CanTeen 'Side of Stage' Initiative Launches Nationally

Aussie favourites Hilltop Hoods have launched a new national initiative led by CanTeen. The 'Side of Stage' initiative will offer free access to live gigs, festivals and performances to young people impacted by cancer.

Approximately 23,000 young Australians between the ages of 12-25 are impacted by cancer every year. This number includes those dealing with having cancer themselves, or those affected by friends, parents, or siblings having cancer, or those who have lost a loved one from the disease.

"Cancer is something that affects us all at some point in our lives, whether a personal struggle or someone close to us. We seek to empower and give strength to the suffering", said Hilltop Hoods of the initiative.

While the initiative is spearheaded by the Hilltop Hoods, there are many others who have shown their support, with organisations such as Chugg Entertainment, Cattleyard Promotions, Yours and Owls, Universal Music Australia, and Moshtix all taking part.

A number of artists have also signed on as ambassadors for the initiative, including Stella Donnelly, Great Gable, Kingswood, Montaigne, Stonefield, and Thundamentals.
