It has been over a thousand days since Supercars last took to the streets of Surfers Paradise, but with under forty days to go until the event returns, organisers promise it’s going to be the biggest and best yet.
Earlier this month, guests, including music acts from this year’s lineup, government officials, VIPs, Olympic Athletes, sponsors and some of Supercar’s biggest names, gathered at Isoletto Pool Club at The Dorsett to launch the official countdown to this year’s event.
Hosted by pit lane reporter and Supercars favourite Riana Crehan, the crowd was treated to a few cocktails while being entertained by musical acts like DJ total Eclipse and Brook Evers, who will also be part of the massive GC500 sounds lineup for this year’s event.
Organisers then took to the stage to give everyone a taste of what we can expect with the return of the event, Mayor Tom Tate boasted he expected the crowd to be the biggest yet.
“The Boost Mobile Gold Coast 500 is an opportunity to showcase the best of Supercars to a global audience, and we are thrilled with what is in store this year,” Supercars CEO Shane Howard said.
“This event is the biggest annual sporting event in Queensland, and we want to make sure it’s the biggest party of the year for fans who’ve been waiting since 2019 to get back to Surfers Paradise.
“Three huge nights of performances is something we have never done on the Gold Coast, so it’s exciting that we have secured some of the biggest acts getting around to take to the Club 500 stage.”
The event will see some of Australia’s hottest DJs and international stars take to the Club 500 stage on Macintosh Island on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening of October’s event, headlined by Bliss n Eso, Carl Cox & Eric Powell’s Mobile Disco and Sneaky Sound System.
Aussie hip hop giants Bliss n Eso will get the party started on Friday 28th October and will be supported by DJ Total Eclipse.
Saturday’s performance will see Carl Cox & Eric Powell’s Mobile Disco return to the stage where they lit up the Gold Coast in 2019.
The pair will put on a trademark show for the Boost Mobile Gold Coast 500 fans.
On Sunday night, following the final race of the event, Aussie superstars Sneaky Sound System will close the event with a stellar performance of some of their biggest hits supported by international DJ star Brooke Evers and Kota Banks, one of the rising stars of Australia’s electro club scene.
