Are you a young artist or band looking to perform at under 18 or all-ages events in Melbourne and around Victoria? FReeZA events are organized by committees of young people across the state for audiences aged 12 – 25. Whether you live in regional or metropolitan Victoria, there’s a FReeZA committee running FReeZA events near you.
The FReeZA program supports young bands, artists and performers by providing performance opportunities in their local communities and in state-wide competitions such as FReeZA Push Start Battle of the Bands.
FReeZA events vary from a small gig at the Nexus Youth Centre in Horsham in south western Victoria, to a youth stage with 1,000 people at a major festival like St Kilda Festival in central Melbourne.
Interested in playing at a FReeZA event?
To get a show with your local FReeZA committee, you should contact them directly through the contact your local FReeZA committee section.
The best approach to getting a gig is to give the contact name listed under your chosen FReeZA committee a call and let them know that you are looking for gigs. Tell or email them your website address, a bio and also a demo and suggest that their committee listens to your music. Give them a follow-up call a few weeks later to remind them about you or your group and to see what their committee thought.
The FReeZA program also partners with leading youth music organisation The Push to run the FReeZA Push Start Battle of the Bands, which many FReeZA Committees participate in hosting. The Battle showcases bands under the age of 21 who perform at Heats in their local communities. When speaking to the committee, ask them if they are running a FReeZA Push Start heat.
