The excitement and energy of World Youth Day will be felt in Adelaide next year when the Archdiocese hosts its own WYD festival featuring more than 35 acts and speakers from Australia and around the world.

Taking into account health and safety concerns and also the high costs involved, the Archdiocese decided last year that it would not host a pilgrimage to the triennial event being held in Panama in January.

Instead the Catholic Office for Youth and Young Adults with the support of an organising committee has been busy finalising plans for a WYD event in Adelaide over the Australia Day long weekend, which will correspond with WYD activities in Central America.

Tipped to be the biggest diocesan youth event since the Double M Festival in 2010, organisers are expecting about 1000 local young people to attend.
