Youth Week shapes up to be biggest yet

It’s shaping up to be Eurobodalla’s biggest youth week in history, with the return of Currents Battle of the Bands, trivia, outdoor movies, a cultural workshop and more.

Council’s youth development officer Michaela Burtenshaw was excited to see Currents Battle of the Bands return to the Moruya RSL Hall on Saturday 22 April.

“It was such a hit last year with teenagers rocking up in the hundreds,” Ms Burtenshaw said.

“It’s an epic vibe with a line-up of bands and solo artists as well as food trucks, games and an outdoor chill zone.”

Ms Burtenshaw said Currents Battle of the Bands was the biggest youth event of the year.

“It’s one of the only local events purely for young people, and a safe space for teens to dance, perform and have an awesome night out with friends. The youth musical talent in Eurobodalla has always been outstanding,” Ms Burtenshaw said.

“The best acts on the night receive a music voucher to Planet TX Music in Moruya and the winning performance scores a free professional recording session, plus opportunities to headline for touring artists at local gigs throughout the year.”

Musicians from last year’s winning act will headline the event and a youth DJ will keep vibes strong.

Tickets are free, thanks to funding from NSW Government, and expected to go quick. Visit Eventbrite to reserve a spot.

NSW Youth Week is held annually in April, and this year Eurobodalla Council’s youth team has gone big to celebrate.

“We have spread free events across Eurobodalla, providing something for everyone no matter where they live,” Ms Burtenshaw said.

“We have heaps on offer for the under-18 crowd, plus we’re starting new programs and events for 18-24 year olds.”

“It’s our first free dumpling and trivia night at Mami’s Bar in Batemans Bay on Wednesday 26 April. We’re keen to create a fun social environment and hear more ideas from young adults on what they want to see and do around Eurobodalla.”
