About Us

Zaccaria Concerts and Touring (ZCT) is the culmination of many years of experience in the live music and events industry, having developed unrivalled expertise in the promotion and production of large-scale concert events, including outdoor concerts. The team consists of passionate people with extensive music industry backgrounds, focused on delivering a premium entertainment experience for its’ clients.

Zaccaria (ZCT) was formed in 2006 by John Zaccaria in Perth, Western Australia. A former professional drummer, John believed there was a great opportunity for a “boutique” events company, with a family culture and atmosphere, that could deliver great Australian artists to the local market.


ZCT owns and continues to develop three of Australia’s top outdoor concert brands – BY THE C, CASTAWAY, and SUMMERSALT. All three brands are targeted at different audiences and markets, but the consistent themes are unique, beach or waterside locations, with a strong emphasis on local community and sustainability. ZCT also produces RUNAWAY GARDENS which is home to a variety of artisan and eclectic live music and entertainment.

The brands allow ZCT to engage multiple artists from different genres to perform under varying line ups, to the right audience, in an amazing setting.

The family culture and atmosphere is fundamental to ZCT and underpins all the core values of the company, with a firm commitment to patron experience and safety, and creating a great experience and providing the very best for the artists they tour.

Zaccaria is now one of the largest independent concert promoter in Australia, and proudly 100% Australian owned. ZCT continues to promote live concert events in Australia.
