This year, on Saturday 14 September, triple j is taking Hilltop Hoods, Meg Mac, Ocean Alley and G Flip to Lucindale on the idyllic South Australian Limestone Coast, cozied up to the Victorian border and only a few hours away from Adelaide for the One Night Stand.
With a population of around 500 people, it’s one of the smallest towns to host the concert and it’s the first time in eight years the concert series has been back to South Australia, the last time was Tumby Bay in 2011.
Mayor Erika Vickery says “We very excited to have been selected to host the triple j One Night Stand featuring some of Australia’s best acts. We’re looking forward to showing off Lucindale to the rest of Australia. This is an opportunity for our young people to experience a fantastic event which provides a platform to highlight the youth in our community. This event will show that small communities, such as Lucindale, can do incredible things.”
The Lucindale community have been running a very long campaign to host the One Night Stand with the grassroots campaign beginning with a Lucindale ONS Facebook page in 2012 and in the seven years since, it’s built up 6,000 odd likes, which accounts for everybody in town, as well as the neighbouring towns.
Parts of triple j’s One Night Stand will be broadcast live and concert highlights will feature in a two-hour rage special on ABC
