Double J’s BANG ON is heading to Melbourne for our first ever live show in the city!

Join co-hosts Zan Rowe & Myf Warhurst as they transform their weekly podcast for a live audience at Darebin’s Music Feast, hosted at the Thornbury Theatre on Sunday October 21. Now in its 22nd year, Darebin Music Feast encompass 120 events across 26 different venues, thoughtfully curated to showcase a diverse swathe of artists and musicians.

Zan & Myf say “Ever since we did our live show in Sydney last year as part of Yack Festival, people have been asking ‘When are you going to bring it to Melbourne?’. Now, we’ve finally been able to make it happen, and at a beautiful venue… We don’t want to spoil it, but let’s just say we have some very fun things planned.”

Watch all the action unfold from 3pm as they bang on about the week’s biggest stories in music, art, life and stuff.
