CEO of Broadbeach Alliance Jan McCormick said the 2015 festival will deliver some of the best artists in the country, whilst remaining free to attend.
“The Blues on Broadbeach Music Festival continues to grow every year and with the line-up we are about to present we believe people will fly from across the country to be a part of this incredibly unique event.”
The 2015 festival will showcase Australian and international artists on outdoor stages and in venues throughout Broadbeach.
“Apart from being free, what is so unique about Blues on Broadbeach is that you can book a table at one of the restaurants or an apartment in Broadbeach and soak up the festival atmosphere and in some cases even see the main stages from the comfort of your table or balcony” said Mrs McCormick.
City of Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate said the Blues on Broadbeach Festival was an important part of the Gold Coast events calendar for locals and visitors alike.
“Securing world-renowned acts has elevated the reputation of the festival and has translated into thousands of international and domestic visitors,” said Cr Tate.
“It has been enormously satisfying seeing the festival growth year after year, and I know that next year will be the best yet.”
The Blues on Broadbeach Music Festival May 21-24, 2015, is a free event to attend.
Further announcements on the 2015 Festival line-up are expected before Christmas.
