In 2023, SYN celebrates 20 years of broadcasting by and for young people in Melbourne/Naarm… and now we’re taking the party out of the studio!

This month, SYN will take over Chapel Off Chapel with an all-ages, alcohol, smoke and drug-free day party, supported by the Victorian Government and the CBAA through the On The Road Again initiative.

SYNers In The Chapel will be held on Sunday, February 26th from 2:30pm – 7:00pm, with a full-venue takeover featuring a lineup of young, local artists. Art-punk party-starters Gut Health, emotional electronic besties Huntly, the lush and soulful Kee’ahn, and magnetic hip hop artist Yung Shogun will bring the energy in the main bandroom. Plus, local selectors Mendoza and Mon Franco will be laying down atmospheric grooves in the foyer throughout the day

Need a little breather from the party? Get some sunlight in the courtyard, or unwind in the Chapel’s mezzanine, a dedicated, chill break-out zone.

Proceeds from this event will support SYN, Melbourne’s youth community radio station, and our mission to provide accessible, tailored media and training opportunities to young people.

SYNers In The Chapel is a fundraising event for our station as part of our 20 year anniversary in 2023. Supported by the Victorian Government and CBAA as part of On The Road Again, bringing live music back across Victoria. Developed by Amrap, this initiative connects community radio’s dedicated and diverse audiences with new live music experiences in Melbourne!

Minister for Creative Industries Steve Dimopoulos said: “On The Road Again is bringing back live music across the state, helping musicians get back on stage where they belong and providing music fans of all ages with fantastic events.”

“We’re proud to support SYNers In The Chapel because it gives people of all ages the opportunity to enjoy local bands and artists – and is another example why Melbourne is Australia’s live music capital.”
