WAKE UP Echuca-Moama organisers (from left) Brody Atkinson, Narj Day-Burns and Lokki Somerville have organised more youth concerts.
WAKE UP Echuca-Moama is continuing to build momentum as it gears up for a July 6 acoustic showcase.
Organiser Lokki Somerville said the free event would feature young performers Ashley Dinsdale, Tahlia Doidge-Tia, Brett Gulberti, Emily Begley, Brian Watts, Ella Horne and Brookey Thomson.
‘‘It will be a home-grown acoustic event. It’ll be a real good mix,’’ Mr Somerville said.
The group will also host a heavy-metal night on July 12, building on the success of a similar night in April.
While it will be an 18 years and over gig, there will be live acts from 2pm to 5pm for patrons 15 years and over, including local acts The Peppers, Albian, Terra Guard and Fields of Reign.
WAKE UP Echuca-Moama has been working closely with police with the intention of creating more under-age music events.
‘‘We’ve got something lined up for each school holidays and there’s more people coming out of the woodwork,’’ Mr Somerville said.
He, along with mates Narj Day-Burns and Brody Atkinson, said youth events were much-needed, given the lack of other options.
‘‘We need to give them something to do. There’s also an ice epidemic with young people in the community,’’ he said.
‘‘WAKE-UP has been slowly growing. We’ve got some new members on board.’’
The heavy-metal night on July 12 will feature two local bands at the Shamrock Hotel
