Oztober returns to Triple M with exclusive Garage Sessions
Triple M’s famous Oztober is set to rock off once again as the month-long celebration of Aussie music returns bigger than ever to the Triple M airwaves from October 1.
From the songs to the artists, and the stories behind them, Triple M will play the best of new and upcoming performers while continuing to honour household Aussie favourites.
Passing the baton to listeners this year, Triple M said listeners will vote for their favourite homegrown act and one of the top 15 artists will be celebrated each day in a countdown to determine which artist is Australia’s G.O.A.T (Greatest Of All Time).
Hit & Triple M Network’s head of music, Mickey Maher, said 2020 has been a tough year for the music industry, so it’s more important than ever that Triple M shines the light on Aussie artists.
“Triple M has passionately and proudly supported Australian music for over 40 years and each year during Oztober, we crank it up a few notches and dedicate the month to celebrate what is great about our homegrown artists,” he said.
“From new Aussie rockers to the legends of Oz, from the radio to our special Oztober Garage Sessions, Triple M fans are in for a treat this year.”
In true Oztober fashion, Triple M will deliver not one, but four Garage Sessions for listeners throughout the month. Fans can win their way to watch some of Australia’s renowned household names live, straight from their living rooms in a series of exclusive performances.
Joining this year’s lineup will be, Hoodoo Gurus, DMAs, Dave Gleeson from the Screaming Jets, Hands Like Houses, Kingswood, Eskimo Joe, Something for Kate’s Paul Dempsey and Diesel.
Triple M will also partner with Movember this year to support and raise awareness for mental health, suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer.
