If you could bottle a beachsidefestival and pour it out each year against the backdrop of a sun-drenched Atlantic, then the multi-award-winning GoldCoast Oceanfest might be just the brew to choose.
It’s big enough to create a great party atmosphere, yet small enough to not be overwhelming.
Oceanfest blends a potentially intoxicating, eclectic and laid-back mix of quality music, exhilarating surf, action-packed sports, locally sourced food and family‑friendly fun.
Check out our 2018 aftermovie to see how it all went down last year!
