One Night Stand cut short by rain

WASHED out, bogged, rain logged  - any way you choose to describe it, Mother Nature did not smile favourably on this year's Triple J One Night Stand.

Heavy rain caused technical problems which cut short rapper 360's show and completely cancelled the event-closing set by headliners the Temper Trap last night.

Both 360 and Temper Trap front man Dougy Mandagi apologised to the water-logged crowd after it ended nearly two hours ahead of schedule.

Thousands of punters braved the wet and cold conditions, donning ponchos, gum boots and beanies to see their favourite acts.

Gold Coaster Tom Hobman dressed for the weather, wearing a wetsuit and mask and snorkel.

"If it's going to rain then at least I'll enjoy it," he said as he queued to get into the Dalby Showgrounds.

"I reckon I'm the only person here who's hoping it gets colder and wetter."

Sunshine Coast residents Jesse Flack, Levi Teagle and Andrew Savage had a similar idea, wrapping themselves in plastic bags and tape to keep their clothes dry.

The annual all-ages show was opened by Triple J Unearthed winners Mace and the Motor.

They were followed by indie darling Matt Corby, who also enjoyed a relatively dry set.

But the rains kicked in during Stonefields' set and did not let up for 360, who was clearly frustrated  by the technical issues caused by the big wet.

"Mother Nature, I (expletive) hate you," he said.

The free event attracted music fans as far afield as Rockhampton and Perth, as reported by organiser Triple J.

The early finish to the concert saw Dalby's pubs inundated with soaked revelers looking to get dry and continue the festivities.
