triple j’s One Night Stand is coming to Lucindale, South Australia.
So mark the date: Saturday, 14 September, 2019 and get ready to be entertained by the Hilltop Hoods, Meg Mac, Ocean Alley, G Flip and the triple j Unearthed winner.
triple j's One Night Stand is a massive free, all ages, drug and alcohol free concert.
The Lucindale community campaign to get One Night Stand to come to Lucindale has been running for years, with the Lucindale ONS Facebook page sharing the campaign since 2012. It may have taken a few years but the bid group finally convinced triple j that Lucindale is the perfect spot for an overnighter.
One Night Stand concerts have a massive national following, usually attracting between 7,000 – 15,000 concert goers, with last year’s event at St Helens, Tasmania attracting 20,000 people. The benefits from this event will be spread across the Limestone Coast.
The Naracoorte Lucindale Council will enter into a partnership arrangement with triple j, with Council supporting and funding the broader event costs and triple j bringing the entertainment and covering the production and broadcast costs. The concert is broadcast through triple j live on the day and is televised with heavy promotion of our area and community in the lead up.
“We are very excited to have been selected to host the triple j One Night Stand. We’re looking forward to showing off the Naracoorte Lucindale area to the rest of Australia and enjoying a boost to tourism and the local economy. This is an opportunity for our young people to experience a fantastic event which provides a platform to highlight the youth in our community. The immediate economic impact will be substantial, and will provide opportunities for locals to come together and celebrate everything great about our local community” Mayor Erika Vickery OAM said.
The Naracoorte Lucindale Council has been working with representatives from the Lucindale Lions Club, Lucindale Football Club, Lucindale Netball Club and the bid convenors to ensure the event is successful.
One of the bid convenors Kate Rayner sums up the group’s excitement “How exciting! What an amazing experience to have this top music event in our town, of Lucindale! Thousands of people will be visiting our town and region, travelling from all parts of Australia. Last year in Tassie at St Helens, over 20,000 went. With the line up that has been announced we are expecting similar numbers. With our experience and community spirit Lucindale will put on a great event and we can’t wait to host the triple J One Night Stand 2019!”.
The concert is being held at the Lucindale Oval with Yakka Park (the South East Field Days site) hosting a tent city and campsite. Pre-booking your campsite is a MUST at www.lucindaleons.com.au. Don’t turn up on Saturday morning and expect a campsite with concert views – that won’t happen and you may be left with nowhere to stay and very few alternative accommodation options.
