Music and Sport Showing Young Australians the Good Life

Action Sports at the Good Life Future Music Festival

Flemington Racecourse Melbourne Australia - March 8, 2013

In a unique and frenetic mix of sport and music underage Australians from across the country hit the mosh pit and kicked some goals at Good Life Future Music Festival at Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne in March this year.

It was an event that celebrated everything that is great about Australia - its youth, sport and love of diverse groups coming together to 'rock it out' in a safe and respectful environment.

Andrew Vernes spokesperson for Action Sports, the company running the sport activations during the festival, acknowledged the importance of providing young people with meaningful and exciting opportunities to join others at events that promote inclusion, active living and positive values.

"This was the first opportunity for Action Sports to become involved with the Good Life Festival and I must admit we were blown away by the willingness of young people to want to enjoy everything that the day had to offer. 20,000 kids enjoying music and sport - it doesn't get much better than that in Australia that's for sure", he said.

Boasting an impressive lineup that included Skrillex, Steve Angello, Tinie Tempah Ruby Rose, Havana Brown and the Stafford Brothers featuring Timmy Trumpet and PSY with 'Gangnam Style', the music on offer set off an energetic and vibrant crowd who jumped into the Action Street Arena and MSF Basketball court to hammer in some goals and lob some three pointers.

Ralph Barba, filming for Four Diegos Media on the day (watch vidcast here ) applauded the organisers and Action Sports for investing in Australian youth in such an unique and positive way.

"Four Diegos Media has been involved with youth events in schools and in the community for over 10 years and Good Life Festival - its organisation, the values it promotes, the behaviour of 20,000 underage youth and the quality of sport and music on show on the day - really delivered outcomes that help build stronger communities and aspiration in our youth. Congrats to Actions Sports and Good Life Future Music festival organisers for a tremendous event.", he said.
