Triple J’s Matt and Alex are throwing a series of farewell “raves”

Matt Okine and Alex Dyson announced they will depart triple j at the end of the year. But did you really think they were going quietly into the night?

The Breakfast hosts will throw a series of “rave” parties , before heading onto the next adventure (Dyson says he plans to travel, while Okine will pursue a career in television).

Their lap of honour, 5 Raves In 5 Days, will feature DJ sets by a huge line-up of your triple j favourites including Bad//Dreems, Ball Park Music, Bec Sandridge, Client Liaison, Drapht, Gang of Youths, Illy, Japanese Wallpaper, Lisa Mitchell, Nina Las Vegas, Olympia, The Preatures and San Cisco, plus a bunch of triple j presenters. Full list of DJs and dates below.

So why a rave? “As Darude’s messengers here on earth, we felt it was our duty to spread the word of the rave across the country, while saying goodbye to our faithful heaving friends,” the pair explained. “With a heavy heart, and heavy investments in the glow stick industry, we look forward to raving with you one last time.”
