Blues on Broadbeach drops first lineup announcement for 2017

Hold onto your fedoras, Gold Coast, cause Blues on Broadbeach 2017 is gonna blow you away.

Broadbeach Alliance today announced the line-up of stars who will play at the 2017 Blues on Broadbeach Music Festival driven by Frizelles. And wouldn’t you know it? Our very own Gold Coast Music Awards 2016 Artist of the Year Hussy Hicks and Gold Coast / Brisbane groovers Cheap Fakes are among the acts to catch.

While we couldn’t quite catch up with the Hussies (given that they’re currently taking Germany by storm), we’re sure they’ll be pumped to be back on home turf playing at one of the city’s favourite events. As for ska-funkers Cheap Fakes, it looks like 2017 is already set to be yet another non-stop whirlwind of touring and festivals.

International superstar Bonnie Tyler will headline the impressive list of performers which also includes Australian legend Ian Moss, US act Slim Jim Phantom Trio, Ray Beadle, Kevin Borich, and Cash Savage and the The Last Drinks.

With a career spanning four decades, Bonnie Tyler will bring her instantly identifiable voice to Blues on Broadbeach in 2017. Bonnie’s music has underscored the lives of generations, with hits like Total Eclipse of the Heart and Holding Out for A Hero popular throughout the world.

Broadbeach Alliance Chief Executive Officer Jan McCormick said the team were busily putting the finishing touches on the event, and told festival fans to expect even more surprises when further details on the full bill are released early next year.

“We are extremely proud to announce this brilliant line-up, and I’m sure that this versatile group of artists will attract an enormous crowd to next year’s festival,” Mrs McCormick said.

“Visitation numbers are increasing every year and we are expecting this trend to continue, with thousands of people already travelling from interstate and overseas for the event,” she continued.

We’re already salivating for the next announcement!

Blues on Broadbeach is a whopper of a free event, presenting four huge days and nights of music from 18 – 21 May 2017. For more information including the full current lineup announcement, visit
