The Set is returning to ABC next month for Season 2 and will be co-hosted by triple j’s Linda Marigliano and Logie Award winner Dylan Alcott.
The series kicks off on Wednesday 28 August at 10pm and will feature a line-up of international and Australian artists.
Recorded in front of a live audience of 250 fans, each episode features three bands who perform their original music in The Set’s purpose-built house and backyard.
At the end of the night, the three acts link up for ‘The Set Piece,’ a special one-off musical collaboration.
Dylan Alcott, speaking from courtside at Wimbledon, says: “I am absolutely stoked for Season 2 of The Set and can’t wait to work on the show with my great friend Linda Marigliano! Everyone associated with this show is passionate about live music and entertainment on Australian television and wants to provide a platform to promote the very best current and emerging music talent.”
Also pumped for the return of The Set, Linda Marigliano says: “Dylan and I couldn’t believe it when our TV parents said we could throw another house party, and not only that, we’re throwing a bunch! This show is a dream to work on, the mixture of charisma and chaos between artists and audience is pure gold. We cannot wait.”
