The biggest RNB icons of the 90s, 00s and beyond are heading Down Under this November – here’s everything you need to know, including where to collapse when you’ve booty shook your little heart out.

RNB Fridays Live is back for its fourth year, and we’re shaking in our bedazzled, hip-hugger flare jeans with excitement!


Kids, you’re in for a real treat, because 2019 marks RNB Fridays Live’s biggest lineup to date:

  • Janet Jackson!
  • Black Eyed Peas!
  • 50 Cent!
  • Jason Derulo!
  • Keri Hilson!
  • Sisqo!
  • J-Kwon!       
  • Plus a mystery act to be announced!

Nope, we’re not pulling ya leg! All these huge artists, live on one stage, on a balmy November night in Oz!

And of course, the host will once again be RNB legend Fatman Scoop, the ultimate hype-man who makes an already unreal experience even better! You don't have to have a hundred, fifty, twenty or even ten dollar bill to get yo' hands up at that news.

RNB Fridays Live will be gracing five Aussie capitals in 2019 - Perth, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane and Sydney. This year, the shows are taking place at smaller-scale, intimate grounds to ensure your experience is as memorable as can be.

  • Friday 8th November: Perth – HBF Park. Tickets available here.
  • Saturday 9th November: Melbourne – Marvel Stadium. Tickets available here.
  • Sunday 10th November: Adelaide – Adelaide Showground. Tickets available here.
  • Friday 15th November: Brisbane – Brisbane Showgrounds. Tickets available here.
  • Saturday 16th November: Sydney – Giants Stadium. Tickets available here.

With a lineup this stacked, the shows are tipped to to sell out fast, so get in toot sweet! General public tickets are on sale from Monday 19th August at 11am. 


The only thing better than attending the biggest party in Australia is having somewhere closeby to crash after, where you and your gang can keep the good times rollin' and stave off the sad, post-show comedown. 

As luck would have it, we have YHAs in every city RNB Fridays Live will be poppin’ off, and all are super close to the action!

We've got fun multi-share rooms if your group is after the ultimate slumber party, and double ensuite private rooms if you and your S.O. are looking to treat yo'selves after a dazzling night out. 

We've also got great facilities such as a fab pool and sauna at Sydney Central YHA (for Morning After recovery) and a brand spankin' new rooftop bar at Brisbane City YHA (for pre-drinks with a stunning view!)

Book your stay with us – and you’re free to follow The Black Eyed Peas' advice and absolutely Pump It, knowing your comfy bed isn’t far away. Don't wait too long though!


Rally the troops, get your tickets, book your crash pad at YHA, then all that’s left to do is frost your tips, perfect your running man and practise the important lyrics you'll need to scream, from “Jason Deruuuuuuuuulo” to “that thong, thong, thong, thong, thong.”

See ya on the other side!
