TRIPLE J BRINGS LIVE MUSIC BACK TO AUSTRALIAN TV

The ABC has announced that it will be launching a new live music TV show, aptly named 'The Set' and premiering Wednesday, October 21st and hosted by Triple J's Linda Marigliano and Dylan Alcott.

The pilot will feature performances from Ball Park Music, Vera Blue, Angus and Julia Stone and The Presets, and all filmed in front of a live audience of around 250 people from the backyard of a sharehouse.

We've been keeping The Set a secret for a while now and are pumped to finally share this news with you. A new live music TV show is going to be a great thing for Australian music, and hosting it together is a bloody dream come true.

Curated by different artists, each episode will see the hosts will invite two guest acts to perform before collaborating on a song together at the show's close. The ABC says you can expect to see artists like Illy, Odette, Baker Boy, Wafia, Mallrat, Angie McMahon, Tia Gostlelow, LANKS and more "to enter the purpose-built share house set for some unforgettable one-off link ups and performances."


Angus and Julia Stone will feature in the show's premiere.

ABC's Head of Music and Creative Development Chris Scaddan said:

There's a real energy inside the ABC about this show. The Set will be something for a new generation of music lovers to call their own.

The Set will be broadcast each Wednesday at 9:30 pm on the ABC from October 31st and will also be available on iview. Additionally, The Set will also air on Saturdays from 10 pm from November 3rd with an extra half hour of content.
