About 200 teenagers and a smattering of mums and dads filled Albion Park’s Centenary Hall on Saturday evening to see almost a dozen young bands hit the stage, many of them for the first time.

Cr Rankin said the ‘‘awesome’’ youth festival aimed to give teenagers who were interested in music a chance to showcase their talents.

‘‘Not all kids are into sport,’’ he said. ‘‘Next year we would like to expand it. ‘‘We had to knock back a couple of bands because we just couldn’t fit them on the day, so what we want to do is expand it and maybe get bands from Wollongong and bands from Kiama.’’

He is already eyeing up options for bigger venues like the Croome Rd stadium and Albion Park Showground for 2013.
