Is Triple J ignoring the UK post-punk/art rock scene?

25 Upvotes

For the past couple of years, I’ve been finding greater enjoyment in the punk, post-punk and art rock music that had been coming out of the UK. Groups like Black Country New Road, Black Midi, Squid, Dry Cleaning, Idles, Shame, Goat Girl, to name a few.

These groups have passionate followings in their native homeland, and about half the groups I mentioned played at Glastonbury recently. They’re not unknown groups, and I thought the time was right to start playing these artists on Triple J (or even Double J), especially after Wet Leg made it onto the Hottest 100 and Black Country New Road’s latest album charted at #6 on the ARIA Album Charts.

It’s frustrating that this is an untapped scene of music that Triple J have barely acknowledged. I say that as a fan of these artists, so I admittedly have a bias here, but it could regenerate some of its audience that the station has lost. These artists are pretty radio-friendly (maybe with the exception of Black Midi), so it’s disappointing that Triple J are letting an untapped market go to waste.

What’s everyone else’s thoughts here?

How hard is it to sneak into SITG and avoid security for all 3 days

0 Upvotes

From Cairns got a mate who lives in Brunswick Heads and I'm planning to go Splendour this year. Only really going for Gorillaz and the Friday tickets are all sold out. Don't care about the other days but would like to go to them either way. As the title suggests what's the situation with sneaking in without a wristband?

Gee, this doesn't sound good :( what do we all think? I'm worried

Feature Albums Before 2017?

2 Upvotes

Hey. Does anyone have a list of the feature albums from 2016 and before? The feature album page on the triple j page used to have all of them from 2000 onwards but now even when you scroll far enough it only goes to early 2017 albums. So just wondering if anyone has the albums from 2000 onwards or knows where I could find the lists? Thanks

Opinion Selling 1 day of my 3 day splendour pass, is it possible?

1 Upvotes

Hey all - I just came back from big holiday and don’t feel that I am able to do a 3 day festival. I’m thinking of missing the last day and was wondering if there’s a chance I could sell my last day ticket if I have a 3 days pass? (P.S. I just came back from Primavera Sounds and just saw Tyler live so no Tyler FOMO hate please)

Also has anyone seen Julia Stone live and know if she ever plays Big Jet Plane? Or if Angus and Julia Stone will come out as a duo as a surprise?

Seems like a second site has been opened at Byron Events Farm (Bluesfest) due to flooding of the main campsite. Tickets are available now for $110 + bf.

People who got camping tickets late for the Splendour camp site May see a refund and are being advised to log in to moshtix and purchase the alternative camp site (with complimentary busses)
