The Gidgestock Music Festival is a family-friendly music festival in the hills of Gidgegannup at 64 Treechange Rise from Friday 8 October 6pm to Sunday 10 October 2pm AWST. What lies beneath this entertaining event is a much-needed fundraiser for local charities, so be sure to show your support and be their local hero. Get your tickets here.
Gates open noon on Friday, so come early to secure a fabulous spot and enjoy the atmosphere. Music from 6pm – 10pm on Friday, on Saturday from 10am – until midnight and on Sunday from 8am until the festival closes at 2pm.
In its sixth year and just 45 minutes from Perth city, you'll find some of the best local music Perth has to offer. The natural amphitheatre bush setting will be an experience in itself, not to mention a total of 24 live bands, campfires, rustic camping and dancing under the stars. The alarm of the wild, the kookaburras, will give you a wakeup call so you can start a day of enjoyment all over again in a friendly environment, great music and a hearty cooked Sunday breakfast.
You'll be surprised to know that all the musicians/bands donate their time as do the stage crew and a group of fab volunteers, and generous sponsors who make this event possible. Even the venue is donated by Steve & Jo Mitcham, the generous hosts who open the gates to their beautiful 50 acre property for the festival weekend. All profits will be donated to the West Gidgegannup Volunteer Fire Service, the Leukaemia Foundation and Cahoots, so do come along and be supportive and generous towards these worthy causes.
