About Rufus

“You have to hand it to them - Castaway know how to throw a hell of a beach party” – The Music.com.au

Hot on the heels of our Castaway Dec 11th 2016 event featuring Gang of Youths, Jarryd James, Bag Raiders, and co. here comes beachside blowout numero duo - Castaway 2017. Two Castaways, one summer - can you handle it? Yes. Yes you can. Booze, sun, dancing, the best time of your life, etc. You know the deal. 

Couldn’t be more stoked to have three of Australia’s most spectacular musicians / humans RÜFÜS joining us for our next island soiree. The five-time-ARIA-Award nominated Sydney trio will be boating over to the island as part of a huge road trip they’ll be taking around Australia this summer - “The Full Bloom Tour”, playing ~those~ magical anthems You Were Right and Innerbloom. There’s never a shortage of stunning electronic music going when Brisbane-based producer, instrumentalist and vocalist THE KITE STRING TANGLE is around - can’t wait to get Tangled up at Thompson’s Bay with this gorgeous talent. Having spent a good part of last year on tour with both RÜFÜS and Odesza, Sydney’s YUMA X are one of the real finds of 2016 - a singer / producer duo making soft, beautiful, woozy electronica that impresses the pants off most everyone who hears it. And hanging out with the big boys, we have old m8s from the West PILERATS DJs. 

Castaway Festival 2017

Thompson’s Bay, Rottnest Island, WA

Sunday February 12 | 12pm – 6pm | 18+


"The crowd screamed mid-chorus; 'Welcome to the land of pleasure!' which, for the rest of Castaway Festival, Rottnest Island really was…A bloody good time.” - Avenoir Magazine

The joint concept of Metric Events (Wonderland, Jack Rabbit Slim’s, Father) and Zaccaria Concerts & Events (Bjorn Again, Cold Chisel, Stevie Wonder), Castaway is W.A.’s favourite island festival, already with four successful sold-out events to its name, including a Brisbane chapter, and two more coming this summer. Peking Duk, Sticky Fingers, Golden Features, SAFIA, What So Not, Benson and more have all hopped over to W.A.’s favourite holiday island paradise in years gone by for more antics than the island could handle! What started as a cosy soiree has evolved into the most talked-about island party this side of the Indian ocean.
