City says hi to Diamond Jubilee birthday

11 June 2019

Grab your party hats Gold Coasters – the City has turned 60 and you’re invited to celebrate.

Special guest Amy Shark will headline the free Diamond Jubilee celebrations, joining an all Gold Coast line-up featuring The Lamplights, Eliza & The Delusionals and the Hanlon Brothers.

Mayor Tom Tate said 60 never looked this good.  

“The Gold Coast has grown into a thriving city over the last six decades.

“While we look back fondly on our history, the City’s future is bright and I’m excited for what is to come. 

“What better way to celebrate than with the Gold Coast’s very own Amy Shark, a talented Gold Coast line-up, some local food trucks and of course a spectacular fireworks display to finish the night,” said Mayor Tate. 

“Grab your mates and head to Broadwater Parklands on Saturday 13 July.”

Amy Shark said she was excited to headline the City’s birthday bash. 

“I adore the Gold Coast and I’m excited to come home to perform at my home town where it all began.

“There is nothing better than a Gold Coast party”.

Amy Shark recently won Artist of the Year, Live Act of the Year and Release of the Year at last month’s Gold Coast Music Awards. 

The accolades add to a growing list, including 2019 Song of the Year at the 2019 APRA Awards and Best Female Artist at the 2018 ARIA Awards.
