Check yourself, check your mates & check out services. The annual Check It Fest is set to be bigger and better.

Check it Fest is a free Gold Coast event, supported and coordinated by a range of local community organisations, with headspace Southport as the coordinator and principal sponsorship from the Queensland Mental Health Commission. Check It Fest is family friendly day aimed at young people 12–18 years.

Check it Fest this year introduces a new feature called Check my Talent—a school based music competition that will see musicians battling it out for some great prizes. The festival is more than just music, it includes plenty of opportunities to participate through arts activities, fun games, prizes and there will be a free BBQ for all.

This year Check It Fest welcomes Sheldon and Chang to the mainstage that will take the day to the next level. These guys are made famous from their success on this years The Voice.

Check It Fest promotes the following key messages:
- Check Yourself: It’s ok to ask for help or support if you’re having a hard time
- Check Your Mates: A good mate checks in with their friends to see if they are all good
- Check Out Services: There are free, youth friendly services and places on the Gold Coast if you or your mates need support

The day is about celebrating youth culture in a positive and supportive way—being a free festival, makes it inclusive and accessible to everyone, who may not be able to attend some of the bigger festivals in the region.
