The festival is a free event held annually at the skate park on Charles Court Reserve, Nedlands Foreshore. Designed for 12 – 25 year olds, 4Sure Music and Skate Festival showcases some of the best young local talent Perth has to offer. 4Sure festival is both a relaxing and exciting day out, bringing together young people from all over the Western Suburbs and beyond.

Come along for the best of Perth's local musical talent and some skating at the foreshore. This is a popular youth festival coordinated by youth advisory counciles from City of Nedlands, City of Subiaco and Town of Mosman Park.
