triple j brings back the One Night Stand

After a five-year hiatus triple j has brought back the one-day, all-ages, drug and alcohol-free live music event One Night Stand, in partnership with Music Australia. All that remains is for people to decide where it will be held.

For those unfamiliar with the concept triple j organises a great line up of performers for a regional location that wouldn’t normally see the likes of a music festival. Towns including Natimuk (the inaugural ONS in 2004), Alice Springs (2010), Port Pirie (2006), Dubbo (2013), Geraldton (2016) and Mount Isa (2017) have been visited by artists like Flume, The Jungle Giants, Rufus, Tash Sultana,  Pnau, Silverchair, Ocean Alley and Matt Corby plus attended by thousands of people, giving a significant boost to local tourism. This year’s Stand will raise funds for Australian music industry charity Support Act.

“The ABC is one of the biggest supporters of Australian music and live performance. At a time when the local music industry needs support, the ABC is thrilled to come to the party with the return of triple j’s One Night Stand,” said ABC Managing Director David Anderson.

“We recognise the festival landscape in Australia has changed since we last put on a One Night Stand. 

triple j and the ABC is working with Support Act and Music Australia on how best we can use this event to increase much needed investment in the Australian music industry, while staying true to One Night Stand’s core mission of delivering a one-of-a-kind event, accessible to the public, based in regional Australia.”

Head of triple j, Double J and ABC Country, Lachlan Macara added:

“We’re beyond stoked to be bringing back triple j’s One Night Stand in 2024 to continue our support of Australian artists and provide an opportunity for young people in the regions to get around some live music.

We’re busy working on an incredible line up sure to create another One Night Stand for the history books and we can’t wait to see where we’ll be heading in 2024.”  

You can pitch your regional choice of destination here. Date, line-up and, of course, location will be announced soon.
