Indent, a project of Music NSW, has been providing all-ages events and opportunities for young musicians for 10 years. Indent dates back to the 1996 Drug Summit where one of the many outcomes was the development of a Youth Entertainment Pilot (YEP) project to promote developments in government policy relating to the staging of under 18’s and all ages events and drug and alcohol free entertainment.
This excellent program is now 10 years old so in celebration of ten years of live all-ages drug and alcohol free events MusicNSW has just announced the Indent Ten Year Tour, supported by NRMA Motoring & Services. The Indent Ten Year Tour kicks off in Newcastle on September 24, before winding its way across NSW delivering the best in live music to Cessnock, Sydney, Tamworth, Byron Bay, Tuncurry, Bathurst, Wagga, Bega and Batemans Bay.
Headlined by one of Australia’s finest hip-hop artists, Urthboy, with Jane & El Gusto, each event is supported by emerging local artists. In each location, Indent is working with teams of young people (12 – 25 year olds) who manage the event completely – from programming, logistics and site management to making sure the word gets out.
Tour headliner, Urthboy says, “Some people think the music industry is a great big mystery, especially when you’re not from the city. This tour will be great because during the day we help demystify aspects of the business and during the night we play some crazy all ages shows. I’m really happy to have teamed up with Indent on this and I hope they pack the Berocca.”
