TEEN RAVE

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL -

“LET the youth be a part of some­thing big­ger” were the words of Lim­it­less Un­der­age or­gan­iser So­phie Wel­lard, who is bring­ing a sec­ond rave to the Whit­sun­day Arts and Cul­tural Cen­tre this Satur­day.

This time, the teenage party Lim­it­less Un­der­age is strictly jun­gle-themed.

Young gun DJs such as DJ Foster, Shadow Boy, Lit­tle Miss DJ and Pablo Six will bring their house hit­ting sets.

Still teenagers, these DJs are paving their way in the DJ world hav­ing al­ready per­formed at fes­ti­vals from Stere­osonic, Fu­ture Mu­sic Fes­ti­val, Su­per­nova and Schoolies events.

“I al­ways try to make any gigs Jake (DJ Foster) picks up ■ What: Lim­it­less Un­der­age jun­gle party ■ When: Satur­day, June 27 ■ Time: 7-10pm ■ Con­tact: 4946 4444 or www.thewacc.com.au and ev­ery time I watch and lis­ten to him per­form it just gets bet­ter – ev­ery time – this could be the start of some­thing big for this tal­ented young man,” So­phie said.

The drug and al­co­hol-free event is for any­one aged be­tween 12-17.

There will even be prizes for best dressed.

For So­phie the task of bring- ing some­thing new for the youth of the Whit­sun­days was al­ways go­ing to be hard but not im­pos­si­ble.

Fol­low­ing the suc­cess of the WACC’s first teen rave, she was de­ter­mined to make the next one big­ger and bet­ter and even themed.

“By throw­ing this I am hop­ing to get out to teenagers that you don’t need drugs and al­co­hol to have a good time,” she said.

“I want ev­ery­one to be talk­ing about it for a week af­ter, say­ing how much fun they had, and I want there to be a pop­u­lar de­mand so it can keep com­ing back.”

Tick­ets are $20 pre­sale or $30 on the door and can be pur­chased through the WACC.
