Massive Arts Program announced for SPRINGTIME 2023!

A massive interactive art installation is set to land at Surfers Paradise for SPRINGTIME this 1 – 3 September

After dropping a huge, FREE artist lineup in April that featured the likes of Matt Corby, BENEE, Bag Raiders (DJ Set), Babe Rainbow and heaps more, we’re now also adding a one-of-a-kind Arts Program. Because you can never have too much free entertainment right?!

From Shock Therapy Arts, the brains behind the paint splattered hit ‘The Cleaners’ seen at SPRINGTIME 2022 comes Quest of Chaos. 

A totally new participatory performance installation that’s one part obstacle course, one part live action video game, and one part retro art installation, the Surfers Paradise beachfront will be transformed like you’ve never seen before!

Who would’ve thought you’d see an obstacle course at a music festival? Taking inspiration from Japanese game shows like Takeshi’s Castle, and retro video games like Super Mario, players will get to put their physical and mental skills to the test as they attempt to defeat King Chaos and his gang of interdimensional troublemakers. Who’s in?


Also joining in on the fun are artists YEAHYEAHCHLOE and Malara Rise, who’ll be adding some gorgeous Spring colours to Surfers Paradise with their live murals.

Born in Daegu, South Korea and raised in regional NSW, YEAHYEAHCHLOE’s signature 90s aesthetic has led to eye-catching works for everyone to enjoy, including the likes of Gucci, Google, Twix and Nike.


Twin sisters Britney & Stefanie Noffke of Malara Rise will also be bringing their unique artistic skills to SPRINGTIME.

Drawing inspiration from local flora and fauna and turning it into a style of comtemporary cultural storytelling, the sisters create art that conveys their connection to the Yuggera – Minjungbal – Nyanbul – Ugarapul land in which they grew up on.

If you haven’t already booked your accommodation, get in quick now before spaces run low! With just over two months to go, we can’t wait to say goodbye to winter and welcome in the warm vibes of Spring. The music is just the beginning at SPRINGTIME!

Good Times Guaranteed
