One Night Stand heads to Dalby

DALBY is set to enjoy the benefits of a One Night Stand which will have residents talking for years to come.

Triple J radio presenters today announced the Western Downs hub would host up to 10,000 people for the annual One Night Stand concert at the Dalby Showgrounds on June 2.

The line-up will feature popular acts The Temper Trap, 360, Stonefield and Matt Corby as well as an original band from the Dalby or Toowoomba region chosen from the Triple J Unearthed website.

Mayor Ray Brown said council had been in negotiation with Triple J for some time confirming the details of the free, all-ages event.

"What a wonderful way to promote our region," Cr Brown said.

"It is good for everyone, not just the young people."

Triple J manager Chris Scaddan said the station planned to air stories on issues faced in the region in the lead-up to the concert.
