Yesterday, Matt Okine and Alex Dyson announced that their time as hosts of triple j’s breakfast show would be coming to an end this December; for Dyson, the end of a 10 year-long career at the broadcaster. Okine of course, came on board in 2014 to replace former host Tom Ballard. For both, it’s been years of early mornings, memorable interviews and ridiculous Friday Dance Offs but now, they’re going on to pursue different projects. And well done to them, as well.
Matt & Alex aren’t going out quietly though, oh no. Instead, they’re heading around the country next week to embark on a ‘five raves in five days’ tour that will see the duo link up with some famous muso friends in each city for one final party. All the events are FREE, but they’re 18+. Check out the line ups for each city below and turn up early.
