2023 BLEACH* Festival Pacific Airshow: Must-See Events on the Gold Coast

July 11, 2023

Get ready for two fantastic events on the Gold Coast in August! The BLEACH* Festival, one of Australia’s premier and most thrilling site-specific contemporary art programs, is first on the list.

2023 BLEACH* Festival

August 3 – 13
This festival is where you should be if you enjoy art. BLEACH* welcomes renowned Australian and international collaborators, honours the city’s most innovative and daring artists, and engages a broad audience through diverse events. BLEACH* seeks to create extraordinary arts and cultural experiences that defy assumptions, transform perceptions, and provide a unique and authentic feeling of place, inspiring residents and visitors alike.

The 12th annual BLEACH* Festival will transpire with additional city-wide activations in North Burleigh, Broadbeach Cultural Precinct, Gold Coast Botanical Gardens, HOTA, Home of the Arts, and Currumbin Valley from August 3 – 13. You can catch the following events and more.

  • Roller Coaster, HOTA Outdoor Stage: From August 3 to 5, a new music theatre play called Roller Coaster will be fierce, emotional, and explosive. It has humour, heart, and a driving live soundtrack.
  • The Imaginary Aviary, HOTA Gallery: Visit this one-of-a-kind intersection of music and art on August 5 for an auditory journey. Witness Vanessa Tomlinson’s curatorial vision for HOTA Gallery come to life as musicians appear among the installations and spontaneously start jam sessions sparked by the gallery’s extraordinary collection of art, resonant acoustics, and classic design.
  • BLEACH* at Broadbeach, Broadbeach Cultural Precinct: Experience awe and delight from August 10 to 12 at the festival garden, where no two evenings are the same. Explore the enchantment of burlesque, theatre, stand-up comedy, drag, spoken word, and much more at this multi-venue pop-up event. Oh, and bring your appetite because various food trucks will be available.
  • BLEACH* at Botanic Gardens, Gold Coast Regional Botanic Gardens: Discover a carefully picked mix of musical treats at the Gold Coast Regional Botanic Gardens from August 11 to August 13. The Botanic Gardens will be in another realm where rhythm and melody come to life. The best singers, musicians, and composers from Australia are honoured at an outdoor venue nestled among the greenery.
