Gold Coast, QLD

17 - 28 April 2019

Here we meet again, staring down the eighth annual Bleach* Festival and a new chapter for the City following the historic staging of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.

As the Gold Coast continues to evolve, so too does its Festival, holding a mirror to its ripening and reflecting on the nuances of our culture and the City’s defining moments. 

The 2019 Festival promises to be our most personal and playful yet, honouring our rituals and celebrating the magic of beginnings to herald a new era for the Gold Coast. 

As the beaches, waterways, parklands and civic gathering places becomes a playground for contemporary performance and installation, we call on you to come and play.

Join us throughout April 2019 as we continue to dream and inspire our community and visitors through a 12-day festival of incredible artistic experiences.

Bleach* is your Gold Coast Festival. 

Full program revealed early 2019.
