Yass has been selected as one of five regional towns in NSW to host the Indent Tour in November 2014.

Facilitated by MusicNSW, The Indent Tour is the only all ages, regional tour of NSW that trains young people to stage their own safe, drug and alcohol free music events. The tour works with some of Australia’s best artists to forge regional touring networks, invest in regional infrastructure and develop the skills of young people around the state.

Last Tuesday the crew from Indent visited the Yass Valley Youth Council to provide an overview of the upcoming tour, which will feature three local acts programmed as supports for a secret headliner who will be revealed on the 24th September. Tickets will be on sale from the 24th!  Details at the <<Facebook>> page
