Lineups announced for Gold Coast Music Awards and Surfers Paradise LIVE

Surfers Paradise LIVE once again delivers four massive nights of music right on the beach in Surfers Paradise this May, and for the third year running, the Gold Coast Music Awards will kick things off.

Thursday 2 May sees Casey Barnes take to the stage for a free, all-ages show on the main stage in Surfers Paradise. A Golden Guitar finalist, Casey will be fresh from touring the USA with shows in Kansas City, Missouri and Sioux Falls in South Dakota so there’s no question he’ll be bringing the goods to Gold Coast’s country music fans.

Also on the bill are emerging Gold Coast superstars San Mei and Peach Fur. San Mei have just racked up a Queensland Music Awards finalist berth for ‘Wonder’ in both the Rock and Regional Award categories, having wowed audiences at BIGSOUND, and are clocking up serious airtime with triple j radio play over the past 12 months. Peach Fur, who last year featured at the GC Music Awards after-party, turned serious heads with their seven-track 2018 release ‘Doreen Drive’. Since then, they’ve been playing stages at every single opportunity, sometimes many times in one weekend, honing their live show and putting in the hard yards to build a fan base on the Gold Coast and further afield. With gigs supporting Tia Gostelow and sets at Mountain Goat Valley Crawl with Sunrose, IVEY, San Mei and Kallidad, these guys have also signed to an independent European management agency with big goals for 2019 and beyond.

For the rest of Surfers Paradise LIVE, Aussie rock superstars will descend on the Gold Coast. The Living End, Hoodoo Gurus and The Screaming Jets will all headline a night of the festival with support acts including Jebediah, Daryl Braithwaite, Chocolate Starfish, Bachelor Girl and tonnes more.

Best of all it’s FREE, and family friendly to boot!

Held from Thursday 2 to Sunday 5 May, Surfers Paradise LIVE kicks off with Gold Coast Music Awards 2019 before launching into three more epic days and nights of music on the sparkling Surfers Paradise shores. Oh, and did we mention it’s totally, completely, 100% free? Get amongst it. More at and
