Its all happening on the Gold Coast in August
Pagan Independent Music Festival August 1 and 2, 2015
From Pagan prog rock to the sweet sounds of jazz at Broadbeach, August on the Gold Coast is certainly set to be an eclectic affair.
The Pagan Independent Music Festival, one of the region’s emphatically alternative events, hits Country Paradise Parklands, Nerang, on August 1 and 2. Whether you’re involved in Paganism, or just a fan of interesting live music, it’s worth a look. Expect a subversive mix of indigenous Pagan tunes and modern music, including rock, folk, psychedelic, Celtic, blues and more.
Broadbeach Jazz Festival August 15 and 16, 2015
Just a fortnight later, the Broadbeach Jazz Festival will draw large crowds to outdoor and indoor stages throughout the Gold Coast suburb. Hosted by the organisers of the popular Blues on Broadbeach and Broadbeach Country Music Festivals, the free event’s sure to captivate audiences with even a passing interest in the genre.
Conveniently, The Grand Apartments at Labrador is just a short drive from the hustle and bustle of Broadbeach and Nerang. Situated in a central location close to a variety of leisure and dining options and, of course, the region’s ever-popular theme parks, it’s a popular option for families, groups and solo travellers.
Seniors Week on the Gold Coast August 15 to 23, 2015
If you’re looking for something a little different to Pagan-powered beats and Broadbeach-based jazz, Seniors Week on the Gold Coast will also be offering up an array of events aimed at celebrating the contributions and achievements of the Gold Coast’s 73,000 strong senior population. Ranging from the Mayor’s Senior Week Variety Concert to a host of activities organised by local community organisations, it’s a massive event.
Expect to find a senior’s expo highlighting local services, activities and products, exercise classes, luncheons, sporting events, musical showcases, technology workshops and dozens of other interesting diversions.
If you’ve decided to hit the Gold Coast for the popular event, which will be extensively detailed at www.goldcoast.qld.gov.au in coming weeks, it’s recommended you take the time to check out some of the region’s acclaimed restaurants, leisure and shopping districts, which are scattered throughout the seaside towns and leafy suburbs of the famed holiday region.
Meanwhile, If you’re planning to visit the Pagan Independent Music Festival, you’d be amiss if you didn’t immerse yourself in some of the cultural ins and outs of the event. Aside from the obvious musical drawcards, expect to come across a range of workshops and other experiences, including meditation, dance and discussions about Paganism and its extensive history.

If you’re interested in something a bit more mainstream, Broadbeach Jazz Festival has you covered. While the line-up’s yet to be announced, if last year’s talented performers are anything to go by it’ll be an outrageously good time for jazz aficionados, or anyone chasing some chilled out vibes. And since the festival’s situated directly in the heart of Broadbeach’s CBD, you can kick back in any number of relaxed bars, restaurants and other establishments to soak up the buzzing atmosphere.
