The winner is…
The coastal Western Australian town will play host to triple j’s annual One Night Stand extravaganza.
Geraldton joins fellow festival-overlooked towns such as Dubbo and Cowra (NSW), Dalby and Ayr (QLD), Tumby Bay and Port Pirie (SA), Alice Springs (NT), Collie (WA), and Mildura, Gippsland, and Natimuk (VIC) to host an ONS party.
A stellar delegation of some of the station’s favourite artists will descend upon the region on Saturday 9th April for the 10th annual event (well, skipping its 2015 breather), including Alison Wonderland, Urthboy and Boy & Bear.
Locals be like:
The headline acts are also set to be joined by a stellar cast of Aussie guests, making for some special, one of a kind onstage collabs. Alison Wonderland will be joined by Benjamin Joseph from SAFIA, Patience Hodgson from The Grates, BRAVE and newcomer Jess Kent.
Urthboy is bringing along Bertie Blackman, Sampa The Great and Kira Puru, while Boy & Bear will be joined on stage by Powderfinger frontman Bernard Fanning.
As always, triple j will broadcast the entire event live on the radio. Check out all the deets for the 2016 edish of triple J’s One Night Stand, below.
