Heaps Decent is a non profit charity providing music production training, resources and opportunities for underprivileged and marginalised young people.
Heaps Decent is driven by the belief that by providing support and positive engagement with creativity, barriers and obstacles to participation can be overcome and in doing so a new and uniquemusic scent will be uncovered. Along the way, young people traditionally difficult to engage are being inspired to reconnect with education, community and their own agency.
Fuzzy have been supporting Heaps Decent through cash donations, in kind administration support as well as partnering the Cash for Comp scheme since 2008. Over the last two years Heaps Decent has been able to raise over $100,000 by asking Fuzzy Guest ticket holders to donate at the gate to Fuzzy Festivals and events. This funding has allowed the organsiation to grow at an exponential rate providing workshops to more than five times thenumbers of young people pre-Fuzzy.
Fuzzy Artists also get the opportunity to participate in Heaps Decent workshops held in schools, juvenile justice centres and community centres across Australia. To date guest artists have included Diplo, A-Trak, M.I.A. , AC Slater, Mumdance, Sinden, Brodinski, DJ Mehdi, Jesse Rose, The Cool Kids, Zombie Disco Squad, Aloe Blacc, Maya Jupiter, Aeroplane, 12th Planet, Lady Soverign and more.

Parklife is asking our customers to support the Centennial Parklands Foundation by making a $1.95 donation when you purchase your ticket.
Centennial Parklands is over 120 years old but the challenges facing it mean that without your support it won't continue to exist as we know it today. Many of the 16,000 trees in Centennial Parklands are approaching the end of their life span. Over 60% of the beautiful trees in the Parklands will need to be replaced over the next forty years.
For every $1000 raised Centennial Parklands Foundation will plant one new tree - we are hoping that the patrons of Parklife this year can help a whole grove of trees be planted. Help us plant a Parklife forest!
