In April 2017, Mount Isa hosted Triple J's One Night Stand music festival at Tony White Oval.
While in town, Triple J Breakfast Program presenters Ben and Liam took the opportunity to tour Mount Isa Mines getting a real taste of what it's like to work at an underground mine.
Harry Mounsey, Drill and Blast Engineer escorted the Triple J crew around our R62 and X41 underground copper mines. Harry became the unofficial 'face' of Mount Isa for Triple J's audience after featuring in a Triple J online video announcing Mount Isa as the successful location for 2017's One Night Stand.
During the mine tour, Ben and Liam mingled with our workforce and visited the One Mile Below sign and underground workshop to view our underground mining machinery. Triple J posted a video of the mine tour to Facebook, and in less than seven days it had already attracted more than 217,000 views and thousands of reactions and comments.
One Night Stand occurs annually and is a free and family-friendly concert that features five bands in a regional town for one night only.
More than 7,000 people attended One Night Stand in Mount Isa and were treated to popular bands, San Cisco, Tash Sultana, The Smith Street Band and Thundamentals, with special surprise performances by Indigenous artist Thelma Plum and international hip hop heavyweight Fatman Scoop, as well as Unearthed Competition Winner and local artist, Lucky Luke.
