Much-loved Gold Coast music festival reveals it’s making a comeback!

One of the Gold Coast’s most loved music festivals has announced it’s making a comeback, just three months after bidding farewell to the city.

Buskers by the Creek founder Cindy Jensen took to Facebook in October, to announce the sad news that she simply couldn’t afford to continue running the festival.

In an emotional post, Ms Jensen said her family had made the difficult decision to cancel the popular family friendly event.


“It is with much sadness and a heavy heart that I have decided that I can no longer continue bringing “Buskers by the Creek” to the City of Gold Coast!” the post read.

“For the past six years the festival has cost myself and my family hundreds of thousands of dollars and it’s had a huge impact on us emotionally and financially.

“As much as everyone including the acts, food vendors, local businesses and the City have benefitted, I have continually struggled to keep my family and festival afloat.”

However, a post on the Buskers by the Creek Facebook page overnight revealed the beloved event, which has been held at Currumbin Creek for the past five years, would be making a comeback.

“We’re coming back big in more ways than one,” the post read.

“A drum roll please…… Applications for this year’s festival will go live on our website early February! Yes, you heard right festival folk! We’re just finalising a number of things, but it’s full steam ahead for buskers in 2020 and we’re coming back BIG in more ways than one!

“Stay tuned for further news soon to be announced!”

When asked whether the festival will continue to be held on the Gold Coast, they simply replied “Stay Tuned”.
