Viva fever rocks into Surfers Paradise

ROCK‘n’roll fans are in for a treat this weekend with the launch of the 10-day Viva Surfers Paradise festival.

Not only is Viva the ultimate tribute to The King, but fans can renew their wedding vows on the beach, be inspired by rockabilly fashion shows and enjoy performances by Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison tribute artists.

The festival kicks off with an Elvis Presley Movie Night tonight at the Viva Marquee, showing Viva Las Vegas at 6pm and King Creole at 8pm.


Mike Winlaw, CEO of Surfers Paradise Alliance, said the event will be bigger this year.

“The entertainment is free and there are lots of ways to participate and enjoy the activities,” he said.
