The support act for the evening will be Hastings’ Kid Kapichi, who has just finished a UK tour supporting Frank Carter and The Rattlesnakes.

Fat Tuesday organiser Adam Daly is thrilled to have Baxter involved. He said: “The festival has been growing every year over the past decade, and this year we decided to open it with a major artist performing at the biggest venue in town.”

Baxter, who aims to release his new album Night Chancers in March, decided to include Hastings as part of his 2020 European tour after hearing about Hastings Fat Tuesday from his sister Jemima, a Hastings resident.

He said: “I think Hastings is a brilliant place and I’ve always meant to make it down for Fat Tuesday so I’m very happy to be playing!”
