ON THE 20-22 SEPTEMBER 2019 THE SET FREE TEAM WILL BE HOSTING IT’S TENTH ANNUAL YOUTH FESTIVAL. WE HAVE GOT SOME GREAT THINGS IN STORE AND YOU BETTER BELIEVE THAT WE ARE GOING HARD THIS YEAR WITH SOME OF THE BEST LINEUPS, ACTIVITIES, AND MUSIC YOU’VE SEEN.
Set Free is a Catholic Youth Festival for teens in Year 10-13. This festival seeks to provide young people, especially those who have limited involvement with the Catholic Church, with an opportunity to encounter Christ. There is great pride on behalf of the planning team in delivering phenomenal speakers and quality music in an atmosphere that is both professional and engaging.
PHENOMENAL SPEAKERS - Set Free has a long standing reputation of booking the best speakers from all over the world, this year our main speakers will be announced upon the opening of registration on 1 June and a full line-up to follow shortly after.
COMMUNITY-BASED ATMOSPHERE - Set Free is the best opportunity for you to meet young people just like yourself and to be plugged into amazing community from all over Aotearoa. Catholic, non-Catholics, all-in for Jesus, or questioning God’s existence, this is the place for you. Bring a mate or make a new one, there’s always good vibes to spare!
QUALITY MUSIC - Music is such a huge part of the Set Free experience, so we book the best praise bands to bring you quality music throughout the festival. This year we are welcoming back the Christchurch Worship Band!
GOOD FOOD- Food plays a central role in most cultures and as Catholics, meals are the core of our Christian community. Set Free has an incredible catering team that provides home cooked tea and breakfasts, and organizes the best of best for catered dinners. If we haven’t sold you on anything else, come for the food. #noregerts
AUTHENTIC LIVE-IN FESTIVAL - With year ten we are getting major upgrades in the housing department. Set Free is an authentic live-in festival and what has traditionally been marae-style accommodation is now fantastic camp bunks & dormitories.
Everyone knows one of the best parts about Set Free is the mates you make and the mates you bring. This year, why not get some perks for coming with friends?
Why Group Rego? MATES. RATES. TRANSPORT. What’s not to love? Oh yeah…and early access
What’s the cost? Group Rego’s are discounted with $20 off of your standard Solo Rego, so that means you pay only $125 bucks.
How do I get to Finlay Park? With Group Rego transport is included from Hamilton, Tauranga, and Gisborne, just pick which bus you need on your rego form.
What’s this about Early Access? Standard Solo Rego opens 29 July but if you register with a group, you get access to registration three weeks early. That’s a major perk with only 150 spots up for grabs.
There’s not a group near me, can my mates and I make a group? HECK YES. If there’s no groups near by to go with you can start a group with as little as five mates and a group leader, then you just need to email Jil at firstname.lastname@example.org. Group leaders must be 18 or over and may be eligible to receive sponsorship.
How do I Register? Registration is easy! Just tag on the button “Find a Group” and give a shout out to the group leader. They’ll take your name and give you a promo code to unlock your groups pricing. Then register as normal and be on the lookout for some detailed info from your group leader closer to the weekend.
