Triple J's One Night Stand

Triple J's One Night Stand

Triple J's One Night Stand is a concert hosted in a remote town or city in Australia annually. It is promoted and organised by national radio station Triple J. The host town is selected in the form of a competition where residents of the town must gain approval from local government and a venue. Triple J arranges the artists to perform - usually four high profile Australian bands of a variety of genres.

The concert is a drug and alcohol free event, and entry is free.
