PERTH hip-hop outfit Downsyde will headline a free concert in Mirrabooka.

Booka Beats Fest will feature a line-up of WA hip-hop and rap artists to celebrate Youth Week.

Playing alongside Downsyde at the April 18 event will be Hyclass, DJ Rivaboi and T$oko.

The concert is a collaboration between the cities of Stirling and Wanneroo, and Drug Aware.

Stirling Mayor Mark Irwin said it was an alcohol, drug and smoke-free event.

“This is a great opportunity for young people across the City to celebrate Youth Week, catch up with friends and have fun in a safe environment,” he said.

“It’s also a great way for us to provide important information to our younger community members through the Stirling Local Drug Action Team, who work to promote community connections and positive mental health in young men and women.”

Booka Beats is aimed at 12 to 25-year-olds but is open to the whole community and will have food and non-alcoholic drinks for sale. It will be held at Mirrabooka Regional Space from 3pm to 7.30pm.
