Radiothon Party 2015

RTRFM’s annual Radiothon Party returns on Saturday, 15 August from 8pm ‘til late, with a huge showcase of 23 local acts across five Northbridge venues!

Sprawling across The Bird, Connections Nightclub, Jimmy’s Den, and the Lounge and Studio Underground foyer at the State Theatre Centre of Western Australia, RTRFM’s Radiothon Party celebrates Western Australian talent, with a variety of acts and DJs covering all genres and styles.

Live and breathe rock ‘n’ roll? Head to Jimmy’s Den for a stellar line-up of hard rock heavyweights, including The Love Junkies, Pat Chow, Puck, Scalphunter and Surf Rabbits.

For explorations in psych, garage and jangle-rock, The Bird is the word, with live music from Mugwump, Rat Columns, The Spunloves, Verge Collection and DJ Tanya Bunter (Drivetime).

Bask in the golden glow of the State Theatre Centre of Western Australia’s expansive Studio Underground foyer for a special Radiothon edition of local talk show Magnolia’s Late Night Live, hosted Tristan Fidler and Matt Aitken.

Magnolia’s will be followed by live sets from alt-folk singer-songwriter Heathcote Blue, with The Leap Year, Red Jezebel and The Kill Devil Hills bringing the noise until well past midnight. RTRFM’s Homegrown DJs will close out the night, spinning nothin’ but the freshest domestic produce ‘til late.

Punters seeking carefree dance party vibes should make a beeline for Connections Nightclub, where they’ll enjoy the feel-good dance floor selections of Andrew Sinclair versus Rok Riley, Splash Bros., bedazzled beatmaker Catlips and The Monarchy DJs.

Or pop into the Lounge on William Street to chill and/or boogie to the sounds of Woodstock Rock DJs, Golden Apples DJs and {MOVE} DJs on the decks ‘til 2am.

Radiothon Party kicks off the first weekend of Radiothon, RTRFM’s annual 10-day fundraising drive that encourages listeners to dig deep and support the station they love by subscribing or donating.
