The Southern Gold Coast region is a premier location where natural beauty connects with high quality entertainment, including live music and international festivals. A project partnering Connecting Southern Gold Coast and the Centre for Tourism, Leisure and Work, Southern Cross University, has developed with the aim of stimulating economic development through the coordinated provision of music. The project has been titled ‘Southern Gold Coast Music Hub.’
A Hub is an identified region containing high-levels of interactions and cooperation and exists for the purpose of increasing collective output.
Southern Gold Coast Music Hub applies these principles to music-related activity, involving local music performers, ensembles and DJs; venues, restaurants and festivals; industry groups, training institutions, tourism groups and community groups working together to develop the live music industry.
