Buskers by The Creek have announced a floating bar will feature in the list of attractions at this years’ event.

Secured just offshore from the picturesque venue at Winders Park, Bar Copacabana is not only an event first for Buskers By The Creek but a first for Queensland.

Buskers By The Creek event director Cindy Jensen says she is proud to bring event-goers something fabulous.

“We are so excited to bring festival-goers yet another first with Queensland’s first floating bar at this years’ event.

“We want everyone to be up dancing and having a great time on the water with an exciting line up of DJ’s and acoustic musicians confirmed to play.”

The free, family-friendly festival which is now in its fifth year is set to host more than 300 performers on 16 different stages at the picturesque creekside venue in Currumbin on October 13-14.

Bar Copacabana will be Brazilian-inspired, in-line with the festival’s theme, and host Brazilian acts including DJ CVIO, DJ MAXX R, Brazo Duo, Flavio Correa, Rodrigo Ferraz, and Zambabem Trio.

Guests at the floating bar can enjoy the latest release from Chandon S, a refreshing sparkling concoction served chilled on ice with a twisted orange peel. Byron Bay’s favourite homegrown beverage, Stone and Wood will also be served.

The inclusion of Bar Copacabana will infuse an extra element of outdoor bliss at the waterside festival with event-goers invited to bring their swimmers and floats to enjoy the water.

The creation of the floating attraction will be no small feat with a team of local companies coming on board to make Bar Copacabana happen.

Maclift Cranes have been enlisted with the job of loading Gold Coast Barges specifically constructed panels and gangways onto a semi-trailer with a 20-tonne franna, for Morrow Equipment to transport to the Currumbin location.

Morrow Equipment rigging supervisor Joel Jensen said their team is proud to be supporting a great community event.

“A skilled team of barge experts and rigging technicians are involved in helping Cindy bring her vision of another festival first to life and we are proud to have been partnered with the festival since its inception,” said Mr Jensen.

The construction of the module platform will commence on Thursday before the event and take more than 180 hours and a team of seven highly skilled workers to assemble, transport, unload and position the bar in place.

Bar Copacabana will be open at Buskers By The Creek from 10am to 6pm daily.
