Surfers Paradise food business hit hard by the loss of big event street traffic offer up a range of specials for the Gold Coast Music Awards 2020.
The way everyone has geared up in anticipation for tomorrow’s Virtual Gold Coast Music Awards is just one example of the extraordinary adaptability shown by the Gold Coast music and arts community during the current COVID-19 isolation period.
Video watch parties are organised across the city, with artists, sponsors, finalists, music lovers and music shakers across the industry ready to fill their cups, don their glamorous best up top and celebrate the best of the best in Gold Coast music from the safety of their lounge rooms. But what is everyone doing for dinner?
Normally held on the sparkling foreshore of Surfers Paradise, with its huge stage packed full of local musical talent, the night of the live Gold Coast Music Awards is a big draw for foot traffic to the business of Surfers Paradise, particularly the restaurants. This year however, with audiences watching from the comfort of home, the once-thriving Surfers hospitality industry will feel the knock.
This is why, tomorrow night, local traders are offering a range of deals from highly discounted burgers and pasta to luxurious dessert delivered to your door, giving the perfect opportunity for Gold Coasters to support these businesses during the GCMAs without breaking the bank. It’s crucial that the community bands together to support businesses through such economic loss, predominantly these anticipated pockets of revenue through events that have now been redirected online, so be sure to check your fave delivery app or local restaurant for pickup and #supportlocal.
As locals cosy in with their favourite takeaway this Thursday 30 April, this year’s highly anticipated virtual presentation will feature international favourites such as Tones and I, Amy Shark, Sophie Monk and Casey Barnes. Couch attendees will celebrate the 31 finalists as winners of the GCMA’s career-changing awards are announced from 7pm tpmorrow. Get your reminder here.
