Stalwart Tassie festival Party In The Paddock has announced the first act on its 2018 line-up as none other than revered good-time outfit Grouplove.

Leading the charge of artists set to help the festival celebrate its sixth year this coming February as its first-ever official international headliner, Grouplove return to our shores on the heels of last year's third album Big Mess, which made a splash Down Under by cracking the ARIA top 20 on its release in September 2016.

Along with the tunes of that record — which includes the likes of Welcome To Your Life, Do You Love Someone and Good Morning among its ranks — fans will doubtlessly be treated to a dollop of old favourites to guarantee maximum groove levels.

Having already ignited crowds at events such as Coachella, Lollapalooze and Reading & Leeds this year, the band are in prime form to come help ensure that Party In The Paddock well and truly lives up to its name.

The event returns to White Hills, Tasmania (about 20 minutes' drive from Launceston) on Friday 9 and Saturday 10 February.

Keep your eyes peeled for further line-up announcements in the near future, and see the festival's website for more information.
