The lineup for the 2016 instalment of triple j’s One Night Stand just got one band bigger.
The station has added one lucky Unearthed band to the regional festival’s already massive lineup, which is hitting Geraldton on Saturday, 9th April.
The lucky act is local Geraldton punk five-piece Alex The Kid, presumably named after the awesome classic in-built Sega Megadrive game which was basically un-winnable because you just couldn’t save the farking thing.
Uh, anyway, Alex The Kid join a stellar delegation of some of the station’s favourite artists who’ll descend upon the coastal WA suburb for the 10th annual event (well, skipping its 2015 breather), including Alison Wonderland, Urthboy and Boy & Bear.
The headline acts are also set to be joined by an insane 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.
