ROCKING the youths of Shepparton again this year and providing entertainment and talent for the region to enjoy, Word and Mouth Greater Shepparton together with Riverlinks have announced plans for the 2012 Shine Youth Festival, to be held during National Youth Week at the Eastbank.
Dubbed ‘Shine at Eastbank’ and aimed at people between the ages of 12 to 25 the event promises to be the climax to National Youth Week, with performances by local winners of the Word and Mouth Battle of the Bands, Jay Sea, as well as winners of the 3630 High School Battle of the Bands, Notre Dame’s Mother Dearest and the award winning teenage rockers, Stonefield.
Project Manager at Word and Mouth, Jim Gow said the team at Word and Mouth have been working to engage young people since its inception in 2003 by continuing to put on a range of events throughout Greater Shepparton.
“Too often we hear that there is nothing to do in the area for our youths and we are constantly looking to change that. We have been chasing Stonefield to perform here for a while.
“The night promises to be fantastic and we are very excited about the partnership between Word and Mouth and Riverlinks for this concert after the success we had with Justice Crew and Riverlinks last year,
“Both organisations have a focus on bringing big names to Greater Shepparton, especially for younger people of the area,” Mr Gow said.
Shine at Eastbank will run on April 14 from 7:30pm and tickets will be on sale soon through Riverlinks Box Office starting at $29 for under 25’s. For further information or to book a ticket contact Word and Mouth on 5821 2229 and Riverlinks on 5832 9511 or visit www.riverlinksvenues.com.au
