Support young musicians at upcoming FReeZA music events
Local young musicians will take to the streets and Rosalind Park over two special FReeZA-supported events.
On Saturday April 8, a Busking Festival will take place across the city centre between 9am and 1pm, with acts performing at the Library gardens, Hargreaves Mall, Sidney Myer Place, Bath Lane and View Street.
City of Greater Bendigo Community Partnerships Manager Steven Abbott said the Busking Festival is a new event.
“We have a number of aspiring young local musicians and this is a great opportunity to showcase their talents to the public. There will be 15 musicians performing across the city centre, so it would be great to see people who are out and about this Saturday stop and show their support,” Mr Abbott said.
The second event is the annual FReeZA Easter Gig on the Cedar Stage in Rosalind Park on Saturday April 15 between 5.30pm and 8pm.
Local act Isaac Everett will be first to take to the stage at 5.30pm, followed by Amber Isles at 6pm and headline act Woodlock at 7pm. Woodlock toured Australia last year and have recently returned from Canada. This is the band’s first time in Bendigo.
FReeZA committee member Ruby Mae Baker said she looked forward to helping stage the events.
“The Buskers Day will be an amazing opportunity to soak up the culture and music of Bendigo, while celebrating youth and their contribution to the city. The Easter gig is an awesome chance to see great performers in a fun-packed weekend, with entertainment for all ages to be enjoyed by everyone,” Ms Baker said.
