“I can’t wait to get up to Blues on Broadbeach!” award-winning Aussie talent Ash Grunwald said.
“A couple of years ago I did a rocking gig on the main stage, surrounded by people looking down from the balconies of their apartments… it made the space into an amphitheatre, and with the huge crowd in front, it was just a special way to play,” Ash added.
“This year we’re gonna make it a bit of an extravaganza, including a lot of special guests and a really big band. It should be a huge one!”
Also included in today’s announcement were guitar expert Dave Hole and independent star Shaun Kirk, along with Uptown Brown, Ezra Lee, The New Savages, Little Billie and a host of others.
The Blues on Broadbeach festival will this year run from May 17-20, across more than 20 indoor and outdoor stages, attracting blues fans young and old to bars, restaurants, parks and the streets of the Gold Coast’s most iconic entertainment hub.
More than 150 acts will make up the four-day festival, catering to music fans young and old, with performances from blues, folk, soul, roots and rock artists from across Australia and the world.
“The festival prides itself on covering all genres of the blues spectrum and the 2018 program is a balance of amazing artists and diverse sounds from Australia and the world’s best,” Program Director Mark Duckworth said.
More than 160,000 people attended last year’s event, soaking up the sunshine and sounds, with even more expected to attend this year.
