Gold Coast launches new Feedback Festival to help recovery of live music sector

As Australia slowly begins to open back up, the Gold Coast will see more than 50 bands perform over 100 hours of live music across 10 nights during Feedback Festival.

From 3 December until 13 December, 10 venues across the Gold Coast will host a program highlighting local artists and promoting Australian music.

“The Music Advisory Group wanted to help live music recover from the last six months and we knew engaging existing live music venues was the best way to do that,” said Music Advisory Group Chair Dean Gould.

“Most importantly, Feedback Festival 2020 will be fun, but it is also a symbol of the Gold Coast’s commitment to the live music scene.”

Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate said he was excited to see live music back at venues.

“We know how important it is to our community as well as the local arts scene,” he said.

“I would encourage all music lovers to get along and check out the local talent and support local venues.

“It’s wonderful to see our Music Action Plan coming to life, doing what it was intended to do – that is, supporting local talent, art and the Gold Coast music scene.”
