The official Launch of the Bleach* Festival Program was held in spectacular fashion at Currumbin RSL on 30 January. Bleach* is set to roll out across the Gold Coast from 7-23 March, with program highlights that celebrate the best of the Coast’s past and present.
Bleach* Festival is set to roll out across the Gold Coast from 7-23 March, with the biggest lineup of contemporary artists, musicians, performers, speakers, entertainers and surfing enthusiasts the Gold Coast has ever seen.
In true Bleach* style, the launch of the Festival Program was a fun-filled affair with entertainment by the Raw Dance Company and Slip on Stereo. ABC Coast FM’s Trevor Jackson was on hand to interview key Festival contributors about the program, with Queensland Tourism Minister Jann Stuckey MP, Mayor Tom Tate and several City of Gold Coast Councillors in attendance to support the Festival.
Program highlights for Bleach* 2014 include Fibro Coast, an artistic interpretation of the Gold Coast’s fibro “beach shack” history; and Splash! a free circus performance inspired by the beach and designed to embrace the weather – rain, hail or shine. Get ready to get wet! As well as these new events, last year’s crowd favourites Eat Street at Tugun and Bleach* Boulevard at Currumbin will be back by popular demand.
