I can remember listening to the first One Night Stand build up in 2004 and thinking it was such a great concept, not only for the town involved, also the artists and Triple J too, what better way to give something back to regional areas than have Triple J turn up on your doorstep and put on a party.
One Night Stand which is run by the multifaceted Triple J is an annual concert that is held in a remote town or city somewhere in Australia and it is a free concert with usually gold coin donations on the door that goes back into a local community charity, Triple J uses all Australian artists on the bill for the night, up incoming artists and some big names too from all different music styles.
Triple J promotes it and manages the concert these days, in past years the people of the town were in charge of getting permission from the local government and also a venue too, I’d say the logistics and the size of the event was getting too big, as these things get bigger and bigger, more control is needed for safety etc especially since the gig is all ages.
The One Night Stand has been running since 2004 and still continues to grow.
This year it has hit a new level too in regards to coverage, ABC TV is showing the concert and also its being broadcast as per normal on the radios stations around Australia, showing the One Night Stand on TV is going to be huge as we all can enjoy the night with the people of the town.
Check out Triple J’s website for the TV coverage and times for the One Night Stand.
