A free musical youth extravaganza in the Hills
You don't have to travel into the city to see a part of largest arts festival in the Southern Hemisphere – Adelaide's Fringe Festival is coming to the Hills.
Starting at 6.30pm, this musical extravaganza in the Hills celebrates the talents of local young artists (aged 13 – 25), and there will be an exciting mix of music for all to enjoy, ranging from acoustic and jazz to rap and other musical styles.
Six young performers, chosen via a selection panel, will showcase their talent, and between sets, visitors will be treated to the beautiful sounds of acoustic guitarist/singer, Aden Quinn.
At just 14 years of age, this remarkable musician is already an acclaimed artist; he has performed at several South Australian festivals over the past year and has received three awards for best up and coming artist.
Quite simply, he will blow you away with his vocals and ability on the guitar!

This Fringe event is an initiative of the Community Centre's youth reference group. Members of the group wanted to organise an evening that highlighted the positive things that young people are capable of.
Organisers are keen to highlight this event is about young people taking on a leadership role while promoting the talents of others, and we are assured you won't be disappointed with the performances.
So bring along your bean bag, rug or chair, claim a spot on Weymouth Oval (Main Road, Coromandel Valley) and relax under the February evening skies for a great evening of musical entertainment.
Who knows, you may be seeing a young star in the making!
Some refreshments will also be on sale on the night and while entry is free, a donation is welcomed on the night to contribute to event costs.
