Plan ahead for Schoolies Festival

Schoolies Festival™ 2020 Update

Encounter Youth would like to advise that the Schoolies Festival™ 2020 has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to this cancellation, Encounter Youth will directly contact all ticket holders and issue a full refund within 14 days.

Following the decision made today, 18 September 2020, we still want to encourage young people to celebrate safely. For 21 years, we have supported young people in celebrating the conclusion of Year 12.

2020 will be no different. We will still be present in support of our Year 12s.

From here, we encourage all Year 12s organising an alternate end-of-year celebration, those who attend a celebration or parents who want to support them, to register their celebration by completing the survey we will send you. We will utilise this information to provide planning and support where possible to the Class of 2020.

We thank you for your patience and understanding. Should you have questions about Schoolies Festival™, we encourage you to contact us at
