Nerang Street Mall will be transformed into a hive of street culture when Gold Coast CBD presents Street Beats in Southport on 29 February.
Street Beats is the Gold Coast’s newest event celebrating our street culture and street art scenes.
Get ready for an afternoon and evening of non-stop entertainment, with live music, graffiti art, DJ’s, breakdancing, beatboxing, flair rider stunt bikes, parkour demonstrations and a kids ninja obstacle course all happening from 3pm to 8pm.
Headlining the main stage will be 2018 Triple J’s unearthed winners, Bugs. Bugs have recently returned from supporting Grinspoon on tour, Burleigh based Lemaire, Gratis Minds and Teigan Le Plastrier.
Australia’s only beatboxing event emcee, Jonny Drama, will be entertaining us on the mic and emceeing the beatboxing and breakdancing battles!
A number of young locals will battle it out in a performance to stun. Their shared goal? To become the next Street Beats’ champion breakdancer or beatboxer!
The flair rider stunt bikes are a high action choreographed show crossing the boundaries between Trails, BMX and Freestyle Moto-X and will thrill as they perform some of the biggest tricks ever attempted on trials motorcycles.
Don’t miss out on the opportunity to join the competition to draw the best caricature with graffiti artists giving two lucky locals the chance to have their drawing come alive and be spray painted on the event graffiti wall.
There’s plenty to do for everyone. Kids can get involved with a ninja warrior obstacle course for them to master! Everyone is invited, so come along with your family and friends and embrace Gold Coast’s street culture.
