Following the success of the inaugural event last year, the Live It Up Festival is back in 2014 with another day of great music exclusively for music lovers under 18 years of age. The festival will take place at the RNA Showgrounds on Saturday, June 21 with an eclectic mix of bands and performers on the bill.

Parkway Drive, perhaps Australia’s biggest heavy music export at the moment, will be headlining the main stage. Following the success of their latest album Atlas, it has been a big year for the boys from Byron Bay with an international tour and the recently completed Groovin’ the Moo series of regional festivals staged around Australia last month.

Having cemented their reputation as one of Australia’s favourite rock bands of the moment with their Hungry Ghost album, Violent Soho will also be taking to the Live it Up stage, while The Jungle Giants will add another festival appearance to what has been a busy period for the Brisbane-based quartet.

Also featuring at Live it Up in 2014 will be In Hearts Wake, The Creases, hip-hop up and comer Allday and Unearthed High finalists Lunatics on Pogosticks.

Given the lack of music events for under 18’s in Brisbane, this is a great opportunity for young people to see some of Australia’s best bands and to help secure the future of the festival. The Live it Up Festival is a smoke, drug and alcohol free event, with tickets from just $50.
