Spring has sprung! What a time to be living on the Gold Coast, eh?
Although to be fair there’s never really a terrible time to be living here.
Last month’s Gold Coast Music Awards edition celebrated some of the epic musical talent on the coast in the lead up to what was a fabulous awards ceremony at HOTA, Home of the Arts. ICYMI, jump onto the GCMAs Facebook or Insta for plenty of glamorous snaps from the day and the recorded Livestream, too. And in case you’ve been living under a rock, we’ve included the handy list of winners for you in this mag, too.
This edition sees us celebrate another great event from last month, with local artist Dion Parker featured on the cover. Dion took out the main prize at this year’s SWELL Sculpture Festival, and his story will have you laughing, cheering and maybe even tearing up a little. Be sure to check it out. In other news this month, we chat to Brisbane’s coolest rockers Dead Letter Circus ahead of their upcoming set at Wallapalooza, meet one of the wickedly delightful cast members from Dracula’s, get the goss from some local filmmakers who are killing it OS, suss out an 80s dance party at HOTA-the likes of which you’ve never seen before, champion the Gold Coast women transforming used coffee grounds into gardening gold, give you the heads up on the spookiest Halloween event in town and get a little Mediterranean with our food reviews. Enjoy!
