APPROACHING its third instalment within weeks, the Dirtee Disco event in Grafton has grown to be much more than your average school dance party or any other typical fundraiser.

The event - to be held at the Grafton High School MPC on Friday, December 14 - features some of Australia's top dance acts including Australia's Got Talent 2011 grand finalists Instant Bun and three-time winner of the Hip Hop Platform Festival, Skill@Will, the bar has been set for youth events in the Clarence Valley.

Hip hop/rap group Mid North Collaboration will also take to the stage where they will perform several tracks including Free As a Bird which stayed in the top 20 of the Triple J Unearthed Hip Hop Charts until recently - peaking at number three.

DJs will spin their decks across two stages to ensure all tastes are catered for. DJs include Simon Says, Antz, Something Chronic and "DJ Steve".

Further good vibes will be provided by event host Brad Harrison (aka BBoy Yogi) - a key member of Skill@Will.

With fire-twirling by Hip-Hop DownUnder, free UV body painting and a free jumping castle - fun will be near impossible to avoid.

In homage to Party Rock-craze creators LMFAO (Loving My Friends And Others), Dirtee Disco 3 is asking all guests to dress up in sunglass frames, Afro wigs, shuffle shoes and animal print attire.

Add to this a mind-blowing laser light show by Coffs Harbour's Steve Mitchell (DJ Steve), the Dirtee Disco team can truly lay claim to the title "Biggest Under-18s Event in The Valley".

Aside from the mountains of fun on offer, the event also has a big heart - all profits from the night will go to the national depression and anxiety initiative beyondblue.

The event is the brainchild of young Grafton dance aficionado Jeremy Jablonski.

Dirty Disco began in 2010 as a way for Jeremy to simultaneously express his and his friends' love of dance, give the kids of Grafton a cool night out, lift the profile of his dance academy Hip Hop DownUnder and raise funds.

Jeremy has experienced mental illness and feels strongly about breaking down the barriers surrounding mental health issues - especially in youth

Six security guards, two police officers, Street Cruize youth workers and the Dirtee Disco team will ensure the event remains safe and drugs-and-alcohol-free.

Dirtee Disco 3 is a dance party for ages 13-17, and will be held at the Grafton High School MPC (Multi-Purpose Centre) on December 14, from 7-10pm. No pass outs will be issued.

Tickets are available from: Buckley's Music Grafton, or Out of the Box Cafe, Market Square. $15 Pre-Sale, $20 @ the door.

The tickets price also includes one free sausage sandwich, a glow stick and an IScream ice-cream with further goodies available for paying customers.
