The Mullum Music Festival has announced the winners of the 2017 Youth Mentorship Program.

“The winning young artists from each category are selected by their mentors. They each get a rehearsal session with their mentor, a 20-minute performance slot at the festival with their mentor backstage, the opportunity to watch their mentor perform from backstage and a weekend pass to the festival. Youth Mentorship performances are always a festival highlight.
