Naasstock IEM Music Festival was established to raise funds for the Kids Cancer Centre at Sydney Children’s Hospital Randwick.
In 2005, the Curtis family lost their daughter, Erin, to Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia, when she was just 15. Her parents, Kelvin and Mandy, were looking for a way to make a difference. In 2007, Kelvin and Mandy learnt that the Leukaemia Foundation was in need of support, which is when they used their love of music and their desire to create a ‘Woodstock’-like festival in their home town of Naas Valley.
The first Naasstock Festival raised $7,000 and Kelvin and Mandy’s festival has continued to raise money to fight children’s cancer and blood diseases ever since. In 2012, the event was renames Naasstock IEM, which stands for In Erin’s Memory. The 2015 Naasstock IEM raised over $140,000 for the Kids Cancer Centre at Sydney Children’s Hospital Randwick.
Screenmakers proudly supported Naasstock IEM Music Festival in 2015 by donating event banners for the festival.
