Global music organisation, Sofarsounds, has launched on the Gold Coast, giving local artists a platform to showcase their musical talent.

The Gold Coast is following in the footsteps of other Australian cities such as Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.

The organisation will be hosting intimate gigs in pop up locations across the coast, anywhere from local bars and shops, to people’s houses or even bedrooms.

Sofarsounds Organiser, Miss Dani Miller, believes it will revolutionise music in the local area which has previously been overshadowed by Brisbane’s buzzing live music scene.

“There’s only a small amount of venues on the coast where you can go to just listen to the artist”, said Miss Miller.

“At Sofar gigs, artists can connect to an audience that is there purely to see them”.

With tourism figures expected to rise in the wake of the Commonwealth Games, there will be plenty of evening entertainment on offer for people seeking good quality, original music produced by local artists.
