Readers can view the promotional video above, below is the breakdown of the festival, words by Trash Monroe drummer David Pankhurst:
An all day event of music and family fun
"This will be the first time in many years, that I have put together an event like this. It has come about due to my son Daniel and fellow guitarist of TRASH MONROE's stepdaughter Evie having autism.
The initial idea was to raise money for charity, but I also want to raise enough money to get an IPAD for both children to help them with their educational use in school."

BELOW IS A LITTLE BIT OF INFO ABOUT AUTISM...
Autism is something that affects thousand's of families on a daily basis, more than you realize. The official name is autism spectrum disorders. Why? Because doctors include autism in a group of problems that kids can have, including Asperger syndrome and others. These problems happen when the brain develops differently and has trouble with an important job: making sense of the world.
Every day, our brains interpret (understand) the things we see, smell, hear, taste, touch, and experience. But when someone's brain has trouble interpreting these things, it can make it hard to talk, listen, understand, play, and learn.
A kid with an autism spectrum disorder might:
Imagine trying to understand what your teacher is saying if you didn't know what her words really mean. It is even more frustrating if a kid can't come up with the right words to express his or her own thoughts, or tell a parent what he or she needs or wants. Sometimes this can make a kid very upset and frustrated.
My little Dan has a love for music, so what better way than a load of live bands?
