The Gold Coast’s signature contemporary arts festival announces brand new dates for 2020!

Bleach* Festival | June 2020

In the wake of COVID-19 event cancellations, Placemakers* Gold Coast – the city’s leading independent arts organisation – has just announced that their signature Bleach* Festival will officially take place from 12 – 22 November 2020!

Finally, a major event that you can actually attend!

The iconic contemporary arts festival, which was initially scheduled for August this year, will now be hosted from 12-22 November, one of the Gold Coast’s only major events to proceed in 2020.

Placemakers* Gold Coast CEO and Artistic Director, Rosie Dennis says “back in March we wrote to our festival followers saying that we were optimistically planning to proceed with Bleach* Festival in August this year. Since that time, we have explored a range of different options to do just that.

“We’re very pleased to announce that Bleach* Festival will return in November 2020 with a range of contemporary experiences performed by a stellar line-up of renowned Australian artists.

“We’re now putting the finishing touches on the re-imagined program with a full line-up of artists and events to be announced in early August – which we are certain will entice and delight audiences across the Gold Coast and beyond!”

Last year, Bleach* Festival transformed beaches, Gold Coast waterways, parklands and civic gathering places across the city into playgrounds for contemporary performances and artistic installations.

Now in its ninth year, Bleach* Festival has become synonymous with large-scale exhibits, award-winning dance, eye-popping cabaret, free live music and unique, thought-provoking and off-the-wall performances.

Rosie Dennis has today revealed Gold Coast’s three precincts for site-specific festival experiences in 2020.

“We are excited to reveal that in 2020, Bleach* Festival will deliver 11-days of entertainment across three major precincts including Burleigh, Chevron Island and one of the city’s best kept locations, the Gold Coast Regional Botanic Gardens in Benowa”.

“As our most valued supporters, partners, comrades, friends and family, we encourage you to visit placemakers.org.au, sign up to our e-newsletter and social pages to stay up to date with the official Bleach* program launch, plus you can see what else we’ve been up to.

The full re-imagined program with a full line-up of artists and events for this year’s Bleach* Festival will be announced in just over a month.
