Young people living in the Strathbogie Shire can look forward to an awesome lineup of talent performing at the Blue Skies Youth Music Event on Friday 4th October.

Rat!hammock, Nancie Schipper and Splinter Kiss are all set to perform at the free afternoon gig at the Northern Republic from 12.30- 4.30pm.

Strathbogie Shire Evolve Youth Committee member Dylan Chambers said the event aims to provide local youth the opportunity to experience what live music is all about without paying any great cost for tickets or transportation.

“It’s a great opportunity to see what live music is all about, have an amazing time with your friends, broaden your knowledge of music and meet new young people that could become lifelong friends,” Mr Chambers said.

Headlining the show are low-fi indie rock group Rat!hammock.

Fresh from sell out shows in Melbourne and Sydney to launch their outstanding new single “Ghost”, Rat!hammock are a band on a steep upward trajectory.

With their music on regular rotation on national broadcaster Triple J, the band is gaining momentum having earned a spot in the Laneway Music Festival line up in early 2019.

Also performing at Blue Skies is talented 19-year-old Nancie Schipper. A recent finalist in Triple J’s Unearthed High Competition, Nancie played to a crowd of 40,000 at the 2019 St Kilda Festival with rave reviews.

Rounding out the lineup is local Euroa band Splinter Kiss. A group of four mates from Euroa Secondary College, the boys are pumped to be playing alongside such a quality line up and have had their own success winning Regional Battle of the Bands last year and placing in the finals nationally.

Entry is free, but online bookings are required at www.blueskiesmusic.eventbrite.com.au or by calling Council Offices on 1800 065 993.

A free return bus service will pick up from Avenel, Longwood, Nagambie and Violet Town. Pick up times and locations will be advised closer to the date and will depend on booking numbers.
