About

Croxley's longest-day music festival, established 2016.

Gonkstock is a one-day garden festival, with live local music and £1 beers, running into the long summer nights of late June.


History

Gonkstock was established in summer of 2016 by the unemployed duo of Eddie and Matt as an excuse to make t-shirts.

The debut festival - GONKSTOCK '94 - took place on 22nd July 2016, and was a moderately successful affair, albeit ill-attended. Activities included a halloumi barbecue and board games.

GONKSTOCK '95 took place on the Glastonbury weekend of 2017, from 4pm til late on Saturday 24th June. The line-up included This Good Doggo, Fluid Love, and MIDI,
and was attended by a peak crowd of 36 friends and family.

2018 saw GONKSTOCK '96 take Croxley respectably by storm, on the long hot summer night of Saturday 30th June, with bands including Fluid Love, Ronnie Maurice
and Mrs Lum, supported by about 60 fellow Gonkers.

GONKSTOCK '97 took a spot by the summer solstice of 2019 on Saturday 22nd June, with a packed lineup including Fluid Love, Lizzy Hardingham, and plenty of jazz,
for a crowd of 80 Hertfordshire heroes.

Gonkstock took a coronavirus fallow year in 2020, going digital live from London on Saturday 20th June as GONKSTOCK 98.1.
