The weather on the Gold Coast might be warming up, but it’s about to get a whole lot cooler with Broadbeach Alliance today announcing an enviable line-up of stars who will play at the 2017 Blues on Broadbeach Music Festival driven by Frizelles.
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 LAST DRINKS.
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.
Queensland Minister for Tourism and Major Events Kate Jones said the calibre of performers would be a huge drawcard for visitors.
“The Blues on Broadbeach Music Festival is a highlight on Queensland’s calendar of events which draws visitors from around Australia and overseas,” Ms Jones said.
“This year’s event delivered an economic boost of around $20 million into the Gold Coast economy and next year is set to be even bigger.”
“I congratulate Tourism and Events Queensland (TEQ), Broadbeach Alliance and the event partners for bringing this highly successful festival to the Gold Coast.”
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 ‘Lost in France’, ‘Have You Seen The Rain’ and ‘Holding Out for A Hero’ popular throughout the world.
Having won two Grammy Awards and three Brit Award nominations for her work, and with smash hits ‘It’s A Heartache’, and ‘Total Eclipse of The Heart’ still among the best-selling singles of all time Bonnie’s performance at Blues on Broadbeach is one not to be missed.
Arguably Australia’s best guitarist, IAN MOSS will also bring his unforgettable sound and silken voice to the Blues on Broadbeach Music Festival next year. Moss will return to the Festival after last year’s widely successful Cold Chisel National tour.
The Blues on Broadbeach Music Festival is supported by the Queensland Government through TEQ’s It’s Live! In Queensland major events calendar and will present four massive days and nights of Australian and International Blues acts from May 18-21 next year.
