After a two-year hiatus, the city is buzzing once again with the glitz and glamour of Australian TV’s night of nights as the Logies roll into town.
Famous faces have touched down at The Star Gold Coast from around the country in the lead-up to Sunday’s awards show, with stylists, makeup artists and fashion designers working overtime getting those red carpet looks ready for Sunday.
Last night four days of festivities commenced when some of the country’s most famous foodies descended on Nineteen at The Star for an indulgent ‘Taste of Television dinner prepared by Head Chef Mitch Tucker.
The signature degustation rivalled some of the dishes served on hit television shows like Masterchef, incorporating the favourite ingredients of former cooking show contestants, including the likes of Sarah Tiong, Jess Lemon, Reece Hignell and Tessa Boersma.
Tonight guests at each of The Star’s signature bars and restaurants will also be able to enjoy The Star’s limited edition Gold Logie cocktail. A light yet indulgent combination of glitter-infused gin, cucumber, elderflower, and lemon inspired by the awards show’s iconic golden statue, the ‘Silver Screen Sparkler’ will be available at Atrium Bar, Kiyomi, Isoletto Pool Club and Garden Kitchen & Bar throughout the weekend.
For those looking for an extra dose of star treatment, Queensland’s own former Bachelor, Matty J, will be making a surprise cameo behind the bar at Atrium for lucky locals that happen to be in the popular night spot from 6 pm, Friday 17 June.
On Saturday 18 June, The Star’s newly opened Isoletto Pool Club on the level six leisure deck will play host to an exclusive celebrity wellness session led by famed local personality, Pia Muehlenbeck. The pilates class will be followed by coffee, brunch and a dip in the pool alongside the stars – including SAS contestant and Australian ironman, Jett Kenny.
In true red-carpet style, Saturday 18 June will also see one lucky local is also set to be treated to the ultimate star treatment with a $500 personal shopping experience with celebrity stylist Lana Wilkinson, in addition to an all-access pass for them and a friend to The Star’s exclusive Logies viewing party on The Lawn.
And finally, from 2pm on Sunday 19 June the official celebrations begin at the TV WEEK Logies Live Site, a free event hosted on The Lawn. Fans will have a chance to mingle with TV stars with appearances from the biggest names on MAFS, Travel Guides and The Block, enjoy live music – including a performance by headline act The Rogue Traders – at a free event, and then enjoy all the glitz and glamour of the main event with a live telecast of the 2022 TV Week Logies Awards red carpet and awards on the big screen.
