Vibe Alive heads for Rockhampton

It’s now less than three weeks until Vibe Alive lands in Rockhampton! This exciting youth festival has already partied its way across two states, with hugely successful festivals held in Coonamble and Port Augusta.

Now Vibe Alive is gearing up to bring the students of Queensland two days of creative, inspiring, healthy fun!

Vibe Alive is a two day festival for young Australians of all backgrounds that incorporates music, sport, art, education and healthy living in a high-energy, youth-friendly setting. Vibe Alive offers students the chance to sing, dance, play, create and learn in an environment that allows them to express themselves, share their talents and celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures.

Participants also have the opportunity to explore healthy living and career options and boost literacy skills.

Joining the hundreds of students expected at the event will be former Australian Idol Casey Donovan and star of So You Think You Can Dance? Courtney Walter. As well as performing for festival-goers, the stars will be judging students’ performances and offering aspiring singers and dancers advice and inspiration.

The Rockhampton Vibe Alive will be held on November 19 & 20 at the Rockhampton Showgrounds New Exhibition Road, Rockhampton.

To help the community of Rockhampton celebrate this exciting event, a FREE Vibe Alive Community Concert will be held at Rockhampton Showgrounds New Exhibition Road, Rockhampton from 6.30pm on Wednesday November 19.
