BLEACH* Opening Party

Presented By Bleach* Festival, City Of Gold Coast And Bond University

Bleach* Festival 2018 is all about an invitation — to you, our friends, neighbours, and visitors — and what better way to kick-off three weeks of fun than with an invitation to party?

The City is alive; it’s festival season and time to celebrate! Bleach* is kicking off this year’s party with some of Australia’s finest musicians and performers, including musical juggernaut and masters of fun, Melbourne Ska Orchestra.

Led by the energetic and charismatic Nicky Bomba (John Butler Trio, Nicky Bomba, Bustamento), Melbourne Ska Orchestra is a 36-piece force-to-be-reckoned-with, renowned for their inimitable spin on the ska genre.

Opening the nights proceedings, “trop~pop” quintet Mighty Duke & The Lords are forecast to blow up one hell of a tropical party hurricane!

Having wowed audiences of all ages the world over, now is your chance to dance the night away or kick back with a picnic under the stars — whatever your jam.

So save the date and rally your tribe for this free, explosive and infectious night of live performance by the lake at Bond University.
