings cornerstone. We couldn’t let East Sussex’s own Mardi Gras pass without recognising its importance to our local community.

Hastings Fat Tuesday CIC is a not for profit organisation. As such local community support is essential for Hastings Fat Tuesday to support and develop opportunities for local artists, grassroots music venues, the cultural economy and the community of Hastings and St Leonards.

Music is a vital aspect of that and as such there are over 350 free performances in the five day long festival with acclaimed artists from across the South-East appearing alongside a wealth of local bands.

So we thought what better way to celebrate being a Hastings-based business in the run up to Hastings biggest music event than ask the team to share their current playlists and Fat Tuesday gig recommendations.


Rod’s a bit of an old rocker really…

My playlist is quite eclectic really but as Goldstar are a data-driven business let’s look at my most played albums…

  1. Pearl Jam – Ten
  2. Clutch – Book of Bad Decisions
  3. Rival Sons – Great Western Valkyrie

And my pick for Fat Tuesday performances has to be Frank from Blue Velvet – check them out at Albion, 33 George St, Hastings, Saturday @ 1530

Paul’s all in with some disco and house

My tunes of choice for concentration and getting into the zone has got to be something like Purple Disco Machine. Their set at Tomorrowland 2022 was great, this is high up my YouTube playlist!

But for Fat Tuesday I’ll be going with Plunk at The Jenny Lind on The High Street, Hastings on Tuesday at 8!


Some serious dub and reggae for Aminah

I’ll be heading down to the East Hastings Sea Angling Association on Tuesday, 21st for their 4th Annual Reggae Room Party!
Hosted by MIGHTY SOUNDS and the DUB GENERALS from 8 pm, at The Stade, Rock-a-Nore Rd, Hastings.

Ingrid likes a different take on the ‘classics’

I’ll have something like Easy All Stars’ Dubber Side of the Moon on in the background…


More relaxed acoustic music for David

While working I love listening to a familiar track but as an acoustic cover. Something like this Spotify playlist.

Fat Tuesday is going to be more acoustic for me with King Size Slim on Unplugged Saturday 18th February @ The Crown, 64-66 All Saints’ Street, Hastings.

Bret pays ‘Tribute’ to some Reggae

I heard this today, its not the greatest song in the world…

For Fat Tuesday, I’ll be joining Aminah at the Reggae Room Party at East Hastings Sea Angling Association on Tuesday, to catch Cheshire Cat and Mad-X!


Vicki loves some indie… and a bit of rock

Off the top of my head I’d go with;

  1. Pink Floyd – Dark Side of the Moon
  2. Coldplay – Rush of Blood to the Head
  3. U2 – The Joshua Tree

I think I’ll stick with some indie for Fat Tuesday and see Anna Page at Heist, at 22-26 Norman Road, St Leonards-on-Sea on Saturday.

Being Hastings-based and deep in the community we are looking forward to getting involved and having some fun over the Fat Tuesday weekend! As Sussex Zoho Consultants and Digital Transformation experts we work with local businesses who share the same drive and focus as the team at Hastings Fat Tuesday.

If you’d like to support Hastings Fat Tuesday make sure you head over and grab your tickets today! 
Hopefully see you at one of the gigs!
