Paces set to headline the Gold Coast Music Awards

The Gold Coast Music Awards will be held on Surfers Paradise Beach on the 30th of April with Paces, Tijuana Cartel and Felicity Lawless to perform live.

It’s that time of year again when we gear up to roll out the red carpet and celebrate all the great things Gold Coast music scene has to offer.
The Gold Coast Music Awards will be held on the iconic Surfers Paradise Beach on the 30th of April with Paces, Tijuana Cartel and Felicity Lawless to perform live.

Celebrating the cities rising stars and it’s the sixth year of the event is expected to attract 8,000 revellers to the free outdoor concert, as part of the Surfers Paradise Live Festival.

“It’s been so awesome to see the Awards grow over the years,” says Gold Coast Music Awards director, Samantha Morris.

“Not just the community of musicians who are attending and being nominated, but also Gold Coasters coming along to watch our incredible local talent take that massive beachfront stage.” 

The night will be headlined by award-winning producer and DJ, PACES, whose soaring chords, earth-shattering drops and wild live shows have earned much acclaim here and overseas. 

“It’s been really inspiring to see the Gold Coast music scene flourish in recent years,” said PACES, whose performance on Triple J’s Like A Version with Australian music icon, Guy Sebastian, is one of the most popular in history.

“People used to have to move to Sydney or Melbourne to pursue a career in music but these days that’s not the case at all. Gold Coast musicians have been absolutely smashing it and achieving global success. 

“I’m super stoked to be headlining the Awards and kicking off the Surfers Paradise LIVE festival, I’m really looking forward to discovering the next wave of Gold Coast musicians!”

Sharing the stage are energetic world musicians, Tijuana Cartel, who have built a reputation for making beats that span the globe, due in part to their constant international touring schedule, and fiery, bohemian rocker, Felicity Lawless.

In recent years, the Gold Coast has seen national and international exports in ARIA-winning Amy Shark, Grammy nominee FISHER, and folk phenomenon Hollow Coves, proving the Coast to be a hotspot for creative gold.
