One Night Stand awaits council approval

Peter Griscti of Angaston is spearheading an application process for a Barossa Valley location to potentially hold Triple J’s ‘One Night Stand’ concert. 

He sent a letter to The Barossa Council on December 7 “seeking council’s in-principle support” for the event.  

The matter was on the agenda for yesterday’s council meeting. 

 ‘One Night Stand’ is a music festival sponsored by the national radio station, Triple J.

It offers regional towns who don’t often get live music, the opportunity to host a full scale concert with several Australian musical acts performing. 

There is also the chance for up and coming local bands to perform as support acts. 

It is an alcohol and drug free all ages event, with a gold coin donation at the gates going toward a local charity or project, usually with a strong focus on supporting youth initiatives.

Past performing artists have included a diverse range of musical styles from Silverchair to Hilltop Hoods.

If council decide to give in-principle support, an online application will be completed. 

Triple J will then contact successfully shortlisted applicants early in the New Year. 

Peter said that if the Barossa was shortlisted, the community would likely be involved in a consultation process.

He said that through initial conversations, there are a number of people in the community who have shown interest in the event, 

Although no confirmations have been made as yet, there have been discussions surrounding potential venues to suggest in the application, taking into consideration previous concert locations and existing traffic management and logistics plans.
