Broadbeach Alliance Chief Executive Officer Jan McCormick said the team were busily putting the finishing touches on the event, and told festival fans to expect even more surprises when further
details on the full bill are released early next year. “We are extremely proud to announce this brilliant line-up, and I’m sure that this versatile group of artists will attract an enormous crowd to next year’s festival,” Mrs McCormick said.
“Visitation numbers are increasing every year and we are expecting this trend to continue, with thousands of people already travelling from interstate and overseas for the event,” she continued.
Queensland Minister for Tourism and Major Events Kate Jones said the calibre of performers would be a huge drawcard for visitors. “The Blues on Broadbeach Music Festival is a highlight on Queensland’s calendar of events which draws visitors from around Australia and overseas,” Ms Jones said. “This year’s event delivered an economic boost of around $20 million into the Gold Coast economy and next year is set to be even bigger.”
