It’s not blog update day, but this breaking news is worthy of a mention.
Triple J announced today it’s annual regional One Night Stand, which brings big-name artists to tiny towns, will be taking Illy and Dan Sultan to an undisclosed location on Saturday 17 May this year. Four more artists and the location are yet to be announced.
Thing is, the Js are also presenting (read: chucking a lot of money/promo behind) Big Pineapple Music Fest, which features headliners Bliss N Eso, The Living End, Art Vs Science, Spiderbait and Dead Letter Circus… on the same day. The BPMF will be happening at – you guessed it – the big pineapple in Nambour, an hour north of Brisbane.
Organizers this morning tweeted:
I guess we’re not the only ones waiting for Thursday’s location announcement!

UPDATE: Brisbane band Violent Soho, who pulled out of Big Pineapple Music Fest in January citing “scheduling clashes,” have just been announced as additional One Night Stand headliners, along with Illy, Dan Sultan and The Jungle Giants. So far, BPMF has not made comment. Thundamentals also pulled out of the festival a month after the initial lineup announcement.
