Ever wanted to learn an instrument, form a band and write a song? At Rock Camp, you’ll form a band, learn an instrument (bass, guitar, vocals, drums or electronic music), watch live music performances from local and interstate acts, participate in creative workshops (like making zines and screen printing band t-shirts) and write an original song to be performed at the end of the week. Applications now open!

No music experience necessary!
