Shining a light on sun safety: Cancer Council Queensland at Blues on Broadbeach

Blues on Broadbeach makes its annual return to the sunny Gold Coast from 16-19 May 2024 and we’re thrilled to welcome Cancer Council Queensland as the Official Charity Partner for Blues on Broadbeach 2024 and 2025!


Did you know that Queensland has the highest rates of melanoma in the world with more than 3,600 people estimated to be diagnosed every year? Being a beachside festival with various outdoor stages spread throughout the Broadbeach precinct, there was no better place to spread the word on the importance of sun safety. 

Established in 1961, Cancer Council Queensland is dedicated to improving quality of life for people living with cancer, through research, support, prevention and early detection.


At Blues on Broadbeach 2024, Cancer Council Queensland is set to transform Federation Park into a shady haven away from the Gold Coast sun, where Sid the Seagull will be there to help festivalgoers slop on sunscreen, seek shade and slide into a sun-safe lifestyle.

For those making their way to Broadbeach this May to enjoy performances from artists like Melissa Etheridge, Samantha Fish & Jesse Dayton, Ana Popovic, Eric Bibb and more, don’t forget to bring along that sunscreen, a hat and water bottle to stay hydrated under the Gold Coast sun! 


If you’d like to support all the important work of Cancer Council Queensland, you can donate to their critical research, prevention and support services here. Together, we can make sure no Queenslander navigates cancer alone!
