In a crucial step forward for the return of multi-award-winning Blues on Broadbeach in 2021, the festival’s COVID Safe Plan has been approved!

Featuring an incredible line-up including Grammy Award-winning Aussie rock legends Wolfmother, critically acclaimed Christine Anu, Blues icon C.W. Stoneking and Kiwi roots reggae outfit The Black Seeds, Blues on Broadbeach 2021 will see a re-imagined and innovative COVID safe festival design come to life in Broadbeach on May 20-23, 2021.

Festival Director Mark Duckworth can’t wait for the return of live music to the Gold Coast.

“It was fantastic news for the Blues on Broadbeach’s COVID Safe Plan to be given the tick of approval, as the planning for 2021 has been a totally new experience for us.”  

“It is a credit to the whole team. We had so much support from the fans and artists to keep at it. We’re so excited to share it with you.  I know it’s going to be a special event.”

With the support of the Restart Investment to Sustain and Expand (RISE) Fund – an Australian Government initiative, the event will return safely for attendees and artists, featuring a combination of Park Stages, Dine & Watch precincts and partnered venues.

The Park Stages will be enclosed and daily check in and wrist banding will be required prior to entry.  Park Stages will have limited seating available, food and licensed bar areas, and a dedicated entry and exit.

The Dine & Watch precincts will see restaurants and bars extending out onto Surf Parade and Oracle Boulevard to ramp up the Blues on Broadbeach celebrations. COVID check-in and requirements will be specific to each venue’s COVID plan.
