Madding Crowd, Bournemouth

Punks and Rockers Unite To Honour Friend’s Memory in aid of Cancer Research UK for the third year….

Fazza Fest at Madding Crowd, Bournemouth Friday 6th & Saturday 7th October 2023 with a three band Warm-Up at Faren’s Favourite venue Chaplin’s in Boscombe, Bournemouth on 5th October.

Faren Short was obsessed with music and particularly live music, attending thousands of gigs throughout his life supporting national and local bands. Faren died in 2021 after a brave and dignified battle with cancer; his legacy is one big party to celebrate his life featuring bands that Faren himself we believe would have approved of.

Friends David Chinery (Chinners) and Ross Ferrone were given a letter after Faren’s death and were asked to put this fitting celebration together. The first event was such a success that it was decided that it was to be made an annual event.

A team of Faren’s friends along with his brother John Short have lovingly put the festival together; where there will be a unique 21 Track compilation CD on sale, Fazza Fest T-shirts, a Raffle and a Carry On Screaming merch stall.
