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.

Nominations are open for the eight award categories. With a brand-new category Live Act of the Year added to the mix, an esteemed panel of independent judges will name the region’s best talents and achievements in the categories of 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 and Video of the Year. Nominations close 2nd March.

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.”
