ABOUT 1500 “prisoners of society” stamped their feet in approval at Warrnambool Stadium on Saturday night as headline act The Living End took to the stage.

The FReeZA event for young people was a hit, organisers said.

Warrnambool City Council youth development officer Adrian Hunter said a crowd of about 1500 came to hear Charred, The Gestalt Effect, The Dirty Rugs and headline act The Living End.

The chart-topping Australian band The Living End is responsible for hits including All Torn Down, Second Solution and Prisoner of Society.

“It’s probably more than we expected,” Mr Hunter said while cleaning the stadium yesterday.

“There were young kids jumping and with that amount of people it was a fairly good night.”
