Fresh Entertainment (FReeZA)

FReeZA Frankston is an innovative youth development program that provides opportunities for young people to enjoy all ages live events that are affordable, accessible, drug, alcohol and smoke-free in supervised and safe venues.

Funding from Frankston City Council and FReeZA grants provided by the Victorian Government give young people the opportunity to become part of a FReeZA committee. The Frankston based FReeZA program is called ‘Fresh Entertainment’.

For over 15 years, the Fresh Entertainment team has planned, organised and run all sorts of live events such as Open Mic Nights, Push Start Battle of Bands, markets, variety shows, movie nights, Skim and Skate competitions, as well as a dedicated Emerging Artist stage at Frankston’s Waterfront Festival. All programs and projects are facilitated and supported by Youth Workers.
