New festival for Surfers Paradise

The Gold Coast City Council approved the staging of the two-day Beach Life festival on Surfers Paradise beach – the first commercial enterprise on the stretch.

It is the initiative of Gold Coast promoter Billy Cross and Fuzzy. Cross who has been lobbying the Council for a long time, expects 20,000 to attend over two days in January (4 & 5) and give local traders a boost.

To offset the inevitable protests, the music only starts after 3 pm and stops at 10 pm, and only a 200-metre stretch will be fenced off during that time.

Set up as an electro hip hop event to fill the void left by the closure of Summafieldayze, acts announced include DJ Skrillex, Wiz Khalifa and A$AP Rocky.
