Castaway says

Castaway! We’re going to need a bigger island…

Our first ever music festival on Rottnest Island – Castaway - was without a doubt one of the highlights of our summer – we reckon the 4,000-strong crew who partied with us on the island that day would say the same. As the weather began to warm up recently, slowly exciting thoughts started trickling into our mind – thoughts of escaping the rat race for another day of sun, surf, buddies, beers and bands. So, we sent an S.O.S. to the island. They found our message in a bottle... and the island came through!

Sydney rascals Sticky Fingers are ready to lick off the salty sweat running down your back once they’ve stirred you up into their hot party pot of psych, pop, reggae… and bourbon. Sultry stunner of the high seas, George Maple will cast a hynoptic spell with her slow-burn take on electro R&B. The tightest track flipper in tulip-land, Netherlands’ GANZ is the very welcome international tourist in our island midsts – and he’s packing plenty of bass in with his boardshorts. Gold Coast x Sydney lads Bootleg Rascal will whip you into a frenzied dance state with their mix of dub, soul and roots, burst apart by blistering electronica.

Castaway’s a pretty chilled-out music festival / day. Get to the island in the morning, have a paddle, have a doughnut, have a beer on a friend’s balcony. Then come 12 noon make your way over to Thompsons Bay, where the party in paradise begins. Awesome bands, singers and DJs live on a stage perched smack bang amongst boats bobbing in the water, everyone dancing on the sand, washed in a million shades of warm orangey sunset. It’s a chance to re-live all those crazy, hazy summer days you spent holidaying on the island as a kid – only this time, your folks aren’t here (but your best mates are), you’re all grown up (so you can have a beer…or several) and there’s an exhilarating live music show going down. All in all, your typical awesome Rottnest Island experience…but much better.
