A NEW FESTIVAL OF PERFORMANCE AND ART…
Music, theatre, art, film, and even a dance party or two – HOTA UNDERGROUND is all about big ideas, brave artists, shared moments and spaces in-between, from 15-17 July.
It’s HOTA’s newest art festival featuring three nights of performance in HOTA’s most intimate venues including the newly re-invented Old Gallery spaces (Studio 1 and Studio 2), the Basement, Theatre 2, HOTA Central Foyer and of course, a few moments of surprise throughout our public spaces.
And making the most of HOTA’s nooks and crannies, you’ll be able to stop by the UNDERGROUND Pop-Up Bar in the heart of HOTA Central during the three nights – your space to socialise with friends, artists, and enjoy a glass of wine, or a classic craft beer.

Leave Me Alone: In Conversation with Christian Hull & Phoebe Kahn
In this intimate conversation, comedian, writer, podcaster and content creator Christian Hull will expand on his hilarious no-filter memoir to discuss life working in radio, his chaotic family life, and how he built his ‘F*** Off’ empire – and he’ll share stories that he wasn’t allowed to publish, just for HOTA audiences.
DISRUPTORS IN RESIDENCE
2021: A Space Odyssey
The Farm’s Greenhouse
Nine teenagers challenge and disrupt HOTA’s shared spaces as we all (literally and metaphorically) try to navigate a way forward together.
More than just a bag of hormones, The Greenhousers are getting a name for themselves as a creative agitative force, having previously been engaged as HOTA’s Disruptors in Residence in 2019.
Keep an eye out – our Disruptors in Residence may appear at any time throughout the evening.
EATS & DRINKS
The Exhibitionist Bar
Flirt with breathtaking views before or after your night out at UNDERGROUND. Whether you’re in need of a sparkling champagne or a delicious cocktail, our rooftop bar, located on Level 5 of HOTA Gallery, is ready to deliver. Open until midnight on Fri and Sat – but make a booking so you don’t miss out.
We’re committed to the celebrating the best Australia has to offer – from the performers on stage, to Palette’s locally sourced ingredients and art-inspired menu. Located on Level 5 of HOTA Gallery, Palette is the Gold Coast’s newest fine dining experience. Book your table and complete your night.
