Get prepped for the 'second hand formal'... whatever that means

Pigsty In July is making a return this year to the luscious Hunter Valley region on 2 July. 

Those attending Pigsty's sister festival The Gum Ball in April will get a festival exclusive, with the line-up and pre-sale tickets being released at the merch tent on The Gum Ball's opening day on 22 April. 
Held in the heart of winter, the boutique festival known for its array of dining, live music and outlandishly dressed punters is anticipating its biggest year yet. This year's festival boasts the 'second hand formal' theme. 
After three sold-out years, festival coordinator, Magpie Johnson, can't contain his excitement, explaining, "This year we’ll be changing things up a little, slightly bigger stages, more food, more beer, more wine, more bands, and somehow… more fun."
