About us

Blues on Broadbeach Music Festival is held in Broadbeach, Gold Coast and is currently in its 21st year, since commencing in 2002.

Showcasing over 4 full days and nights of Authentic Blues acts annually, Broadbeach is home to one of Australia’s most respected Blues music festivals.

The festival features multiple stages and venues across the precinct that are generally non-ticketed to attend.

Fans can expect to see a range of Blues inspired music, whilst wondering through a precinct full of restaurants, cafes and bars to satisfy any food lovers cravings.

The beauty of Blues on Broadbeach is the host of accommodation options that give fans the opportunity to stay within the heart of the festival, with live music at their doorstep.

Major Events Gold Coast

For 19 years, Blues on Broadbeach was proudly produced by the Broadbeach Alliance, however as Broadbeach Alliance merged with both the Surfers Paradise Alliance and Connecting Southern Gold Coast on July 1, 2020 to form Major Events Gold Coast (MEGC), the event now sits with MEGC.

MEGC’s charter is to develop a portfolio of events and festivals which will attract the overnight drive market from Brisbane and the interstate traveller wishing to come to the Gold Coast for an event or festival ultimately generating Visitor Nights and promotion of our destination, as an events and festivals hub.

MEGC is committed to hosting environmentally responsible events, as such we work very closely with event partners to plan and implement festivals which reflect green event best practices.
