Fitz Live, Wagga’s micro music festival, is giving a group of students the chance to show off their professional talents.
The Kooringal High School students are part of the vocation educational and training (VET) entertainment course and they have volunteered to be a part of Fitz Live, which is being held for the first time on Saturday, March 10.
More than 20 acts featuring 50 musicians will bring their original music to an eclectic mix of venues in the Fitzmaurice Street precinct, offering a blend of jazz, rap, blues, pop and indie rock.
Just as varied as the musical offerings will be the 12 different venues playing host to the performers.
Local musicians will entertain crowds in diverse locations including Cave BBQ, Kidsons Cycles, Thirsty Crow, Knights Meats, Romano’s Hotel, Thaigga and Cafe Sonder.
Curated by Wagga musician Damian Evans, a second Fitz Live will be held on Saturday, May 5.
Wagga City Council received a $20,000 grant from the NSW government, and Fitz Live has come from that.
Council’s cultural officer Tracie Miller said the students were a welcome addition to what was shaping up to be a great event.
The first event will kick off at Kidsons Cycles at 11am on Saturday, with a performance by Dane Kennedy.
