Kids Take Over │DJ Skool


Armed with headphones and a fully setup DJ booth, learn to create your own party playlist, mixed to the rhythms of your choice.

It’s DJ Skool with DJ Fletcher.

Then on Sunday 18 April, you’ll have the chance to perform on the HOTA Outdoor Stage to all your fans, setting the tone for our Kids Take Over Mini Music Festival – the same stage where singers like Jimmy Barnes, Jessica Mauboy, Sheppard, Amy Shark, Tim Minchin and Nick Cave play – before singers Lucas Proudfoot and Justine Clarke take the stage.

Presented by HOTA, Home of the Arts

What’s for lunch?

Stop by the Lawn Bar or the HOTA Café to stay fuelled for your Kids Take Over adventures. We’ve got caffeine for those who want – or need – it, and snacks and lunch available for purchase.

Arriving onsite for workshops

When you arrive for Kids Take Over, please head to the Café Terrace at least ten minutes before your event starts where you’ll be asked to register the details of everyone in your group (all children and their guardians) for contact tracing. HOTA Event Staff will escort your group to the location of your workshop or event.

Keeping you safe

It is incredibly important to us that you have a safe experience when you come to HOTA. We have a COVID Safe plan which you can read on our FAQs page and there are some conditions of entry which you should read before purchasing a ticket or attending an event at HOTA.
