Youth events & FReeZA


Council runs many music and youth events in the shire each year. Why not join our Music in the Sticks (MITS) crew?

Music in the Sticks

Music in the Sticks (MITS) is for young people in the Macedon Ranges Shire aged 14 to 25 years with an interest in the music industry. It has been running for over 15 years and provides skills and experience in a range of areas such as:

  • event management
  • sound and lighting
  • photography and film
  • publicity and management
  • live and studio recording
  • sound production
  • hospitality.

The group meets on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month (except school and public holidays) at the Woodend Community Centre from 4.30pm-6pm. Food and drinks provided.

Youth camp

A youth camp will be held in early 2017 to help build skills and leadership across all of our youth programs. MITS members are encouraged to attend.
