“Thank you for the great activities for the school holidays!
I find it so helpful to have activities during the week in the holidays as I still have to work full time and need low-cost activities or my children. Thank you for the great service you offer the young people in the area.”

YOUTH SPACE NEWS
BONDI BLITZ 2017
As part of Youth Week 2017 WAYS Youth Space presented the annual all ages, alcohol and drug free music event- Bondi Blitz. For the first time in Blitz history, we presented an eclectic mix of music which included a DJ set each from two young up and coming acts, Young dog new tricks and DJ Sol. Both busted out some awesome tunes which were very well received by the crowd. The bands who were also a treat, consisted of Arbourview, Geenie, Alexandra Younes, Shark Attack and Rusty Strings.
Sideshows were held at the fabulous Bucket List and included acts such as Sam Higginson, Alexandra Younes, LLc and Ethan Gillet.
All in all the day was blessed with sunshine and good vibes. In short it was a spectacular success. WAYS would like to thank our event sponsors and partners, we most certainly would not have done this without your help: Waverley Council, Woollahra Council, Easts Rugby, Exclusive DJ’s, Indent, Mobile stage truck, YDNT and National Youth Week.
Bondi Blitz is held once a year in youth week. If you are an an up and coming DJ or are in a band and would like the chance to showcase your talent, please call us at WAYS on 9365 2500 to find out how you can get involved.
