Traditionally held in April, the 2020 version of Bleach* Festival was at first rescheduled for August – though, ongoing COVID-19 restrictions forced the team to again shift the date. The festival, now in its ninth year, will officially kick off on Thursday November 12 and run through until Sunday November 22, bringing 11 days of contemporary arts, culture and entertainment to the south east.
Rosie Denis, CEO and artistic director of Placemakers* Gold Coast (the organisers of Bleach*) said the team is putting the finishing touches on the program, which will feature “a range of contemporary experiences performed by a stellar line-up of renowned Australian artists”. Last year, Bleach* Festival transformed beaches, Gold Coast waterways, parklands and civic gathering places across the city into playgrounds for contemporary performances and artistic installations. This year, the 11-day program (due to be announced in August) will be held in three renowned precincts – Burleigh, Chevron Island and the Gold Coast Regional Botanic Gardens in Benowa. Stay tuned for the program announcement!
