January gig guide – Live music on the Gold Coast

Tijuana Cartel

January brings with it a heap of live music events for the Gold Coast, with Ball Park Music, British India, Thirsty Merc, Mat McHugh, Kid Kenobi and RUFUS all passing through town.

Fans of waling guitars will be excited about Dinosaur Jr playing a rare show at Miami Shark Bar and lovers of EDM will be making a beeline for Helensvale when the Ministry of Sound reunion tour stops in.

Meanwhile, Ozfest brings crazy summer vibes to Miami Shark Bar on January 28 – with a lineup of major touring acts as well as local stars including Bleach Girls.

There’s two new night markets with live music and DJ offerings – every second Friday at Bundall and every second Saturday at Mermaid. Plus, hometown favourites Karl S Williams and Tijuana Cartel both have special shows at Soundlounge Currumbin.

And, if you want to see something as Gold Coast as it gets, award-winning Hanlon Brothers will play the hill at Burleigh for the 20th anniversary Single Fin Festival on January 8.
