Held in an idyllic rural setting on the Gaza Estate between Sevenoaks and Tunbridge Wells, Kent, Gazastock has raised over £200,000 for Hospice in the Weald, the festival’s chosen charity and the organisation that cared for John Gaster, the much loved and sorely-missed local musician to whose memory Gazastock is dedicated. Since 2012 the Gazastock has also been supporting the Pickering Cancer Centre in Tunbridge Wells.
The next festival, due to be held on the first weekend in July 2015, will see performances by upwards of 20 bands, duos and solo artists in a packed schedule that embraces a diverse musical spectrum.
The performers, all of whom give of their time and talents for free, are drawn principally from the local area. Pub-band stalwarts and hoary old session players line-up alongside emerging young original talent striving to make their name on the UK music scene.
The growing band of performers has now been joined by a growing band of commercial traders who, together with the many food and drink operators, support the overall fund-raising effort, both financially and materially.
Among the leading corporate supporters are Gaza Timber, the festival’s founding host and principal benefactor, support also comes in the form of donated products, especially music-related, for the charity auction that takes place on the main stages during the festival. Gazastock also raises funds through the sale of branded promotional merchandise, including souvenir programmes, T-shirts, and car stickers.
