Backstage Pass gave 120+ primary and secondary students an amazing opportunity to learn from, and hone their musical skills with, some of Australia's leading music artists including Rai Thistlethwayte, Erana Clark and Finabah.

Under the leadership of Creative Director, John Foreman, and the guidance of 20 mentors the students created and performed their own work on the Sydney FIFA Fan Festâ„¢ stage on Sunday 20 June 2010, together with Finabah, Jefferson and Microwave Jenny.
