|Beach stage at Surfers|
Last years impromptu beach stage has given way to a permanent affair care of the foreshore renos at Surfers. When there’s no concert on you wouldn’t realise this thing was a stage, but when several thousand women are pressing forward to swoon at Pete Murray you realise what a great venue we’ve created down there.
The night finished with fireworks. No photos. Fireworks are a bit like watching your mate fall off his bike, you really have to be there. Doesn’t stop the TV from televising fireworks each New Year.

The One Way Festival was a showcase for local bands and artists combined with a street market and various other distractions. The “Zero Tolerance” Gold Coast Council somehow overlooked the many street artists attending and ignored the fact that we celebrated as they spray-painted a wall. This year look forward to Beastman doing the same. Come down and watch the artist in motion. The music on the night was some best I’ve seen on the Gold Coast, a highlight being Brothers, who I think have sadly disbanded though I hope I’m wrong.
