There’s no need to get ‘hangry’ with the variety of delicious food and local stalls on site to keep you partying all afternoon.

All the sweet treats can be found at the Youth Committee Stall including ice cream from Dippin Dots, a caffeine hit at Bella Vita, Burgers and Chips that are Belissima and a yummy barbecue from PCYC.  You definitely won’t go hungry while you groove to the local bands on stage.

Melbourne hip-hop sensation Joelistics headline a knock out street party in the adjoining park, with talented local musicians Ivy & Elle’s, the Lolohea Brothers and EV3 kicking things off from 2pm.

Joelistics, accompanied by Birdz, will be raring to start their set at 5pm, wrapping up the festival.

The Lolohea Brothers bring soulful tunes to the stage with their silky blend of harmonies, while EV3 featuring rocking performer from last year Chad McLean amps up the party tempo.

The killer line up doesn’t stop there, with dynamic duo Ivy & Elle’s made up of Anastasia Comarin and Lara Camm bringing their vivacious vocals to the MYSKATE stage.

For those not familiar with EV3, this four-piece band initially formed in 1997 and started to write original music from the get-go.

EV3 is heavily influenced by bands such as Rage against the Machine, Korn, Fear Factory and Limp Biszkit.

Shortly after recording their EP “Human Machine” at Massos Rathouse Productions, in 1998 - three of the original four lads moved to the big smoke (Sydney) to shoot for the big time and were lucky enough to play support for Body Jar and various other bigger Sydney bands at the time.

They also recorded various singles in some of Sydney’s best studios including Festival Studios where bands such as Grinspoon and Silverchair recorded. They were lucky enough to collaborate on various tracks with Jullian Hamilton, who ended up becoming the front man of the group we now know as The Presets.

Fast forward 20 years (and 9 kids combined) Phil, Dean and Mitch are back together doing with they love, writing originals and jamming on some late 90’s early 2000 covers. Now joined by Sir Chad on vocals, they are back doing what they love, playing music.  

To hear EV3 and all of the other fantastic talents in action make sure you’re at the Griffith Skate Park Saturday 15 September, 2018 for a day of FREE festival fun not to be missed!
