Queensland festival Blues On Broadbeach is back for another year, recently sharing one of its most diverse lineups to date.
For years now, festivalgoers have found themselves making the trip up to the coastal confines of the Gold Coast’s Broadbeach for a multi-day experience full of music, sun, and good vibes.
Now, the festival has announced just who will be joining the bill for its 2020 event, with some pretty big names jumping on board.
Kicking things off for the 2020 event is none other than Aussie icon Tommy Emmanuel, who will be bringing his legendary guitar playing to an adoring crowd.
“Nothing compares to playing at home,” Emmanuel explained. “I’ve been looking forward to performing at Blues on Broadbeach for so long. My brother Phil used to perform there a lot over the years and he told me all about it.”

It doesn’t end there though, with the likes of Guatemala’s Gaby Moreno, Karise Eden, Kim Churchill, Bondi Cigars, The Turner Brown Band, Osaka Monaurail, Jeff Lang, and much more joining the exceptional bill.
“Bringing in almost $30 million to the Gold Coast economy every year I’m not surprised to see that the big names keep lining up to be part of this quintessential Gold Coast event,” explained Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate.
“Our calendar of major events continues to grow and Blues on Broadbeach continues to be a favourite among locals and visitors alike.”
“This festival has become part of Broadbeach’s cultural tapestry, the musicians, festival fans and local community all have an ownership over how its weaved,” added Festival Director Mark Duckworth.
“It’s exciting to invite new acts from Australia and around the world to experience the incredible vibe of this event for the first time, whilst still sharing in the history with the artists who have helped us build it from the ground up.”
It all kicks off on Thursday, May 14th next year, and runs until Sunday, May 17th, with plenty more artists still to be announced. Check out the full lineup details below, and be sure to head to the website to grab your tickets.
