SummerSalt beachside festival is hitting our shores

October 13, 2021


Following the enormous success of the SummerSalt concert series across Australia over past summer seasons, Zaccaria Concerts & Touring are thrilled to continue announcing the next season of SummerSalt concert events around Australia in 2022.

Next cab off the rank is Gold Coast! Music lovers are set for a stellar line-up of artists, featuring MISSY HIGGINS, JOHN BUTLER, XAVIER RUDD, BIRDS OF TOKYO, THE WAIFS and TULLIAH, by the ocean breeze at Queen Elizabeth Park, Coolangatta.

Since its inception, SummerSalt has continued to deliver the finest Australian artists in some of the most scenic locations around the country. This beachside festival event is set to be a great day out with live music and a vibrant setting. It’s the perfect place to bask in the sun and ocean breeze while kicking back or dancing the day & night away to some of Australia’s best live music. Homegrown talent, beachside location, family-friendly activities and Little Nippers Kids Zone, local market stalls, lush lawns, food trucks, and a selection of refreshing beverages perfect for a day in the sunshine.

Promoter, John Zaccaria says “after powering through a tumultuous time for live concerts, we are so excited bring this great outdoor festival event to the Gold Coast for the first time. We’re all keen to get back to enjoying fun days out with friends and some of Australia’s best live music. We have a top line-up of homegrown Aussie talent to bring to Coolangatta and can’t wait to see music fans out again making sensational summer memories with their mates.”

Gold Coast Mayor, Tom Tate says “This is just the tonic our city needs as we kick off 2022: great music from home-grown artists set against our incredible Coolangatta beach backdrop. We are investing in our live music economy through our Live Music Action Plan plus the evolving HOTA precinct. I can’t wait to make a date with Xavier and the other class acts.”
