Vance Joy And Julia Jacklin’s Fleetwood Mac Cover Will Make You Cry
Tbh, we're all crying.
Last Saturday night, triple j’s One Night Stand rolled into the Tasmanian town of St Helens.
The event was the biggest ever One Night Stand in history, with over 20,000 people reportedly cramming into the town’s footy oval to watch acts like Peking Duk, Vance Joy, Tkay Maidza, Alex the Astronaut, and Middle Kids.
There were plenty of surprise collabs throughout the evening — at one point Maidza was joined on stage by Kwame, Arno Faraji, Carmouflage Rose, Jesswar and The Kid Laroi for a stomping ‘Brontosaraus’ — but a particular standout was Vance Joy and Julia Jacklin’s quietly beautiful rendition of Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Dreams’, played midway through Vance’s headlining set. Watch it below.
Another emotional moment happened earlier in the day, when Alex the Astronaut invited Ball Park Music’s Sam Cromack on stage to pay tribute to their friend and fellow musician Luke Liang, who died suddenly last week at the age of 28.
“He was meant to share the stage with us today and we’ve decided to dedicate a song to him…music is a magical thing and we really miss Luke and we really want this moment to be for him and for you to sing to him too,” Alex told the crowd, before her and Cromack played through Bob Dylan’s ‘Blowin’ In The Wind’.
