Revellers won’t go hungry with a tasty selection of food trucks on site not to mention a pop-up mocktail bar.

The festival will be held in conjunction with Youth Week WA and celebrates all things youth, however the whole community is invited to attend this free event.

This is an annual drug, alcohol and smoke free event delivered by Bunbury's Youth Advisory Council (YAC) in collaboration with the Bunbury City Council.

Bunbury Youth Mayor Sean Smith encourages everyone to come along and enjoy the action.

“This is the fifth year of the event which continues to grow and the Youth Advisory Council is proud to bring something exciting and relevant to Bunbury’s young people,” Mr Smith said.

“This year’s event is set to be the biggest to date.”

The Shift Youth Festival will kick off at 3pm and run until 8pm.

Free shuttle buses will be running to the concert / activity site from designated Bunbury areas.

A double pass to Groovin the Moo will also be up for grabs during the festival.
