The street-style festival billed to bring urban-cool back to Newcastle didn’t disappoint last Saturday, as headliners belted bangers from Wickham Park across the suburbs.
This That returned to Newcastle on November 3 with arguably the biggest line-up in the youth festival’s four-year run despite early controversy when Sticky Fingers cancelled their planned performance amid allegations of abuse and violence in July.
As the festival wrapped up Saturday night, hundreds of music fans crowded onto Albert Street and the Pacific Highway, which had been temporarily closed, toward Beaumont Street.
Police praised the behaviour of festival-goers despite issuing a total of 22 field court attendance notices for possession offences and seven for drug supply.
A total of three people were transported to hospital, two for drug related illnesses.
