Plans are underway for an open-air concert venue at The Star Gold Coast that will deliver a stellar new entertainment offering capable of attracting front line local and overseas music acts.
The Star Entertainment Group CEO Matt Bekier unveiled the proposal aimed at ensuring the Gold Coast can compete with Australia’s major capital cities to host top performers worldwide. “We have spoken to a lot of people well-connected to the music industry,” Matt said. “An outdoor venue that can stage concerts of small and large scale would enhance the Gold Coast as a music destination. Our plans include curating a calendar of events, from full-scale concerts by world-class bands and performers to family-friendly picnic events like Carols at Christmas, to smaller more intimate offerings like string quartets. A major part of this plan is to bring to life Gold Coast Bulletin Centenary Park, across the canal from The Star Gold Coast. The way we intend to position the stage will enable people in the park to be close to the action, have a great view and be part of the overall atmosphere. What a wonderful example of the Gold Coast lifestyle to be able to listen to concerts across the water, whether it’s rock, jazz, classical, or an event that appeals to all ages.”
Matt says the Gold Coast is home to an increasing number of major events. “Creating an opportunity to further elevate the Gold Coast as part of the Australian music landscape is exciting.” The Star Gold Coast theatre is an established venue and has regular performances by leading musical acts, but Mr Bekier says this outdoor venue would soar the Coast to new heights.
The outdoor concert venue proposal is still taking shape and would require necessary approvals before it could commence.
