THOUSANDS DESCEND ON NEWCASTLE FOR MUSIC FESTIVAL

More than 13,000 revellers have descended on Newcastle Foreshore for today’s ‘This That’ music festival.

The sold-out event features a range of Australian and overseas acts, but organisers say there’s also a lot of local attributes on show.

“Really honing in on the cultural and the things that made the identity of this place. It was food, drink, activities, the arts and all those things so we brought all those things together”, says organiser, Justin Nyker.
