Past Palooza’s have seen bands perform in front of a 250+ crowd, and this year is anticipated to be even bigger! With a new location, extended time and a line-up that suits the many colours of musical taste, there is every reason to get along and enjoy a night out and support some incredibly exciting, live and local entertainment.

Expect to hear the sounds of garage rock to metal, to punk and hardcore. Bands such as ‘For Our Hero’, ‘Lesson of Her Death’ and ‘Steelar’ will battle it out and give everything they’ve got before a panel of judges who will ultimately decide the winners.

Palooza, which is a fully supervised, no pass outs, drug, alcohol and smoke free event, will be held on Friday the 26th of June at The Ajani Centre, 284 Thompsons Road in Lower Templestowe from 7pm to 10:30pm. Tickets can be purchased for $10 at the door on the night or $8 if you purchase pre event from performing bands or by contacting Manningham YMCA Youth Services on 98489544.
