Gold Coast Live Music

After a hard day on the beach what better way to spend the evening than listening to live music. From large music venues that attract big names to intimate spaces in cafés  where live jazz, Latin and folk can be heard, the Gold Coast has a range of live music venues. We’ve listed 7 that cover the gamut.
