7000 flocked to Tony White Oval in the remote town of Mount Isa for a day of free live music at triple j’s One Night Stand concert.
With collaborations, surprise guests and ripper mullets, it was an epic production filled with highlights across the day, as triple j presenters Linda Marigliano, Zan Rowe and Ben & Liam broadcast the concert live around the country.
triple j Unearthed winner, Lucky Luke, opened the concert with an energetic hip hop set, filled with guest MC’s from as far away as Alice Springs.
Up next, San Cisco impressed with their new tune ‘Hey Did I Do You Wrong’, as well as debuted brand new song ‘Kids Are Cool’, before inviting Thelma Plum on stage to perform a cover of Peter, Bjorn and John’s ‘Young Folk’.
Tash Sultana overcame a fierce flu to wow the crowd with her massive breakthrough hit ‘Jungle’, as well as treating Mount Isa to her brand new song ‘Murder To The Mind’, which had debuted on triple j just days before.
Never short of a sing-a-long, The Smith Street Band belted out crowd pleasers ‘Death To The Lads’, ‘Young Drunk’ and ‘I Can’t Feel My Face’, and started a heartfelt conversation about mental health before playing ‘I Don’t Wanna Die Anymore’.
Legendary hypeman Fatman Scoop made a last minute appearance to pump up the crowd, and even performed an impromptu ‘call and response’ during Thundamentals ‘Wyle Out Year’.
For the ultimate feel good finale, San Cisco and The Smith Street Band jumped up on stage in fluoro tracksuits to bust out their best moves to Thundamentals’ bouncy jam ‘Sally’.
Over the next few weeks listeners will be able to relive the One Night Stand highlights on Live At The Wireless, kicking off with a best of set at 8pm Mon 24 April. Catch up on all the videos, photos and music news on the triple j website, facebook, Instagram and Snapchat.
