‘Oils at the Reef’, a one-off concert performed by Midnight Oil, will premiere at 12:00pm on Sat 11 Nov on MAX.
The intimate and exclusive benefit gig for fans was recorded live in Cairns at the Tanks Arts Centre earlier this month to create awareness of the current state of the Great Barrier Reef. All funds raised from the benefit were donated directly to Great Barrier Reef Legacy and the Australian Marine Conservation Society.
MAX’s exclusive, 90 minute broadcast of the show will feature hits like Blue Sky Mine and US Forces and will also be an opportunity for Oils fans to see the band perform lesser known and more obscure songs including Surfin’ With A Spoon and Koala Sprint, making it a rare showcase that every Oil fan will want to see.
Special thanks to the Aroona and Flying Fish vessels for very generously donating their time on the day.

Oils at the Reef will premiere on MAX Saturday November 11 at midday, and again at 5.00pm later that afternoon. Encore screenings of the concert will also air on Sunday 12th November at 10.00am, 3.00pm and 8.00pm.

Due to significant weekend rainfall, and the forecast of more rain over the next 72 hours, Coffs Harbour City Council, Frontier Touring, John Logan Entertainment and Midnight Oil management have met and reviewed the site for Midnight Oil’s show on Thursday 19 October.

In the interests of public safety and the overall enjoyment of the event for attendees, the decision has been made to move this concert from the Hockey Fields to the nearby C.ex Coffs International Stadium forecourt.

While rain is not currently forecast for Thursday evening, the C.ex Stadium forecourt will be much firmer underfoot than the currently waterlogged Hockey Fields. Limited tickets still remain available for this hugely anticipated show – head to for more info.

All other organisational details – including show times, bar, food and conditions of entry – remain the same.

Ticketholders’ existing show ticket(s) remain valid for entry at the new venue – no further action is required.

Additional buses are being organised as car parking will be at a premium. Event organisers encourage ticketholders to car pool where possible, and to use park and ride locations to catch the free buses to the venue.

Ticketholders are recommended to keep an eye on the websites and social media of Midnight Oil, Frontier Touring, Coffs Coast, John Logan Entertainment and Triple M for further updates.
