If there is one thing the Gold Coast loves and one thing we definitely don’t have enough of, it is surfing and live music in that order (obviously).
Come to think of it, we love live music too so it is really quite good that The Drop Festival is returning to our golden shores on April 6th with a big old lineup of epic acts.
Last years’ The Drop Festival was a great success, all salty ocean breezes and high vibe dance moves taking over Coolangatta and we’re fairly certain this year will be even better. Let’s discuss.
The Drop Festival follows the Aussie leg of the World Surfing League tour and will stop off at our southern stretch of Queensland after having brought the good vibes to Newcastle and Manly and then moving on its’ merry way to Torquay and Busselton.
For us, of course, the Quiksilver and Roxy Pros will be in full swing, which makes it highly likely you’ll spy a familiar face or two in the crowd.
The musical talent rolling up this year are some of the best Aussie musicians of our time (what a phrase) including cruisy crooners Angus and Julia Stone, good time gang The Jungle Giants, electric dance legends Client Liaison, the ever-entertaining Hockey Dad, folk popster Alex the Astronaut and Coolangatta Unearthed winners Ivey.
It’s going to be a real good time Gold Coasters.
Of course, there will be plenty of food options available as well as a bar for all your frosty beverage needs.
The Drop Festival is a local and environmentally sustainable event so there’s no reason in the whole world not to pop your party pants on and get involved.
The combination of a laidback surf lifestyle, big love for the local community and the exceptional talent of our Aussie musos make The Drop Festival one to remember but get in quick, tickets are selling FAST.
See you there for a dance.
