Yo Events is a fun-loving team of young people creating live music and skate events across Bendigo - for young people, by young people. The team meets for an hour once a week after school hours.

What do we do?
The Yo Events team does all aspects of event planning and management, including:

  • Planning and logistics
  • Booking artists
  • Budgeting
  • Promotion and marketing
  • Stage / backstage management
  • Sound production and management
  • And more!

If you are aged 12 - 24, want to work in the music industry and gain new skills in event management and production, Yo Events is a good place to start. With connections across the local music and event industries, Yo Events volunteers have opportunities to gain experience with the Bendigo Easter Festival, Bendigo Blues and Roots Music Festival, Groovin' the Moo and plenty more. Former members have gone on to work on international music tours and festivals across the globe.
