we no longer call gold coast home ....

After six hugely successful years, multi award wins and a growing reputation of being one of the world's best busking events, we've packed up and moved to a home that's embraced our craziness, boldness, uniqueness and willingness to grow on an international scale in 2020 and beyond! 

Hold off on those room bookings, we'll be announcing our new digs in the not too distant future.  Our website will be updated very soon, with applications becoming live by the end of February!  Stay tuned!


'Battle of the Buskers' officially kicks off our festival of events at Currumbin Pub on Friday 18th October.  Our top festival singer-songwriters will go guitar to banjo to battle it out for the 'Totally Talented' title.   Finalists to be announced shortly.  With limited venue capacity and a sell-out in previous years, early bird ticket purchases are recommended so you don't miss out!   

18th October // Doors 6pm // Tickets available here



Be under no illusion and prepare yourself for the glitz and glam, vivacious energy and extravagent party with over 300 performers set to entertain.  

From comedy to circus stunts, from award winning musicians and talented teens, from swing to sword swallowing, "Buskers by the Creek" this year will see even more incredible entertainment, jaw dropping tricks, daring world record attempts and waterborne magic.  Due to popular demand, we're also bringing the floating half-pipe back with BMX and skateboarding daredevils preparing to ignite!  

Hot from his appearance on Australia's Got Talent, prolific world record breaker Space Cowboy joins Bendy Em, Melon the Human, Kiki and The Great Dave and the Unicycling Unicorn from Canada, just some of our world class street performers gearing up to share their love.  Audiences will also be captivated by the raw sounds of 2019 Byron Bay Bluesfest Busking Champions, Palm Valley and also 'discover the undiscovered' with a colourful collection of emerging singer/songwriters thrown into the mix.  

An eclectic group of performance artists will be painting and creating their masterpieces and an international menu to please all foodies will also be on offer, with well-known local restaurants dishing up with festival flair.

19th and 20th October // 10am - 6pm // Winders Park, Currumbin // FREE ENTRY



To say farewell to Loveland 2019, you're invited to our official after party at Balter Brewery where you'll get up close and personal with world travelled busker, Tristan O'Meara who will perform amongst an exhibition of his finest didgeridoo handicrafts.  Rarely performing these days, this is one of very few opportunities that you'll have to experience Tristan live.  Ticket price includes entry into our official after party, 1 x Balter Beer, entertainment from Tristan and his band, secret support acts and hundreds of smiles and good times! 

20th October // 6pm // Balter Brewery // Purchase tickets here

Pen the 18th, 19th and 20th October in your diaries so you don't miss out on another weekend of MYSTIQUE, MAGIC AND MARVEL!
