Festival 2018 to serve up 12 unique party events during Commonwealth Games

Artists from across the Commonwealth will hit the stage in a number of free concerts at Surfers Paradise beach during Festival 2018, the arts and cultural program of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games .

Twelve unique party events will take place between 4-15 April, with Meg Mac, Peaches, The Cat Empire and Hot Dub Time Machine just some of the acts set to perform.

Festival 2018 Gold Coast Co-Creative Director Yaron Lifschitz says audiences will experience 12 incredible nights of diverse entertainment.


“Each concert event is a special, one-off creation starring an eclectic collection of artists, and each event opens a window into some aspect of our world,” Mr Lifschitz said.

Each night of entertainment is based around a theme, such as Electric Lady, which is inspired by the movement of women rights, Sparkle in the Sand, which will celebrate the global LGBTQI family, and Young African Commonwealth, which will showcase new African music.

The 12 free concerts will take place at Main Stage at Surfers Paradise Beach and is just one of the highlights of Festival 2018. For full program details and more information visit gc2018.com/festival2018
