IT'S a small town with big ideas - now Lucindale needs your help to bring Triple J's One Night Stand music concert to the SE next year.
What used to be a formal competition where rural communities would apply for the event has now become a process about grabbing the radio station's attention and proving the region is suitable.
A Lucindale One Night Stand sub-committee has been formed and is meeting once a week to manage and organise the framework in consultation with stakeholders.
Kate Rayner, Louise Stock, Daniel Ryan, Hayley Miller, Tim Williams and Charlie Riggs are behind the campaign, promoting Lucindale as the "perfect" location with the support of local groups, schools and councils.
They want to encourage people all over the Limestone Coast and beyond to get on board and share any quirky ideas they might have - whether it be events, photos or related paraphernalia - on their Facebook page.
Ms Rayner said thousands of people travelled from far and wide to attend the free event in previous years.
"It's advertised as 'Triple J's massive free concert that comes to you - five hot bands, one regional town, one live broadcast, one live television show and endless good times'," she said.
"To be successful our region and town will be required to demonstrate we have the resources to hold it, as well as endorsement from regional communities, clubs and councils.
"So, we are encouraging the younger generation, schools, all music lovers, businesses and communities in our region to support our idea and drive the enthusiasm."
Lucindale Area School captain Daniel Ryan believes the town should be given the opportunity to host the massive event.
"We are trying to express the commitment of our regional community to have the Triple J One Night Stand here," he said.
"We have Yakka Park so it would be a very viable thing - I think we can put on a pretty good party.
"Lucindale is pretty much smack bang in the middle of Melbourne and Adelaide so I feel we could get a big turnout.
"We have so many people in the community who want it. It's all very exciting at the moment."
This year's Triple J One Night Stand was hosted by Dubbo, New South Wales and featured artists such as Flume, Seth Sentry, The Rubens and Ball Park Music.
About 18,000 people flocked from all over the country to attend.
Lucindale's Yakka Park, which is a 45ha site with ample parking and facilities, hosts over 20,000 people for the SE Field Days every year.
Year 12 student Hayley Miller said with the space and the set-up at Yakka Park, Lucindale was more than capable of hosting the 2014 event.
"It would be nice not just for Lucindale but for the whole region," she said. "We've got the perfect site for it and we've proved we have the ability to look after a large amount of people through the field days.
"The process at the moment is getting people behind it to get Triple J's attention."
The Triple J One Night Stand has been held in SA twice - Port Pirie hosted it in 2006 and Tumby Bay in 2011.
It is a free, all ages, drug and alcohol free, live music event held in a different regional town in Australia every year.
Triple J provides the bands and other logistical set-up but the town needs to be able to show it has the facilities and community support to host it.
As of yesterday, the "Lucindale One Night Stand 2014" Facebook page had almost 5000 "likes" and the campaign was building a strong following and presence on Twitter.
- ABC SE plans to host a "Mini One Night Stand" with local artists in Lucindale on September 20. Stay tuned for more details.
Why should Lucindale host the Triple J One Night Stand in 2014?
- Yakka Park is a 45 hectare site and can cater for thousands of people.
- Lucindale is used to hosting large events such as the SE Field Days each year.
- Fairly central location between Adelaide and Melbourne - just under four hours to Adelaide and five and a half hours to Melbourne.
- Great publicity for the SE region as a whole.
