Live music set to return to the Gold Coast with innovative new Feedback Festival

Feedback Festival

It’s been a weird and uncertain year for everyone this year, but particularly so for the music world. When the global industry screeched to a sudden halt back in March, live music was suspended indefinitely as the world grappled with the pandemic, and it remained unclear as to when it would ever return. Thankfully, things have slowly started to open up again and live music is (very) steadily returning to our venues. We’ve seen small, seated gigs across the country, festivals in Perth and innovative new ways to experience live music while remaining COVID-safe are being explored.

Enter FEEDBACK FESTIVAL, a brand new festival to hit the Gold Coast this December. Spread over ten nights, the festival will descend on ten of the country’s most unique music venues and will focus squarely on delivering an exciting program of discovery and excitement, highlighting local artists and promoting Australian music. More than 50 bands have been booked, with a few secret headliners still to be revealed.

Fans of Jazz can enjoy dinner and a show at Spaghetti & Jazz, while those looking to check out something free with the family can explore what HOTA has on offer. Elsewhere will continue to provide a world-class combination of electronic and indie line ups and Mos’ Desert Club House will become the prime spot for cocktails and live, left-of-field entertainment.

For punters looking to experience something a little rough around the edges, Vinnies Dive Bar will be putting on a handful of punk-inspired shows while The Soundlounge, Southport Yacht Club, Southport Sharks and the Southport RSL will be promoting shows at a slightly less intense pace.

Further to that, secret shows, consisting of as-yet undisclosed lineups will also pop up around the city, with line-ups for these events released intermittently over the coming weeks.secret shows, consisting of as-yet undisclosed lineups will also pop up around the city, with line-ups for these events released intermittently over the coming weeks.
