Dreamfields youth festival keen to double numbers 

DREAMFIELDS Youth Festival organisers hope to double their audience from 200 this year.

They have put their faith in making the festival free and providing a roof to do the trick.

MC Laura Vogel yesterday said that along with performers, the March 2 festival would give writers and photographers a voice.

She said Dreamfields, which will be held at the Thurgoona Country Club Resort, was raising money to support a headspace facility to help young people deal with depression.

“There are not many places to perform if you’re under 18 so it’s a good place to gain experience,” Ms Vogel said.

Murray High School student Sophie Pecze, 16, who lives with Asperger syndrome, said the festival was a great chance for her to show her passion for creative writing.

Ms Vogel and musician Mia Bettiowill will perform songs Sophie has written at the festival.

Those aged 12-25 wanting to enter work or perform can email craig@craigdent.com.au for an entry form.
