The Sun Street Festival is back again with a massive line up appearing on two stages as part of this year's Youth Week.
Hosted by Sun Street Studios - with the help of Maitland headspace - the one-day festival specifically showcases young performers and community groups.
Organiser Lisa Allen said the music festival aimed to engage the city's young people on their level.
While the event is targeted for young people aged under 25, Ms Allen encouraged anyone interested to attend.
"All ages are welcome. It's about participation of young people so it's for youth by youth," she said.
The jampacked program will include a line-up of 18 acts and two DJs, who will be performing across three stages on the site.
The Wakakulang Aboriginal Dance Group will also perform but there will be plenty more to do with a photobooth, sensory tent, fitness corner with Body Beyond Bootcamp and facepainting.
There will also be stalls from ACON, Ability Links, Mai-Wel Group, Youth Off The Streets, Maitland Art Drop, Samaritan Foundation and Rutherford-Telarah Rotary.
In 2015, Sun Street Studios won the RYDON youth friendly business of the year.
The event will run from 4pm to 9pm on Wednesday at Sun Street Studios, located at 246 High Street.
All Youth Week events are free and are drug and alcohol free.
