It's kind of a big deal.. Nova is FIVE.. so we’re having an Open Day and massive street party.
This Saturday we open the station doors at 130 Commercial Road, Teneriffe from 9am till 3pm so (for a gold coin donation) you can see where Meshel, Tim and Marty make their laughs, where the sales guys make their money and where the plebs who work here make their coffees.
PLUS from midday till 8pm we’re having a street party to end all street parties (or at least make the other ones really jealous!)
AND.. best of all.. it’s all free.
Nova’s Tim and Marty will be here to say ‘G’day’.. you can get up close and personal with Ryan, Monty and Wippa.. plus meet the Brisbane Broncos and chuck on a set of headphones for the Silent Disco (3-8pm in the Nova carpark) . Booyah!
Check out the markets, grab something to eat or drink (it’s a licensed all-ages event) and enjoy the free music we’ve got lined up.

1.30 - 2pm Shadow Thieves Gold Coast band Shadow Thieves reckon their vigorous expression of music is ‘thought provoking and inspiring enough for even the non-dancers amongst us to rise from our perches & throw our limbs about’.
2.20 - 3pm Lola Revolver Brisbane’s Lola Revolver play a blend of electro-pop that shoots from hip.
3.30 - 4.10pm Mark Sholtez Mark is an Aussie singer-songwriter with a stunning voice. The release of his new album The Distance Between Two Truths is just around the corner. Check out this stunning acoustic performance of All Four Seasons. VIDEO: Mark Sholtez acoustic

7.10 - 8pm Bluejuice The Sydney rockers who gave us “Broken Leg” and “Ain’t Telling the Truth” will show off their mix of pop, rock, hip hop, electro and disco and aim to do what they do best – make you dance in a ‘retarded, unselfconscious way’. (That’s a quote from their Myspace page.)
Florence Street, Teneriffe stage:
12 - 12.30pm Vasy Mollo High school band Vasy Mollo got a taste of the rock star life after winning the chance to open for Evermore in Nova’s Live and Loud concert. Here’s one school of kids who know how to rock.
