​triple j, Double J celebrate Aus music during November

triple j, Double J and triple j Unearthed go full Aussie in November as part of their Ausmusic Month, a month-long celebration of Australian music.
This year there will be more live music than ever before, putting the spotlight on emerging acts as well as artists who have been championed by the ABC from the start of their career.
Included this year, Missy Higgins & Friends Live, an intimate show in the Melba Spiegeltent in Melbourne. 
Joining her for some collaborations and covers are her closest friends and family, including Peter Garrett, Kasey Chambers, Dan Sultan, Gretta Ray, Ben Abraham and David Higgins.
Hosted by Double J Mornings presenter and ABC Music Correspondent Zan Rowe, the 90min performance be aired across ABC, iview and Double J from 8.40pm Sun 25 Nov.
Excited to take to the stage for Ausmusic Month, Missy Higgins says “This show is going to be so fun, I’ve always wanted to play in the Melba Spiegeltent and to have such incredible guests joining me on stage just tops it off. My career all started because of winning triple j Unearthed way back in 2001 so to be invited by the ABC to headline their Ausmusic Month celebration feels like a pretty cool ‘coming full circle’ moment. It’s going to be very special.” 
Live music is back on tv with The Set, hosted by triple j’s Dylan Alcott and Linda Marigliano, and featuring some of Australia’s most exciting talent, performing original material and unique collaborations in a purpose-built share house.
