Stripteases, macing and on stage vomming – Read everything that went down at Janofest.

This weekend we were very lucky to be invited down to the Janoskians’ very own lil’ festival and on Saturday night we found ourselves with 12,500 screaming fans enjoying a piece of Janofest. And what a ruddy knees up it was!


Before we fill you in on all the crazy things that those Aussie lads did on stage we need to give a massive shoutout to the boys’ amazing support acts. Luke Friend gave some amazing performances – which included a cover of Rihanna’s FourFiveSeconds, the beautiful Collins Key blew our minds with some brilliant magic tricks, Faydee got the whole crowd jumping with his set and Jack & Jack just made us fall in love. We love them. We absolutely love them.

Prior to the show starting, DJ Yammouni spun some tracks and we had our first special guest of the night with Mazzi Maz invading the stage to have a little boogie. When all five boys arrived on stage, the show opened with high energy performances of ‘This F***ing Song’ and ‘Real Girls Eat Cake’.

Support act Collins Key returned to the stage with a very special magic trick which saw the boys smacking their hands over paper bags – one of which had a nine inch nail inside. The trick ended with the boys pranking Collins with Beau sticking a prosthetic nail through his hand (and pretending to vomit – nice).


It was then time for Jack & Jack to return to stage for a very special edition of Dare Sundays and the Wheel Of Misfortune decided that the two Jacks should be maced live on stage at Wembley Arena. Yes, you read it right… they were actually MACED.

After Jack & Jack were carried off stage, the ‘skians performed current single ‘MoodSwings’ and had a JanoJest as part of another Dare Sunday.

More performances came in the form of ‘Would U Love Me’ and ‘LA Girl’ featuring a once again returning Jack & Jack. And then just as everything was going smoothly, the police arrived. With handcuffs about to be strapped on and the boys about to be shoved in the back of a police van, the policemen – and the Janoskians themselves – all started bloody stripping before a performance of ‘Rock Opera’.

The wonderfully whacky show ended with an encore performance of ‘Best Friends’ that saw Gaz from Geordie Shore (eh!?) join the boys and all of their support acts on stage and then it was over and we all sadly went back to the real world.

It was a very… interesting night, but an excellent one at that and we loved every minute of it. Please come back soon, boys?
