“Gig for Gaza” will run from 3pm to 10pm and feature a diverse lineup of performers, including Asbjorn Westerheim (fractal folk), Toshi Sakamoto (Japanese folk), JC (funkified), Tropical Funk Merchant and The Brazilian Drummers (Latin and funk), DJ Vix (hip hop and scratch), Diggis (hip hop), Todd Skipper (UK garage), and Dymatix (dubstep, drum and bass).

The event will also include a "Welcome to Country" ceremony by Dennis Hunter and speeches by Palestinians living locally, which will provide insightful perspectives and foster a sense of community and solidarity. 

There will be petitions available for signing to support the cause.

Recently, Dr Adrian Conner held a GazaMed fundraiser at the Mareeba International Club, raising over $37,500 for PANZMA (Palestinian Australian New Zealand Medical Association)

Tickets for the Gaza Gig are $15 for concessions, $20 for individuals, and $35 for families, with a 15% discount available for early bird purchases. 

All proceeds from the event will be donated to aid efforts in Gaza. Tickets can be purchased at
