Attention Gold Coast music lovers, there’s a 100% free, three-day music festival headed your way. Skegss, Hermitude, Thelma Plum and Haiku Hands are set to headline a stacked lineup for the first-ever ‘SPRINGTIME‘ festival.
Major Events Gold Coast announced ‘SPRINGTIME’ a brand new, free, three-day music festival set to take over the beaches and streets of Surfers Paradise. ‘SPRINGTIME’ will take place between 2-4 September, the very first weekend of spring. According to organisers, ‘SPRINGTIME’’s inaugural year will kickstart the city’s quest to host one of the country’s largest free annual music festival. In great news for the still-recovering local industry, ‘SPRINGTIME’ promises to place the spotlight firmly on Aussie artists, while highlighting the local music, entertainment and business in a celebration of all that is good about the most popular beachside destination.
Having all performed around the country at some of Australia’s largest music festivals, Gamilaraay pop queen Thelma Plum, surf-garage rock trio Skegss and Australian electronic-hip hop duo Hermitude (DJ Set) are the big drawcards and would be worthy of attending for alone, but the rest of the lineup is equally as appealing. With the trio of headliners joined by Sneaky Sound System, Skunkhour, Alex the Astronaut, JK-47, Haiku Hands, Ninajirachi, Teen Jesus & The Jean Teases, and triple j host and DJ Ebony Boadu. With additional sets from IVEY, Teenage Dads, Peach Fur, DVNA, Saint Lane, EUCA, Buttered, The Oogars, Girl & Girl, as well as DJ sets from BEKS, VICES, Fletcher, Just Jessie and elsewhere DJs & Latour and Samin & Lotnnic.
Spread across multiple free outdoor stages and sideshow partner venues, including a partnership with the Gold Coast Music Awards to be held at the city’s iconic art precinct HOTA. ‘SPRINGTIME’ is the perfect opportunity for punters to explore the many offerings of the Gold Coast, and locals to get reacquainted with the city they live in.
Tickets for SPRINGTIME Festival do not go on sale because this is a free event! If getting all of this for the princely sum of ‘free dollars’ sounds appealing, then get searching up flights to the Gold Coast pronto, before airlines catch wind of what’s happening and try to charge you a premium.
2-4 September, Surfers Paradise, Gold Coast
