Live to the Beat FReeZA is a fusion of Indigenous arts and culture expressed through hip hop dance, graffiti art and singing / song writing. The Live to the Beat committee meet weekly before the Hip Hop classes and on alternative days when organising workshops or an event. They are currently running weekly Hip Hop dance classes in Lilydale on Thursdays with the support of the Indigenous Hip Hop Project, these will run over Term 3 and 4 with the aim to hold a performance in November. There will be Graffiti Art workshops and Singing/Song writing workshops towards the end of the year, which will also be showcased in November.
Delivering a high volume of all-ages live music events throughout the year, Level-Up Productions is a group who love hardcore/punk music as well as indie and acoustic artists. They run events in a wide variety of venues and settings, and their program has a large focus on training and developing leadership skills.
