Let there be rock! exhibition
An exhibition celebrating the heyday of the Gold Coast live rock scene through stories, memorabilia, photos and footage.
This exhibition will stir some memories, reignite people’s passion for this era and create a new opportunity to relive legendary music and great times.
From the 1970s to 1999, the Gold Coast was a hot-spot on the bucket-list of Australia’s live music touring circuit.
With iconic venues like the Playroom, Bombay Rock, The Patch, Jet Club and Fisherman’s Wharf, the Coast played host to some of the hottest and most notorious international and Australian music acts; as well as some of our best local talent. From The Ramones and Cold Chisel at the Playroom to INXS and The Go-Betweens at Bombay Rock; and Nirvana and The Violent Femmes at “Fisho’s”, this was an era of unparalleled and unapologetic music excess.
