Summer of Sport & Music

It's a summer of sport and music on the Gold Coast - you're invited to get out and enjoy it!

The Gold Coast is home to a diverse range of sporting events – everything from volleyball to horse racing, surfing and golf. This summer, a bunch of specialist live music acts can be found at venues around the city.

The Queensland Beach Volleyball Tour kicks off on Surfers Paradise beach in December as does the Australian PGA Championship at RACV Royal Pines, where Adam Scott will contest his title. 

In January and February, you can experience the excitement of the Magic Millions Race Day and Sales and watch the serious athletes battle it out at the Gatorade Queensland Tri Series Triathlon. See the top women golfers teeing off at the RACV Ladies Masters or watch the world's best surfers at the Quiksilver Pro and Roxy Pro contests.

In addition to the live music on offer at the Christmas celebrations around the city, there are some excellent live music acts at places like the Currumbin Soundlounge, the Gold Coast Arts Centre, the Coolangatta Hotel, Miami Marketta and the Village Markets.For a full list of events and live music in our city, visit
