August 5 – Home and Away star to perform at the Strathfield Spring Festival

5 August 2014

Strathfield’s biggest annual event, the Strathfield Spring Festival, will feature a jam packed entertainment line up that includes Home and Away and former X Factor Australia star, Johnny Ruffo.

Johnny is a singer and songwriter, whose career kicked off when he placed third on the X Factor Australia in 2011. He signed with Sony Music following the competition, and his debut single, On Top, peaked at number 14 on the ARIA Singles Chart and was certified platinum. His two follow up releases both reached the top 40 on the ARIA Singles Chart.

Showcasing his wide variety of talents, Johnny won the twelfth season of Dancing with the Stars Australia, and currently stars in the Australian drama Home and Away, which saw him nominated for a Logie Award for Most Popular New Talent earlier in 2014.

Recently turning his focus back to music, Johnny is currently in the process of recording his first album. His third single, Untouchable, takes his music in a different direction, and is a nod to his many influences, including Justin Timberlake, Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder. He will be appearing on the main stage and is looking forward to bringing his pop/R&B sound to the festival.

“I’m really looking forward to performing and meeting everyone at the Strathfield Spring Festival, it’s the place to be this Fathers Day” said Ruffo.

Hosted by Strathfield Council, the 2014 Spring Festival will celebrate Father’s Day with something for the whole family. A Sports Quarter will feature motocross shows, BMX and scooter workshops and martial arts demonstrations, plus the opportunity to enjoy segways, zorb balls, three-wheeler trikes and sports clinics. A dedicated Kidz World will have the children entertained for hours with performers and activities.

The festival also features carnival ride, merchandise stalls, community displays, showbags, food and giveaways.

Don’t miss this Father’s Day family fun. For more information, visit or follow Strathfield Spring Festival on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
