Bleach* The Gold Coast festival stuns with a 2019 program packed to the brim with world-class music, dance, theatre, circus and arts.
Up to now, the team at Bleach* The Gold Coast Festival have dropped just a few tasty tidbits about their 2019 event, with anticipation building for Montaigne’s headline set at Bleach* at Burleigh, and tickets for musical centrepiece Verdi’s ‘Requiem’ disappearing fast. Today’s full program announcement continues to excite, with hundreds of remarkable local, national and international artists set to bring the Gold Coast alive over the 12 day event in April.
Described as ‘a program with something for everyone’, 2019’s lineup is filled with moments to inspire and invogorate, including: an exhilarating performance experience of Throttle by home company, The Farm; Dancenorth’s beach spectacular Tectonic; sassy circus-cabaret Limbo Unhinged; the musical pyrotechnic riot of Pyrophone Juggernaut; an ever-popular Pub Choir singalong; provocative Shock Therapy installation The Cleaners; funny and intimate story performance My Urrwai by Ghenoa Gela; boundary-pushing grindhouse cabaret Terror Australis, and musical performances by Mama Kin Spender and Kira Puru.
As always, the Bleach* team has committed to First Nations programming, with stories, music and heritage of local Yugambeh and Bundjalung peoples being told through events On This Land We Gather, Ganngalanji (Listen Call-Out Think), and Kyle Slabb’s Nyala Bulahbu Gali, where participants are invited for a conversation and a cuppa.
Broadbeach’s Centenary Park and HOTA, together with the return of Bleach* at Burleigh — running for the 12 days of the Festival — will become the major landmarks in 2019. Across the coast, the program weaves throughout the stunning waterways with Water Songs, onto our streets with Feast on Fifth, into the Aquatic Centre for Landing, with some events even presented in private homes.
