Hundreds of Guitarists. One Outdoor Stage.
HOTA and City of Gold Coast present one massive night of rock, on one of the Gold Coast’s most iconic stages.
200 everyday rockstars (that’s right – a literal band of 200 guitarists) will perform on HOTA’s Outdoor Stage alongside a stellar line up of Aussie rock icons including Sarah McLeod (The SuperJesus), Dave Gleeson (The Screaming Jets), The Good Band (feat. Members of Cheap Fakes, George and Wolfmother), and a slew of other special guests, (think marching bands, flash mobs, choirs, special effects we’ve got it all!), hosted by special guest MC Myf Warhurst.
Whether you’re bringing along someone for their first ever gig or throwing back memories of throwing back memories of your fave concerts in years past – this epic event is a celebration of live music, rock and roll, and the rebellious Gold Coast spirit.
Bring your picnic blanket, wear your favourite band t-shirt (or your favourite rock outfit) - to those about to rock, we salute you!
