A concert by the beach - where else would you be?
Castaway to Sandstone Point on 20 February 2016 for the third Castaway Festival in Australia. The first two festivals were at Rottnest Island, Western Australia.
This Castaway Festival is at the idyllic Sandstone Point Hotel, just across the water from Bribie Island. The waterside location makes this a must do festival for any self-respecting urban music enthusiast.
On 20 February, the beachside serenity will be descended upon by multitudes of fans and rap lovers. Sandstone Point Hotel hosts well loved Aussie rapper Allday, along with Gill Bates and Feki, What So Not, Dune Rats, Golden Features, Dune Rates, Sable and Tina Says.
The first allocation of tickets to this event have sold out and the second allocation is now on sale so get in quick if you're interested.
Sandstone Point Hotel offer a location and facilities that are hard to match. Little more than twelve months old, the multi-million dollar hotel is right beside the water at Sandstone Point. Events are held out on the grassy sloped area looking toward the bay, the natural ampitheatre slope makes it easy for everyone to see when all patrons are relaxed out on the grass. They have a habit for some events of putting VIP chairs toward the front causing viewing difficulties for those sitting on the ground directly behind the chairs, but that is on a concert by concert basis dependent on the promoter. See their information regarding major concert events to ensure your satisfied with your ticket selection.
Don your bathers, hats and sunglasses for a great afternoon and evening by the bay. Watch the sun go down to the tunes of Castaway and make memories with friends.
The entire area of Sandstone Point Hotel is licenced so you can bring your drinks down to the concert area, but no food is allowed in - they normally supply takeaway type meals that you can eat sitting on the grass such as fish bites and chips, pulled pork rolls and other assorted finger food meals.
Sandstone Point Hotel is located 1800 Bribie Island Road, Sandstone Point. Right before the Bribie Island Bridge. See their website for further concert information or the event Facebook page.
