Kicking off on Thursday November 12, BLEACH* will run for 11 action-packed days, with audiences invited to experience the best of the city through one-of-a-kind contemporary art, live music, cabaret, theatre, dance and storytelling, with the magic to unfold across three key precincts – Burleigh Heads, Chevron Island and the Botanic Gardens.

After a few tumultuous months, which saw the festival’s original August date rescheduled, we’re now just weeks away from the start of BLEACH* Festival, which will officially commence at first light (5:00 am) on Thursday November 12 with an unmissable sunrise ceremony by Luther Cora and the Yugambeh dancers at the Burleigh Bora and Speaking Circle in Justin’s Park. There will be a flurry of activity at Burleigh Heads throughout the festival, with a series of day-and-night events including the one-day-only Block Party on Sunday November 15 – a celebration of First Nations artists and the local music scene – featuring live sounds by Jesswar, The Voice runner-up Siala and beat makers Wildheart.

The second major BLEACH* hub, Chevron Island, will give arts and music lovers a hit of adrenaline with theatre in soon-to-be-demolished units, oversized artwork by Glennys Briggs in abandoned houses, and mind-bending acts by contortionist Shannen Jones, aka ‘the girl with no bones’.

The Gold Coast Botanic Gardens will be the perfect backdrop for BLEACH* Festival’s closing event, with the lush precinct to host an afternoon of live music by Southern Cross Soloists.
