Scoop is currently touring Australia, so when it emerged that he’d be performing in Mount Isa (literally across the road from where this year’s One Night Stand is going down), the wheels were put in motion for something very special.
Speaking with Veronica & Lewis this morning on triple j ‘Breakfast’, Fatman Scoop confirmed that he’ll be popping across to this year’s One Night Stand, as something of a hype man for the festival.
Fellow One Night Stand act The Smith Street Band have already put their hand up for a collab with Scoop too:

Scoop has said he’s looking forward to the regional shows because, “You get to see the people.”
“I like to see a different side of Australia, when you go to those places that aren’t reached you get a different flavour of people,” he said.
Scoop also suggested that Lewis’ name is far too bland, and decided that he was going to make it his mission to find him a better name, suggesting ‘L, The Ladies’ Lover’ and ‘Super L’.
Scoop will join The Smith Street Band, Thundamentals, San Cisco, Tash Sultana and local Unearthed artist Lucky Luke at this year’s One Night Stand. His current Australian tour will see him play in Sydney tonight, and you can check out details for his Aussie jaunt right here.
