After a plethora of other major attractions had to be called of due to the coronavirus crisis, it should be welcome news to all that the Bleach* Festival will still go ahead.

The suburbs of Burleigh Heads, Chevron Island and the Royal Botanical Gardens in Benowa will have the pleasure of hosting the various events between November 11 – 22.

Placemakers* Gold Coast CEO and Artistic Director, Rosie Dennis says organisers have been working around the clock to figure out how the event can still go ahead.

“Back in March we wrote to our festival followers saying that we were optimistically planning to proceed with Bleach* Festival in August this year.

“Since that time, we have explored a range of different options to do just that.

“We’re very pleased to be announce that Bleach* Festival will return in November 2020 with a range of contemporary experiences performed by a stellar line-up of renowned Australian artists.

“We’re now putting the finishing touches on the re-imagined program with a full line-up of artists and events to be announced in early August – which we are certain will entice and delight audiences across the Gold Coast and beyond!” Ms Dennis said.
