The Surfers Paradise LIVE festival will transform the heart of the Gold Coast into a multi-stage street festival capturing all the raw energy of a pub gig, but amplified.

Over three days and nights from May 8-10, Surfers Paradise LIVE will combine the best of live music and surfside revelry, with ARIA award-winning duo Sneaky Sound System headlining the Beach Live Stage on Saturday night.

An initiative of the Surfers Paradise Alliance, Surfers Paradise LIVE features a great mix of Australian and international music groups, performing on five stages spread throughout the precinct, including at Surfers Paradise Beach, Cavill Mall, Orchard Avenue and the Esplanade.

Other artists across the festival include Phil Jamieson, Sun City, Ngaiire, Casey Barnes Trio, Mason Rack Band, Bonjah and The Kite Machine.

Spectators are invited to come along and enjoy this free event in what is sure to be a great weekend full of exciting music entertainment.
