About this event

Gidgestock Music Festival returns for its 7th year this October, bringing some of the best local music Perth has to offer to the beautiful hills of Gidgegannup, for this family-friendly, fund-raising festival, just 45 minutes from Perth city.

Experience a natural amphitheatre bush setting, a total of 22 live bands, campfires, rustic camping and dancing under the stars. Wake up to the call of the kookaburras and enjoy great fellowship and great music and, on Sunday morning, a hearty cooked breakfast!

All of the musicians/bands donate their time, as do the stage crew and a group of fabulous volunteers who, together with our generous Sponsors, make the event possible. The venue too is donated by our wonderful hosts, Steve & Jo Mitcham, who generously open the gates of their beautiful 50 acre property for the festival weekend.

All profits from the Gidgestock Music Festival are donated to the West and East Gidgegannup Volunteer Fire Services and the Leukaemia Foundation.

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 12 midday

What should I do if I want to camp?

Campsites are available if you want to join us for one or two nights under the stars – it is rustic – with portable toilets only and no shower facilities, so come prepared!

Once these spaces are full, there are smaller spaces available but your car will need to be parked separately. Please bring your tent, sleeping bags, swags etc.

A small number of Caravan and Camper Trailer sites are available, to make sure of a spot you must inform the organisers. Please note that a 4WD is needed to bring a caravan due to the uneven surface and slope of the venue.
