Now celebrating its 32nd year!
Rock Eisteddfod Challenge® events are produced by the Rock Eisteddfod Challenge® Foundation, a not for profit organisation. The event is a unique and exciting opportunity for schools to take part in a dance, drama and design spectacular where the students are the stars. Each year, the events are professionally staged in some of Australia’s top entertainment venues.
As part of the Global Rock Challenge™, nearly 300 Australian schools and 25,000 students compete in Rock Eisteddfod Challenge® and J Rock™ shows across Australia.
How does it work?
Teams as small as 20 or as large as 142 students plan an eight-minute performance based on a theme of their choice and set it to contemporary commercially available music. Students, teachers and entire communities work together over a period of months planning and rehearsing, before competing against other schools at events in a 100% drug and alcohol free environment.
