Gold Coast Gig Guide

spiral-photography-eff-27

Gigs, gigs, gigs. Live music happens every night on the Gold Coast and live, original music can be sniffed out on most nights. In our gig guide are showcases, festivals, family-friendly music, pubs, clubs, venues of all kinds. From rock to punk, hip-hop to funk, all-ages shows and heavy metal, there’s fuzz guitars and folk, flamenco and funk. Roots, reggae, indie-rock, electronica and synth-driven pop too.

If you love live music on the Gold Coast, you’ve come to the right place.

We seriously love live music. It’s the reason Blank Gold Coast came into existence. We wanted to let as many people know about Gold Coast gigs and live music options on the Gold Coast so that they didn’t have to travel to Brisbane or Byron Bay to get their fix of live shows and gigs.

Our goal is to support local original artists, but our gig guide includes cover bands for select venues who support our work. The live music scene on the Gold Coast is growing rapidly – not just gigs taking place in clubs and pubs, but festivals, community music events, musicals and musical theatre, performances and basically all genres you can think of. We really, really love live music. 

If you’ve got a gig you’d like to include in the gig guide, it doesn’t matter if it’s rock, punk, indie, funk, classical, jazz, roots, r’n’b, folk, flamenco, guitar-laden riffs, instrumental, ensembles or singer-songwriters, please get in touch.
