Yesterday triple j breakfast hosts and all-round legends Matt and Alex broke morning commuters hearts by announcing they'll be leaving the station at the end of the year. And while we're super saddened by the news, as with every teary professional departure comes the silver lining: a blowout leaving party. And Matt and Alex's is going to be a big one.

Not content with a Woolies cake and a case of beer in the ABC offices, the pair are taking their sayonara soiree around the country for 5 Raves in 5 Days. They'll visit Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth, bringing with them a slew of Aussie artists for DJ sets. Among the guest DJs are Client Liaison, The Preatures, Gang of Youths, Montaigne, Lisa Mitchell, Ball Park Music and more.

The whole thing kicks off next week (so soon!) on Monday, November 28 in Perth before wrapping up on the Friday in Brissie. The best part? They're all free. It's gonna be a big week. Here's the lineup.
