2011 Gold Coast Acoustic Festival

Posted in Local Events @ Aug 8th 2011 9:50am - By Administrator

The sunshine of Broadbeach and the Gold Coast just became more pleasurable. If you’ve holidayed at our Broadbeach apartments before, and have asked yourself, “Could it get any better than this?” The inconceivable answer—well, it has.

Imagine taking in the disarming Gold Coast sunset, while the hushed laughter of holiday makers is complimented by the strum of an acoustic guitar. Then a hum. Then the voice blossoms into song, reminding you that life can be testing and sometimes fair dinkum sad, but there are moments like this one when you can just simply be happy. And the gladness and song will fill your heart like sunlight breathing life into a flower.  

Stay at our 3 bedroom apartments in Broadbeach and experience from September 17-18 the heartening music of the 3rd Gold Coast Acoustic Music Festival. Established and emerging artists from Australia and other countries will share their laidback music with you. Roots and blue grass are also in the carte du jour. Among the musicians performing near our holiday accommodation in Broadbeach is the gifted Angharad Drake, who began composing at the age of 14 and has been performing across Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast for the last 4 years.  Angharad is one of the selected few who participated in the Creative Generation Excellence Awards, and was a finalist in both the Musicoz Awards and Australian Songwriters Association competition.

Another recommended artist is Queensland’s favourite Roots larrikin Asa Broomhall. Asa is one of Queensland’s best-kept secrets, so be sure to enjoy this emphatically entertaining act. The Asa Broomhall band has performed all over the world, and as the front act has stolen the thunder from celebrated performers.

Sitting back and enjoying the show while sipping wine on the beach is already quite the delight. However, the full Gold Coast Acoustic Festival is decidedly more than that. For singers and artists and anyone with a fondness for music, there will be free workshops and jam sessions. Your age or level of experience does not matter—you are invited to share your music with us here at Broadbeach and the Gold Coast Acoustic Festival.
