WATCH: Get ready to rock’n’roll at HOTA this Summer

An exhibition that celebrates all things rock’n’roll has arrived at HOTA, Home of the Arts in time for summer.

Let There Be Rock! officially opens to the public this Saturday at the Gallery at HOTA, and features some key objects from the music houses of the time, including recollections from local music photographers, music fans and industry insiders.

Alongside the exhibition, HOTA will also host a multifaceted, three-month long program of events, including panel sessions, live music and kids activities.


Gallery at HOTA director, Tracy Cooper-Lavery said from 1970-1999, the Gold Coast was a hot-spot on the bucket-list of Australia’s live music touring circuit.

“Let The Be Rock! at HOTA is a homage to this time and we have curated a program for the senses – with the Gallery, through performance, via workshops, in film, through Q & A’s and of course, music,” she said.

“It is a total immersion experience for rock fans of the 70s, 80s and 90s at HOTA and the vital role the Coast played in shaping this scene.”
