Blues on Broadbeach | Broadbeach

20-23 May

After the approval of its COVID Safe Plan, one of the largest free music events in Australia is back and ready to entertain people in the stunning streets, parks and bars of Broadbeach. A stellar line-up, including Grammy Award-winning Aussie rock legends Wolfmother, Christine Anu, The Black Seeds and C.W Stoneking. The festival may have a new look and feel to it this time, but the incredible standard of blues performances is untouched.

The Vault | Broadbeach

Opening June

THE Gold Coast’s bar and social scene are set to ‘unlock’ a stylish new venue with The Vault Bar & Tapas set to open its door in June. All self-proclaimed whiskey aficionados better pay attention because this jazz-inspired bar will house a timeless range of whiskey, from the old favourites to top-shelf offerings. The Vault is set to create a laidback yet sophisticated venue, but not pretentious, for visitors to enjoy a craft beer, a signature whiskey or one of their expertly created cocktails.

Kira Whitehand

An introverted extrovert who wants to be a journalist, but also a marketer; still trying to pinpoint my passion. If only astrology was real and could tell me what I should be doing. I wake up and fall asleep to music, so if I end up writing about it too you'll know I'm happy. Maybe not as happy as when I see a puppy, but pretty close. I find creative people the most interesting, so interviewing and writing their stories is so intriguing to me. Also, it could lead to backstage passes, so my priorities are definitely in the right order. I always get a wave from my local bubble tea lady as I pass by. She passes the vibe check.
