Published on 24 March 2022


Burnie City Council are extremely excited to partner with Rock Challenge Tasmania to present the Burnie Youth Festival on Friday 22 April 2022.

Now in its 30th year - the Rock Challenge is a state-wide High School (Year 8-10) and College (Year 11-12) music showcase designed to recognise emerging talent and celebrate youth achievement in contemporary music.

The event is the biggest of its kind in Tasmania and provides a valuable educational platform for our young artists.” Rock Challenge Coordinator Brad Harbeck said “These performance opportunities provide a unique opportunity for young people to perform in front of their peers and the wider community. It gives acts a pathway to continue their musical journey, gain valuable experience and reach a wider audience exposure.”
