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.
