Not content with being THE place to go on the Gold Coast for punters to indulge all of their smoky, saucy cravings, BBQ Bazaar in Burleigh has also lined up an epic few months of live music, and most of it is totally FREE. Yes, you heard us.
February sees the dazzling fingerpicking duo of Cadence take to the stage, as well as Dezzie D and the Stringrays, Dawn of Dusk, Mo Groove, The Youngkeys, Polar Bears and the delightful island stylings of Babash Caribbean Reggae, and let’s not forget a wicked ticketed Metallica tribute with Ride The Lightning. Rock on.
March is a lineup of some of Gold Coast’s finest with Felicity Lawless, Benny D Williams, Devils Kiosk and The Wayward Suns all playing free sets while ticketed events include an Amy Winehouse / Prince tribute night (woah) and Big Bros Kiwi Day Out. Choice!
April free events are still in the works but they’re undoubtedly going to be equally tune-tastic, and there are rumours that ticketed events will include an evening of head-banging goodness that is Let There be AC/DC, and the laid back stylings of Creedence Clearwater Revived.
In case you’re one of the few poor souls that hasn’t yet crossed the threshold of this southern Gold Coast institution, BBQ Bazaar is held every Friday and Saturday night and selected Sundays on Junction Road, Burleigh, and entry is totally free. With a wide-ranging selection of tasty slow-cooked meat, burgers and ribs (there are even a few vego / vegan options thrown in), cold frosty beers, and its delectable dessert stalls, BBQ Bazaar is a place to go to feed your tummy while feeding your soul with fabulous music. Check out their Facebook page for tickets and special events.
