triple j Takeover Shepparton

Quick Info

16 – 20 May 2022

triple j is excited to announce the very first triple j Takeover, where they are hitting the road and bringing triple j to regional Australia.  

From Monday 16 May to Friday 20 May, triple j are broadcasting straight outta Shepparton, and painting the town triple j red with a bunch of free and special events. Alongside ABC Heywire, they will be celebrating the bright young minds in the community and showcasing all that Shepparton has to offer to the rest of the country.

On Monday, things kick off with a live recording of Double J’s Take 5 with Zan Rowe podcast featuring none other than hometown king Briggs. The Yorta Yorta rapper and writer will wind things back to his childhood in Shepparton and go deep on five songs that have driven him, fired him up and set him on the path to where he is today.  

On Tuesday, triple j’s Hobba & Hing and Jess Perkins will bring their beloved storytelling podcast Simply The Jest to Shepparton for a special live recording. Featuring guest comedians Danielle Walker & Tim Hewitt and local legends in the audience, they’ll be on the hunt to find Shepparton's most chaotic, elaborate, and entertaining story.  

On Friday, Shepparton’s Hotel Terminus will be turning red with triple j’s Termi Takeover – a huge end of week party featuring live DJ sets from Mashd & Kutcher, Kinder and your triple j mates Bryce & Ebony, Bridget Hustwaite and Jade Zoe.  

Throughout the week, triple j will be partnering with ABC Heywire’s Takeover and sharing stories from young locals who’ve got something to say about life in Shepparton.  

And if you’re a student at Greater Shepparton Secondary College, you can expect a visit from the triple j Unearthed fam, who are partnering with APRA AMCOS for a songwriting workshop during the week. 

triple j’s Content Director Laura McAuliffe says “Shepparton, on Yorta Yorta country, is a place absolutely booming with music lovers, bright young minds and with a rich Indigenous history. Our triple j Takeover is a chance for us to showcase the town to the rest of the country and give back by throwing some huge events for locals while we’re at it.” 

Tune into triple j from Monday 16 May as Shepparton becomes the star of the triple j airwaves, and listen back to their live podcast recordings on the triple j app.
