THERE’S MORE TO SPRINGTIME

THERE'S MORE TO SPRINGTIME

good times and FREE live music
are just the beginning

The cleaners
by shock therapy productions

A living room sits in mid-air, 7 metres above the ground. It is completely white. Two cleaners in white uniforms inspect the room, taking great pains to maintain the white room’s perfect whiteness. On the ground below sits a giant slingshot. Beside the slingshot, a large collection of neon paint balloons. Let the games begin.

 

Fights, meltdowns, existential crisis; who knows what will unfold, how
The Cleaners will rectify the situation, and what secrets they will uncover in the process. The Cleaners is a brand-new durational performance installation by multi award winning contemporary performance makers, Shock Therapy Productions.

SPRINGTIME SKATE PLAZA

Watch some of Queensland’s best skateboarders try the SPRINGTIME SKATE PLAZA, with Pop Up obstacles dropped into the middle of the festival vibes from the team at Kingswood Creative. Shaped to turn some of the Gold Coast’s untapped streets spots along the esplanade into a skateable plaza surrounded by music and good times.

 

Australian & New Zealand skaters such as Tommy Fynn, Nixen Osborne, Mike Lawry and more will descend on “the spot” to excite your eyeballs with skateboarding wizardry and the party continues with local south east teams from PRECINCT and Brisbane’s PARLIAMENT skateshops, unleashing on custom planter boxes, ledges, kickers, china banks, slappy curbs and more.

Come see the GC strip transformed into a street skaters paradise.
