From the team behind Coastal Jam and Sundancer Festival, UNO Presents announces one day mental health charity event, State Of Mind.
For years now, the team at UNO Presents has been bringing some of the finest names in the live and electronic music movement as well as festival-level productions to regional cities.
Now they’re back with State of Mind, a fundraiser music festival event with the goal to raise awareness, destigmatise, drive conversation and raise funds for mental health support and intervention in Australia.
Keep up with the latest music news, festivals, interviews and reviews here.
Taking over the iconic Torquay Hotel on Friday, November 25, the event will welcome electro-pop legend Boo Seeka as event headliner.
Gold Coast-based Boo Seeka has become a staple of the Australian live scene. Delivering a combination of pulsating sounds that bed down layered textures of electronic bass, percussive beats and smooth synths, Boo Seeka has earned himself a reputation as one of the country’s funnest live acts, with incomparable energy making him a must-see every time he comes around.
Alongside the massive headliner, State of Mind will feature Eva, House Cat, Meetwally, Soul Shakin’ and DJ Swella, bringing the beats to the loved beachside town, making sure punters are partying well into the night.
Taking cues from UNO Presents’ flagship project Coastal Jam, with world-class music acts, mental health and wellbeing remain at the festival’s heart, bringing the music community together to normalise conversations around it while raising important funds to go to some of the nation’s leading mental health support organisation, as well as local initiatives. It’s no secret that mental health is a huge issue among today’s youth more than ever with the world quickly transitioning online – connecting with each other has never been more important.
The festival’s goal is to support the narrative of creating positive connections, strengthening relationships, and being a catalyst for people to open up to their loved ones/professionals to start that difficult conversation about mental health if they’re suffering in silence.
All profits of State of Mind’s door sales will be donated to Beyond Blue (40%), lifeline (40%) and Feed Me Bellarine (20%).
