Resilience Festival 2018

$9,950 of $53,600 goal

Raised by 60 people in 18 months

Firstly thank you for taking the time to look at this page.

We are a group of friends wanting to organize a registered charity festival in October 2018 in the regional town of Lithgow two hours west of Sydney in NSW.

Why Lithgow?

In the month of February we lost two great young men to suicide four days apart and at this time in the region there are minimal services available for people and quite frankly we believe that it's not good enough.

What's our vision?

What we invision is a festival that can provide information for mental illness and suicide prevention, along with preventative maintenance for mental health involving all local clubs and hobbies showing what is available in the local area and also have live music showcasing Australian talent of many genres.

We want to give back to our community as well as bring it closer together through this time and help push services to become available in the area.
The idea of this page is just to cover costs, any additional money raised will all be donated to a charity which will be confirmed closer to the date.

The price breakdown is as follows
Invoices can be provided if a business or group care to donate and wish to claim a tax benifit.

Including lighting, sound, barrier and all staff needed

Tony Luchetti sports ground
Including deposit and all ground facilities.


Artists and bands will only be paid for travel and accommodation.

If you think that this is a great cause and you would like to help or you would like to ask more questions before donating please feel free to get in contact with us.

Hi guys,

Once again thank you for taking the time to donate to our cause.
We are currently planning our festival which is now only a year out and starting to branch out to other services to make sure we have the best information available on the day.

We have also recently enlisted the help of a professional event organiser to help guide us in the right direction, some of the festivals he has worked on include:

Guns n Roses 2017 tour
Good Vibrations
V fest

We have quite a number of different things all happening at once, and we will update you all again soon!

Thank you for your generosity.
