Huge love and respect to the Freocast Faithful for braving the wild weather for our third Friday event on 28 July. As always, we love touching base and sharing tunes with our listeners and wider community. Merch was moved, flesh was pressed, and The Drop DJs held it down on our live broadcast until 10pm.
Shoutouts to our regular sponsors Gage Roads Freo, Old Bridge Cellars and Lightning Minds for contributing to the BYO.
Our next live event will be elevated, in every sense, by our new Freocast Forecast Terrace. Pieced together by local legends Greg and Dan, using donations from the kind folk at Urban Stone, Creation Landscape Supplies and EarthCare, the Terrace (on the Terrace) will serve as a stage and/or dancefloor, depending on evening’s broadcast. We are so excited to continue expanding our space and bringing our community vision to Freo.

Stick around after Stay Lit to get deep. Join DJ Johnny Deep on a weekly genre-spanning exploration of the deepest dance vibes. Frequencies will be low - prepare your cat / car alarms.
Only Tomorrow with Holiday Forever, (Fortnightly) Sunday 6pm-8pm.
Holiday Forever and a weekly guest join the airways every second Sundays, for two hours of old and new discoveries. Tunes will span a journey of genres, from left-field pop, balearic, post-punk, new wave, ambient and everything in between. Expect a strong focus on burgeoning and trailblazing independent artists and labels. Wind down your weekend right. Only tomorrow, the love comes easy.
Thanks to everyone for your support as we bring the Freocast dream closer to reality. We’ve been working hard on the internal fitout of our South Tce Studio, to make a sustainable, community-focused space that looks and good as it sounds.
It’d be great to meet you while we put the finishing touches together. In front of the studio is our Freocast Forecourt Community Parklet is always open. Bring a coffee down, put your feet up and listen to our live broadcast. On Friday 2nd June we’ll be hosting our first Freocast Friday shindig with live DJs - feel free to bring something stronger than coffee and get your weekend started earlier. This will be the first live broadcast from the studio! Come down and celebrate with us!
