Gold Coast Music

Whether it’s indie pop in converted industrial precincts, dance beats in beachside bars and clubs, opera on the beach or international headliners with a picnic and a rug at HOTA’s popular amphitheatre, the Gold Coast music scene is bursting with surprises and diverse offerings for every taste.

In our unique coastal city, hemmed by bush and beach, a myriad of unexpected spaces are repurposed as bustling music venues, where the golden sands become a stage, warehouses host dance parties, high-rise penthouses are performance spaces, where markets, cafés and bars give a tide of new talent their first big break.
