SONG AND PRANCE

Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - - OPINION -

SUM­MERS on the Gold Coast were once syn­ony­mous with top-flight live mu­sic. Think Good Vi­bra­tions, Sum­mafiel­d­ayze, Big Day Out and the end­less tours of world­class acts. Well those golden days of sum­mer are back.

Coun­cil’s green light of the two-day SandTunes fes­ti­val at Coolan­gatta late next year and news Bon Jovi have been booked for Metricon Sta­dium her­alds a re-emer­gence of the out­door gig scene.

First-class mu­sic acts are a mag­net for vis­i­tors and com­ple­ment work be­ing done in other ar­eas of the tourism in­dus­try.
