A paradise venue that’s straight off a postcard, and huge Australian music acts that go hard. Over the past four sold-out Castaways, we’ve made serious party with Peking Duk, Sticky Fingers, Golden Features, SAFIA, What So Not, Benson and more – “We’re gonna need a bigger island!” quickly became the Castaway team’s catchcry, as twice a year the good-times crew flocked to Thompson’s Bay – on Rottnest, an island paradise off the coast of W.A. – by the boatload  – in the process turning our cosy little island soiree into the most talked-about beach bash this side of the Indian Ocean!

Those warm, sexy, summer days are starting to sidle up to us, and hot on their heels is the fourth instalment of Perth’s favourite island festival, Castaway. Yup, the time has come yet again to make best mates with someone who has an epic boat, and sail on over to Castaway to let the Rottnest times roll! Party maestros Metric Events (Wonderland, Jack Rabbit Slim’s, Father) and Zaccaria Concerts & Events (Bjorn Again, Cold Chisel, Stevie Wonder), are stoked to announce the next Castaway on Sunday, December 11, with an absolute ripper of a line-up, featuring some of Australia’s most successful music exports right now.

Castaway’s the only WA festival to truly make the most of the Australian summer beach lifestyle we all live for: sea-breeze in your hair, brilliant blue waters, beers on the beach, a spectacular sunset… and to top it all off, a concert stage back-dropped by bobbing boats, with the cream of the Australian contemporary live music scene smashing out epic sets. Escape the rat race for a day on the island!
