Village is hoping to stand out
NOT to be discouraged by their loss last year, the village of Tyalgum will turn up the heat again in an attempt to win a One Night Stand.
Local resident Michelle Van den Broek has vowed she will not rest until Triple J bring their all ages One Night Stand concert to her town.
This year the concert will feature performances by the Hilltop Hoods, Shihad, End of Fashion and Katalyst in a tiny town on May 18.
She said the hunt was on to gather as many supporting signatures as possible to petition Triple J, but the real challenge would be impressing the judges.
Selection criteria requires entrants to take cardboard cut-outs of breakfast hosts Jay and the Doctor around their tiny town.
"So we're looking for some sick ideas. I thought we'd do it like a travel album, picking the cut-outs up at the airport, taking them up Mount Warning, getting them horseriding," she said.
"But I'm sure there are sicker people out there than me who have some ideas and would like to get involved.
"This is a shire-wide thing that would just take place at Tyalgum."
Ms Van den Broek has urged people to contact her with ideas or to take a petition before April 15. Call her on 0403 261 584 or email michellevdb@hot mail.com.
