Bio

The explosive on-stage energy of Fat Picnic has audiences jumping and double-handed sky punching through a plethora of roots music genres. Their unique sound emphasises soulful pop sensibilities, pumping ska sequences and raw hard hitting dub-reggae earthquakes. Fat Picnic have cemented themselves as a go-to festival band

Fat Picnic’s highlights include Woodford Folk Festival (2019/20), Splendour in the grass (2017), Caloundra Music Festival (2016,2017) and Island Vibe Festival (2016,2019).

“I think this Fat Picnic song epitomises what people love about roots music...It’s also a little reminiscent of early Cat Empire.” (Nkechi Anele, Triple J) [About single ‘Best Of You’]

"We think it sounds like The Cat Empire, Sublime and Katchafire had a lovechild" Electric Lemonade review of 'Get Out Of My Fridge'

This makes me long for summer so bad! Peachy, clean sound, and love those licks of brass.
