Fresh Underage Music Festival has been created for underage teenagers in Perth.
Fresh UMF provides underage teenagers with a safe and controlled environment. The idea was created, as teenagers do not have many places to go with their peers to dance and enjoy music, apart from unsupervised house parties, under ground parties or jumping the fences of +18 licensed Music Festivals.
Fresh Underage Music Festival will showcase Artists from across the country and world allowing the teenagers to listen to enjoy live music in an environment governed by Police Officers, Security Officers, High School Teachers and Red Frog Staff.
Fresh UMF provides a safe and fun environemnt and parents have peace of mind.
Getting there safely
It is very important to us that all teenagers arrive at the Festival safely, so we’ve implemented a number of direct ways from home to inside the Festival.
Fresh Underage Music Festival management have considered various ways teenagers can leave the safety of their house and arrive at the Music Festival in a reliable and safe way. The secure transportation systems we manage to design and implement include:
- Parent Drop Off system inside the Claremont Showgrounds
- Transperth Trains directly to Claremont Showground Train Station
- Transperth Buses directly to the Main Gate
- Uber and Taxi Drop Off system inside the Claremont Showgrounds
- Party Bus Pick Up Zones to drop off inside the Claremont Showgrounds
The Parent Drop-Off System is a safe and secure way to ensure teenagers arrive at the Music Festival safely.
Parents can enter the Claremont Showgrounds through Gate 6 on Graylands Road, passing a Security check point and directed to the North Gate Entry to the Music Festival. Parents will be met by friendly Secuirty, Venue Personnel, Teachers and Police Officers.
There is a two metre walk from the parent drop off zone to the entry point of the Music Festival.
Parents can watch their child enter throiugh the Security and Ticketing Check Point into the Music Festival. Parents then leave via Gate 6A onto Graylands Road.
