With our much-loved Blues on Broadbeach 2021 just four weeks away, we are delighted to celebrate this milestone by announcing that Blues on Broadbeach has its own beer!
The festival’s program is confirmed, promising an incredible and diverse display of performances ranging from Blues and Roots to Folk and Rock, and even some Reggae and Funk, but the icing on the cake, or rather, the froth on top of the festival, has also been locked in.
Blues on Broadbeach is excited to announce a terrific new partnership with Wingman Beer! The official beer of Blues on Broadbeach 2021, they will be providing limited edition ‘Blues on Broadbeach’ Wingman Beer cans on sale at the festival, including in their pop-up bars in the festival precinct.
Will Chambers, General Manager – Wingman Beer said:
“We are thrilled to be announced as the Official Beer of Blues on Broadbeach. Like most people, we have eagerly anticipated the return of live entertainment, and to celebrate Wingman Beer’s first foray into supporting the music industry, we are excited to launch a limited edition can of the Wingman 3.5% mid-strength beer, which will be available to patrons at the Wingman Bars in Kurrawa Park and Victoria Park.
Having relocated the business from NSW to South East Queensland in mid-2020, we are keen to build partnerships and support initiatives which drive visitation to the Gold Coast, and we will be showcasing the new Blues on Broadbeach can at events in NSW in the coming weeks.”
Major Events Gold Coast GM of Marketing and Communications, Lisa Lees is just as thrilled to be teaming up with Wingman Beer:
“You don’t get better integration from a festival sponsor than the partnership we have with Wingman. Not only do we have an ‘official beer’ for the 2021 festival, but we also have collectable Blues on Broadbeach beer cans on sale, that we know our fans will want to sample and souvenir. Thank you Wingman.”

Australian singer-songwriter and guitarist Lloyd Spiegel is among the first acts performing, with the first of his two shows on Thursday the 20th from 5:00pm.
He returns the next evening, along with the “Jimi Hendrix of the Hammond Organ” Lachy Doley and The Horns of Conviction. As well as Melbourne outfit Jazz Party, and blues-rock guitarist Hamish Anderson.
Saturday the 22nd vows to be a spectacular evening, with West Aussie rock juggernaut The Southern River Band performing at 5:15pm as the perfect pre-cursor to Aussie rock icons and headline act Wolfmother, with the legends who brought you “Joker and the Thief” showcasing their electric talent at 8:45pm.
The last day of the festival on Sunday the 23rd is shaping up to be a more relaxing, yet no less riveting day in Broadbeach. Sydney Blues guitarist and vocalist Ray Beadle, fresh from his first performance the evening before, will be returning to stage at 3:30pm, followed by the idiosyncratic C.W. Stoneking, with the banjo-playing blues marvel performing at 5:15pm.
And finally, what better way to conclude a truly exceptional weekend than to spend the evening with the vibrant and gorgeous Christine Anu, performing the Aretha Franklin Songbook from 7:00pm.
