Triple J Announce Birthday Celebrations

Forty years? No, you can’t be serious. Now I feel old. It’s almost four decades since Triple J have started sending tunes across the airwaves and just in the JJJ style, they’re creating a night that will be spoken about for years. The Beat The Drum: Celebrating 40 Years of triple j gig is going to be quite the spectacle and one hell of a way to start the new year. Hilltop Hoods, The Preatures, Vance Joy, Ball Park Music will be there, have they got your attention yet?

The 16th of January will see Sydney’s The Domain play host to the jam packed lineup featuring some of the who’s who of the J’s alternative music scene. It’s set to fill your soul and make you feel all warm and fuzzy (that’s because of the music not because of the alcohol).  With Courtney Barnett and Remi being just some of the guest appearances promised for the night and DJ sets from Triple J’s own KLP and the very lusciously talented Nina Las Vegas, you just cannot miss this night. Ball Park Music is also going to be there. Look, if we haven’t made it obvious, you have to go. We don’t want to hear excuses.

There are still acts that are yet to be announced, so this lineup hasn’t peaked just yet. It’s just so exciting. Triple J have also promised “very special guests, will not only perform their trademark festival sets, but there will heaps of surprises along the way, including some incredible acoustic arrangements, unexpected collaborations and covers of legendary Australian hits”.

Can you feel a sickie coming on too? 

Beat The Drum will be part of next year’s Sydney Festival and will take place on Friday, 16th January 2015 at The Domain. Tickets for Beat The Drum go on sale Monday, 27th October. Triple j will also broadcast Beat The Drum live.
