Bitter & Twisted is a celebration of music, food and beer

Join us for a un-BEER-lievable time with headliners Architecture in Helsinki, The Delta Riggs and over 80 craft beers! There’s no better way to spend a day with your mates than celebrating good music, the best brews and delicious street food on the grounds of a former maximum security prison, Maitland Gaol. If that doesn’t convince you to buy a ticket, then read on below.


With over 80 craft beers on offer, you’re guaranteed to find a new favourite brew. Ales, IPA’s, porters, stouts and specialty beers, there’s a drop to suit every taste.


Don’t miss this years massive line up with indie pop group Architecture in Helsinki headlining Sunday and alternate rockers The Delta Riggs on Saturday.


Food, glorious food! With the best prison food around from German sausages to a Mexican fiesta and everything in between, you won’t go home hungry.


Tickets for Bitter & Twisted are now on sale. Saturday is SOLD OUT but you can still purchase tickets for Sunday. Don’t miss out, get yours now.
