Bring It On! Festival major success
Published Monday, 10th April 2017
Fairfield City Council’s Bring It On! Festival was a huge success on Sunday 9 April, with visitors to the largest National Youth Week program in NSW traveling from far and wide.
With a line-up of music stars from across Australia, it was no surprise that some festivalgoers travelled from further abroad than Sydney, with people from regions as far-flung as Perth wanting to catch their favourite acts live.
Mayor of Fairfield City, Frank Carbone, confirmed that this year’s Bring It On! Festival was a massive success.
“Every year Bring It On! Festival is getting bigger and better and this year was no exception, with crowds coming to see our best line-up of entertainment to date,” Mayor Carbone said.
“Bring It On! Festival highlighted the importance of Fairfield City Council’s National Youth Week program in showcasing the talents of our future leaders and setting a reminder as to why youth culture should be recognised and celebrated.”
Highly anticipated performances from headline acts In Stereo, Vlado Saric, The Fisher Boys and Mashd N Kutcher, who closed off the Festival’s dance party with an electrifying set, wowed crowds. Meanwhile, among a pool of outstanding young talent, Barbara Easton Dance Crew took home the crown for the Festival’s dance competition, winning a masterclass at Sydney Dance Company’s iconic finger wharf studios in Walsh Bay.
“This year’s Bring It On! Festival was fantastic. From our outstanding dance competitors, to headline performers, sports and other entertainment, the bar has been set high for next year’s Festival, and I look forward to updating you next year with what’s in store,” Mayor Carbone said.
Former X-Factor finalist and lead performer, Vlado Saric, was in awe at the spirit of the music, sports and arts Festival.
“It was so great to perform here at Bring It On! Festival in front of all these people and I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to contribute to this celebration of youth culture. I can only imagine how awesome Bring It On! Festival 2018 will be,” said Saric.
Crowds were treated to rides and entertainment galore, while foodies flocked to Fairfield Showground for a bounty of International treats.
One of Bring It On! Festival’s ambassadors, Rhonda Ung, was thrilled at the event’s success.
“It was great to see so many people help out to make the Festival a success. This year over 150 people volunteered and it’s a great opportunity for them to learn new skills and experience a large-scale event that they wouldn’t normally be involved with,” said Ung.
Mayor Carbone reiterated the importance of community support and volunteer efforts in contributing to Bring it On! Festival’s success.
“Events such as Bring It On! Festival would not be possible without the generous and continued support of our sponsors and dedicated volunteers,” Mayor Carbone said.
“A huge thank you goes out to everyone who helped pull Bring It On! Festival 2017 together.”
