Local artists showcased their musical talents at the all-ages music event supported by Wellington Shire Youth Council and FReeZA crew Propellor
Local artists showcased their musical talents in front of a big crowd at the recent All-Ages Tour, which was organised and hosted by Wellington Shire Youth Council.
Around 300 music lovers flocked to Sale Memorial Hall on Sunday 20 March for the event headlined by national acts Thelma Plum and Dallas Woods. Local 2021 Battle of the Bands winner Spring Thing (made up of Sale College students and alumni), Triple J Unearthed High artist Emily Jansen (Year 11 student at Maffra Secondary College) and The Voice grand finalist Mick Harrington took to the stage indoors, while Ella McCubbin played acoustic tunes in the courtyard.

Supporting the event
Self-taught DJ Hamish Telfer, who picked up the skill during COVID-19 lockdowns, kept the tunes going between sets. Wellington Shire Youth Council and FReeZA crew Propellor supported the event by decorating the hall with fairy lights and fun seating options, as well as creating a green room for the artists. Sale College drama department and Wellington Community Opp Shop donated an eclectic blend of vintage furniture for the event.
Food trucks operated by local businesses helped feed the punters, while a barbecue was run by a Stratford-based disability support group. This event was one of 20 legs of the drug, alcohol and smoke-free All-Ages Tour coordinated by Australian youth music organisation The Push. The All-Ages Tour event was originally set to take place in October last year but was rescheduled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
