ABC is pleased to announce that all 10 episodes of the empowering and entertaining, drama series, Turn Up The Volume, will drop on ABC iview on Friday March 24th at 7am, with the first episode airing on ABC ME at 6pm.
Showcasing the next generation of young Australian talent, Turn Up The Volume follows a group of female and gender non-conforming teenagers as they come together at music camp and form a rock band. When Vivi (Riya Mandrawa), Ginger (Elaine King), Breeze (Mira Russo), Hex (Ezra James) and Jam (Ayiana Ncube) turn up to their first day at music camp, they’re a real mix of disillusioned, wildly enthusiastic and everything in between. But as this group of young musicians get to know each other, they discover the strength to define themselves on their own terms and find belonging in the embrace of a new community.
Starring alongside the impressive line-up of new talent are some well-known faces including Justine Clarke, Michala Banas, Kaiya Jones and Spencer McLaren.
Inspired by the coming-of-age documentary No Time For Quiet which showcases the first Girls Rock! Camp in Melbourne, Turn Up The Volume explores the power of music, friendship, and creativity as forces of transformation and connection.
