Returning to the Gold Coast from 16-19 May 2024, the 23rd annual Blues on Broadbeach is set to be another massive year celebrating the best homegrown and international rhythm & blues talent.



Featuring artists like Melissa Etheridge, Samantha Fish & Jesse Dayton, Ana Popovic, Eric Bibb, Jon Cleary & The Absolute Monster Gentlemen and many more on the non-ticketed lineup, we’ve got the music taken care of – that’s for sure! 


And when the blues are playin’, the drinks are sure to be flowin’ too! Lucky for you, the Gold Coast is blessed with a huge selection of breweries and distilleries to satisfy all your beer and whiskey cravings!

The Lucky Squire


In case you forgot, the festival is right in the heart of the Gold Coast! With Broadbeach filled with bars and restaurants on every street, a good drink won’t be hard to find. 


If you’re a beer lover, head to Harajuku Gyoza Beer Stadium for a glass of delicious Japanese craft beer or head to The Lucky Squire for a wide selection of quality craft beers brewed right on site at their two-storey brew house. And the best part? As one of our partnered venues, you can enjoy some quality live blues right from your table.


Made with love right here on the Gold Coast, come and have a taste of the unique selection of ales, pilsners, lagers, stouts and sours. From Burleigh Heads down to Currumbin, the list of local watering holes are endless.

Some iconic names you may know include Burleigh Brewing, Black Hops Brewing, Balter Brewing and more, so make sure to venture out to the rest of the coast for a cheeky beer tasting – or two! 


Whiskey and blues are a lifelong match made in heaven and a quick search will show you an incredible list of whiskey bars scattered throughout Broadbeach and the rest of the Gold Coast. 


Take a sip of some of the best whiskeys from around the world, or keep it local with locally produced liquors at distilleries like Granddad Jack’s, Capricorn Distilling Co and more.

With the 2024 festival program and app now available, you can start planning your must-see/sip list soon for the ultimate rhythm & blues coastal getaway!
