GoldCoast 2016 firing from all barrels
Folks, we said that like a good El Nino swell it would come thick and fast. We are stoked to announce our headline acts for our 18th consecutive midsummer production of GoldCoast Oceanfest on 17,18,19 June.
First up on 17th June, our Friday headliner needs no introduction, it’s DJ Fresh. How Love Begins – the new single with High Contrast and Dizzee Rascal is tearing up the sound waves having been first played on BBC Radio 1 show by Annie Mack as her hottest record and the track is released today (5th Feb) on UK iTunes. The man has over 2.5 million record sales, two number 1 singles and a further two top 6 singles to his name including Hot Right Now featuring Rita Ora and Gravity with the Brit Award winning Ella Eyre.
Paddling in on Saturday 18th it’s a huge GoldCoast shout out to Sunset Sons. Having opened for Imagine Dragons across their huge 30-date UK and European arena tour through Autumn 2015, Sunset Sons have announced they will back their album debut with a sizeable 14-date UK tour. We feel a strong swell of support as things are definitely going to be happening for these brilliant surfing musicians. The boys have announced the release of their debut album ‘Very Rarely Say Die’ for 1st of April 2016. You would be a fool to miss that!
Taking off on Sunday 19th June we are truly delighted to share the beauty and melancholy of KT Tunstall. This internationally acclaimed singer songwriter and musician originates from Scotland and has no less than four albums, 4 million sales, one Ivor Novello and one Brit Award under her belt. Such a talented lass from north of the border is a perfect fit for our laid back Sunday vibe.
