Oceanfest18 has come and gone and the organisers wish to express their gratitude to everyone who helped make this years event a success.

When we first set out our vision for the GoldCoast Oceanfest over 20 years ago, we had a midsummer mindset of idyllic weather, an arena full of happy smiling faces enjoying themselves and one another's company. Watching in awe the professional athletes who showcase their sports with dynamism and guts, whilst taking in the Apres events and indulging world-class music.  

Perhaps the chance to catch up with old faces perhaps not seen since the last festival, chatting about who is on the music bill this year and reminiscing about last years stand outs. Starting new friendships and creating memories that will last long into the cold dark days of winter.

Sharing in engaging experiences whilst being offered new opportunities to try out something that could be life-changing whether it be surfing or yoga. Learning new things about how other folks live their lives in a positive and uplifting fashion, then letting that newly found knowledge distil and consider its potential impact on a change in your own lifestyle.

Well…… it just happened in Croyde at the 20th GoldCoast Oceanfest weekend. 

To our sponsors, we extend a huge handshake for taking the plunge and we sincerely hope your commitment has been rewarded many times over.

The atmosphere and positive vibe was a credit, not only to those who attended but also to those landowners who facilitate access for everyone's enjoyment, least not forgetting the brilliant Croyde residents who embrace the event for the mid-summer weekend each year.

To the hundreds of athletes who sought both the glory and silverware, we salute your prowess and wish you a summer of top-class performances.

All our headliners rocked the house and Jess Glynne’s set will live long in the memory banks.

What a fabulous group of sponsors, charities, educationalists, athletes, musos, colleagues, creatives, chefs, service staff, visitors and supporters in such a fantastic setting. We are so lucky to be able to share the journey with each and every one of you.

Dates for 2019 are 21-23 June and we cannot wait to do it all again!

A massive Mahalo to you all.
