Schoolies 2020 Update And Competition


The Schoolies Festival at Victor Harbor has been cancelled…

but that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate!

Celebrate @ home with Fresh FM’s Home Schoolies ON AIR TAKEOVER!

This year you can party at home or head away with a few friends (responsibly and COVID safe of course). And Fresh 92.7 are coming to the party!

On Saturday 21 November Fresh 92.7 will dedicate their airwaves to the class of 2020. From 12noon to 8.00pm Schoolies will take over Fresh with requests, party shout-outs and a countdown of the top 25 songs as voted by you, our school leavers.

Not a regular Fresh listener? Tune in! Fresh will be playing all your favourite party anthems from over two decades on the airwaves.

Register your party in the lead up for your chance to win some insane prizes that will take your celebration to the next level (we’re thinking a lot of food!).

Entries close 5.00pm Thursday 12 November and winners will be announced during Brekky with Loz & Thomo, Friday 13 November.

Guidelines For Planning A Schoolies Celebration

How many people can I have at my party?

The number of people you can party with kinda depends on where you have it.
Here’s a guide:

• At your house – up to 50 people
• At rented accommodation, such as an Airbnb – 1 person per bed + 6 guests
• At a caravan park – 6 people per site + 6 guests

Remember, you can get fined if you exceed these limits, so plan accordingly.
