Broadbeach Alliance CEO Jan McCormick said the success of the event is largely due to the quality of the entertainment and the fact that it is entirely free.
“This is gearing up to be our biggest Blues on Broadbeach Music Festival ever with international and national artists performing on six outdoor stages and in 11 indoor venues across the precinct,” she said.
“This is a fantastic music festival which provides locals and visitors to the Gold Coast an opportunity to enjoy everything that Broadbeach has to offer – the beaches, parks, restaurants, bars and endless variety of accommodation.”
Must-See performances this year include the Guitar Tribute to the Blues (Phil Emmanuel, DIESEL, Eugene Hideaway Brides, Kevin Borich, Owen Campbell and 8 Ball Aitken hitting the stage for an incredible one-off performance on Sunday from 3.30pm – 5.15pm) and the iconic Time of My Life band (featuring Daryl Braithwaite, Joe Camilleri, James Reyne and Ross Wilson on Sunday from 5.45pm – 7.15pm).
