Kirtan Under the Stars
On January 28, enjoy a night of community, music, and meditation at Burleigh Beach. Kirtan Under the Stars is an incredible night of soulful music that uplifts you. Singing and dancing under the stars, listening to uplifting music, and chanting a sacred mantra is all part of the ultimate feel-good spiritual experience.
Therefore, take your family and friends into the experience. Bring a picnic and enjoy this special evening amidst the sparkling fairy lights and lush greenery.
Need more music? Experience Sanctuary Sound’s Sunday Sessions. Enjoy a leisurely afternoon of delicious food and beverages, live music, and plenty of fun for the whole family while the kids participate in the weekly art sessions.
Sanctuary Sounds, held every Sunday from 2 pm to 6 pm on the Village Green outside Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, features a local artist each week.
Here’s another event! For the All Waves Fest – Music Festival, you should make advance plans if you’re a true music enthusiast!
All Waves Fest – Music Festival
The All Waves Festival will take place at Burleigh Bazaar in Burleigh Heads. Be there at 3 o’clock on February 18. Market stalls are also accessible from 3 to 6 o’clock. Check out the different pottery, clothing, and art items.
Catch all the 11 local musicians, such as First Beige. Brisbane-based artist First Beige creates music using jazzy tones, textural synth layers, and intertwined vocal harmonies supported by pulsating house rhythms.
Another band to anticipate is The Vernons. With their thunderous riffs and rousing, raspy vocals, the Queensland-based quartet has enthralled Australian audiences for the past ten years, turning them into one of Queensland’s most enduring live acts and earning praise in the process.
Reserve your Isle of Palms accommodation for a lovely holiday and convenient access.
