After an amazing debut in 2018, Perth's only festival for High School students, Sound On is back and better than ever.

Presented by Murdoch University, the festival combines music with immersive and innovative experiences to encourage free thinking, while guiding teenagers towards unlocking life's potential after high school, something that Murdoch University has been synonymous with since the 1970s.

Peking Duk, Ruel, G Flip, Stevan, FlexMami and Bexx will bring their incredible musical talents to the Perth Arena on Saturday 21 September, with the festivities commencing at 2pm for a whole day of fun and inspiration.

Beyond the main stage, immersive experiences from The Indigo Project will offer thousands of Australia’s future generation an engaging opportunity to think freely and dream bigger during a time of anticipated change.

Perth's audience have the chance to learn from their idols in the intimate panel Dream Big - seeing the festival’s headliners like Peking Duk, Ruel and G Flip share their strategies for what it takes to chase your dreams, how to rise up after setbacks and how to be authentically yourself.

Visualising your dreams

This will be followed by The Future Beats Experience which is all about being guided into visualising your dreams for the future, set to contemporary beats turned up loud.

Alongside feel-good offerings, including the Murdoch University video games room, photo-booths, silent disco, pet therapy, chill out area, communal art and a glitter and braid bar, Sound On Festival is a teenager’s one-stop shop for exploring their passions, and having the chance to create new friendships and connections with their peers over the six plus hours of the event.

Murdoch University Director Marketing and Communications Neil Cullingford, said: “Over the last 40 years, Murdoch has fostered free thinking in our students, and Sound On Festival provides us with an opportunity to bring this way of thinking to life, which is really important as Perth's High School students consider their next steps following High School.

As a university that strives for creativity across all of our courses, Sound On Festival also gives our current students the chance to experience the creative elements of a festival from photography, to sound, to design.

“Murdoch University is also a place for students to feel like they belong, and we are aiming to create this same feeling of connection and community at this event. We’re very proud to deliver Sound On Festival to Perth, and get young people excited about their futures."

Tickets for Sound On will cost $49.95 + booking fee and are available now from Ticketek.
