The Gidgestock Music Festival came to life in 2015 as a result of a group of music enthusiasts wanting to run an event that would benefit the community. The first Gidgestock was a small, invite-only event to see how people would respond, and the community feedback was outstanding! A total of 14 acts performed for 280 enthusiastic fans, who gave rave reviews. $3,000 was donated to the Kalamunda Community Radio building fund, and the Gidgestock spirit was born.

With the success of this first event, we set out to help the community as much as possible. In 2016, we got in touch with some amazing sponsors who provided great prizes for our raffle – the highlight of which was the Zenith guitar. We opened up our doors to a larger audience of music lovers, making the event an even greater success resulting in a larger donation.

But we didn’t stop there. In 2017, we made substantial upgrades to the amphitheatre and built an extensive dancefloor. We received more applications from musicians, which helped us create an unforgettable music experience. We worked hard to get the word out about our festival and our worthy cause. The response from the community blew us away, with a huge number of people coming down and showing their support.

This year, we want to continue to grow even further. With your help, we believe that our generous spirits combined with our love of music can continue to create positive changes in the community. We are putting together an incredible line up of local musicians who are sure to get you up on your feet. We’ve responded to the feedback you’ve given us on previous years, to provide more facilities and make sure your Gidgestock experience is the best it can be.

The Gidgestock Experience is based on the Woodstock theme of peace, love and great music. All musicians donate their services for free, and together with our generous sponsors, enable this festival to donate all profits to worthy local causes. Come and join us for wonderful live music, campfires and dancing under the stars – be a part of the Gidgestock Experience and buy your tickets now!
