Gold Coast Music Awards

On Thursday 3rd May, the fourth annual Gold Coast Music Awards will herald the opening of our very own beachfront music festival, Surfers Paradise LIVE.

Eight categories were open for nomination this year, including Album of the year, Artist of the year, Breakout artist of the year, Event of the Year, Song of the Year, Venue of the Year, Video of the Year and new category, Live Act of the Year. Nominations have now closed and finalists will be announced 29 March 2018.

Double J’s Myf Warhurst and Zan Rowe will MC the star-studded event, with headline act Bobby Alu performing with support from Eliza and the Delusionals.

Gold Coast Music Awards Director Sam Morris said that the event had a successful move to Surfers Paradise last year with a sold-out VIP event and local artists Amy Shark and Hanlon Brothers attracting more than 3,000 people to the free live show. “We have an incredible calibre of talent coming out of the Gold Coast" she says. "The Gold Coast Music Awards continues to attract national attention to the city’s burgeoning music scene, celebrating local artists’ outstanding successes through an exciting, highly respected industry awards night.”
