HOTA Playlist March Edition


Another month, another suspiciously bare calendar looking for its fill.

Luckily for you, HOTA is home to epic comedy, cinematic specials, and enough music to keep you going until our next playlist drops. 

For now...

Go back in time with Johnny Cash, catch some giggles with GC Laughs Festival and bring your Spotify Wrapped to life with Benee. 

Oh and those are just some highlights. There's still plenty to discover, explore and experience at HOTA's March Madness.

#The Highlights

GC Laughs Festival

Gold Coast's Biggest Comedy Festival

12-20 Mar

#March Music Madness

Live acts are blowing out the calendar with music making a comeback in 2022. Flowing on from the tidal wave left by Ocean Alley, young stars, jazz and blues, percussion perfection and award-winning deep cuts are taking the stages of HOTA. 

Beat the first mid-week hump with hands on drumming or swing into the night with Gold Coast Jazz and Blues.

Then finish the month strong with Benee (and her 7,000,000 monthly listeners) and celebrate Lloyd Spielgel's phenomenal album with a trip down to the Basement. 

#Laughs of the Month

We've been shouting about the return of GC Laughs Festival for a fourth year at HOTA. One week of big names, big laughs, and.... I don't know, it's just massive, alright?

Support our ArtKeeper Artist Dani Cabs and support his show Poncho: Keep it Up! Created onsite at HOTA and heading on to Melbourne Comedy Festival next. See it first this month! 

Then catch those funny blokes that are always on TV, Peter Helliar and Dave Hughes. 

#Gallery Goodness

Get amongst HOTA Collects, explore Dumping Dreams and find your next artistic adventure at HOTA Gallery. 

Full of local, national and international names, discover the rule breakers, standard makers and all around artistic legends calling the City Collection home. 

Psssssttt... big announcements are coming, so sign-up to our mailing list to be the first in the know. 

#Hands-On Workshops

Get down, dirty and creative with a mix of workshops and ArtLabs at your disposal. 

Find your passion, pick-up some skills or get that artistic outlet you've been searching for and see what you can make.
