Schools Tour

In the week leading up to FEMF2016, two of our amazing artists, Tasman Jude and Germein Sisters, will be joining us to do a schools tour.

Working in partnership with a number of Youth Groups, we're aiming to visit as many schools as possible.

We know that there are hundreds of young people who can't make it to the festival itself, so this is our way of taking a bit of the festival to them.

If you're interested in having the tour come to your school, connect with us on Facebook, shoot us an e-mail, or give us a call at the CYC Ministries office (03) 9801 4588.


Speakers

We're thrilled to have a great range of speakers at Forest Edge Music Festival 2016. In addition to the artists and bands, there will be a number of workshops across the weekend, as well as the church service on the Sunday morning.

Josiah Conner

A big part of FEMF is the church service on the Sunday morning, and we're pleased to have Josiah Conner as our guest speaker for 2016. Josiah is the Youth Pastor of CityLife Church. CityLife Church is based in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne but has multiple locations across Melbourne. He loves good coffee, basketball, surfing and talking about Jesus.

Festival Highlights

There is much more to the festival than just the music...

The Village

The Village is the central hub of the festival. With the focal point of the Village Stage, there are also a number of stall holders and food vendors. It is also the location of the FEMF Store; the place to satisfy all your festival and band merch desires.

FEMF Has Talent

A highlight of the festival every year is our annual FEMF Has Talent. This competition is open to all the Youth Groups attending to enter either solo or group acts. The winning act from FEMF Has Talent will get to perform on the LightFM MainStage on the Sunday night.

Youth Group Sports Comp

Youth Groups may also enter teams into our annual sports competition. This has proved very popular every year, and we have something special in store for 2016 - More details soon!

Activities

Whilst listening to music 24/7 might be some people's cup of tea, we know that some may want to cram more into their day. FEMF2016 will have a number of activities on offer from high action through to quiet and creative.

Church

A big part of FEMF is the church service on the Sunday morning, and we're pleased to have Josiah Conner as our guest speaker for 2016. Along with a time of worship with music provided by a variety of festival artists, this is a great time for us all to come together on the Sunday morning.

Reflection/Prayer

Forest Edge is a great place to step back from the hectic nature of life and reflect. We're being very intentional about FEMF2016, to make sure that away from the activiy and noise, we create spaces for conversations, reflection and prayer. Spaces for people to explore questions of faith. More info to come...
