Do you like beatboxing? Joel Turner, one of the very best to do it, is hosting a special livestream this month.

If you’re an Aussie noughties kid, you’ll definitely remember Turner’s talent: he rose to prominence as a contestant on Australian Idol in 2003, impressing with his beatboxing skills but ultimately being deemed unsuitable for a singing competition.

The following year, her combined with The Modern Day Poets for “These Kids”, an independently released single that shot up the charts, eventually becoming a number one ARIA hit. The song even earned Turner and his cohorts a nomination at the 2005 ARIA Awards, only losing out to pop rock band End of Fashion in the Breakthrough Artist – Single category.


Turner is still going strong two decades later, and has joined together with TikTok Australia as part of their exclusive creators program for 2023.

On Wednesday, August 16th, the beatboxer and producer will host Joel Turner’s Most Epic Livestream Ever! LIVE at the Bridge Hotel in Rozelle, Sydney (it should be noted that you must be over 18 to attend).
