Drug Aware Fools Festival

The Drug Aware Fools Festival is back for another mammoth year and is bringing with it some of Australia's most exciting emerging artists. 

Heading up the event is Arnhem Land rapper Baker Boy who made his mark on the 2017 Triple J Hottest 100 by landing at No.17 and No.76.

The 21-year old rapper, dancer and activist features a mixture of English and Yolgnu Matha language in his songs and will be joined by another Triple J regular, 17-year old producer and rapper Arno Faraji.

Faraji hails from Perth and is the first hip hop artist to win the Unearthed High competition.

Joining the line-up on the day is Pow!Negro, Sly Withers as well as Dallas Woods, Zenwire and Branzian.

Fools Fest will also feature a silent disco with six DJs, live art battle, skate demos, dodgeball, photo booth, flash zombie mob and chill out spaces such as the Luau and Zen Zone. 

The drug and alcohol free event is proudly supported by Rio Tinto, LotteryWest and Healthway.
