There are some big acts passing through the Gold Coast in March and they feature in the More Gold Coast Gig Guide alongside some of the city’s most prolific songwriters and performers.

The biggest news for southern Gold Coast is the addition of Cooly Beachfest to the festival calendar. Taking place Saturday 18 March with five bands over five hours, the event takes over Queen Elizabeth Park while the Quiksilver Pro takes over the seas. The lineup features The Rubens, The Beautiful Girls, Dorsal Fins, Bec Sandridge and The Vanns.

Other bands stopping in at the Gold Coast as part of national tours include The Living End, The Waifs, Kingswood, Urthboy, Bobby AluBaby Animals and Goons of Doom.

And on the local front, Koi Boys and Hanlon Brothers hit NightQuarter for Kiwi Karnival on 4 March, The James Street Preachers are at Cambus Wallace for a month of Wednesdays, Darkcell are at Hard Rock Café on 3 March, Summertime Sessions in the Village continue their run on Fridays in Mudgeeraba, Felicity Lawless takes her band to Miami Marketta later in the month and Black Rabbit George is at NightQuarter on 10 March.
