Australians are known for their eclectic taste in music. They are fond of the arts too. That’s why it’s not surprising for them to have the Blues on Broadbeach.

What the Festival Is About

Blues on Broadbeach is a celebration and commemoration of one of the best music styles in history: the blues. Hundreds of people will troop to the beach to listen to nothing but feel-good music from local and international bands. It’s also common for the organizers to bring A-list musicians from the United States, such as Grammy Award winners and composers. It is normally held during the month of May and is a three-day event.

What to Do

The relaxing vibe of the beach and the song can do great wonders for your weary soul. You can sit among the chairs or perhaps on the sand while you listen to some of your favorite blues tunes. You can also check out the many stalls along the beach, which will serve light fares and gourmet meals. There will also be several arts and crafts for those who want to take home something tangible back home. Beer is overflowing in licensed venues.

The beach itself can also be a venue for several activities. In the morning or afternoon you can walk along the patrolled shores or do water activities such as jet-skiing, swimming, kayaking, snorkeling, and fishing. A great idea is to charter a catamaran for a sunset cruise or unique dining experience.

After you’re done with the music, you can head to Conrad Jupiters, which holds one of the biggest casinos in the country. You can also proceed to Diamond Beach for more leisurely activities at the beach. Children will surely have a lot of fun at the Victoria Park, where you can also set up a picnic. Gold Coast Convention Center sometimes has exhibits you can catch.

Be part of the music festival. Next year, 2011, will be one of the biggest as it celebrates its tenth year. The blues event will then be held from May 26 to 29.
