12 Days of Christmas at HOTA

We can’t quite believe it, but Christmas is now just around the corner. As the weather warms up, and restrictions remain relaxed, we’re loving seeing people making the most of our enviable weather and enjoying all the best things our beautiful city has to offer.

It’s been great to see more and more of you enjoying yourself with friends and family at our outdoor events and this December we’re delighted to present a line-up of some of the best local and SE QLD based singers and songwriters in our 12 Days of Christmas program.

Over 12 nights in December our Lakeside Terrace and Lawn Bar will host low key, relaxed performances from artists including CC the Cat, Karl S Williams, and Santa Taranta. These free sunset sessions, with live music, eats and drinks, are sure to remind you of why you love living on the Gold Coast.

We’ll have hampers and cheese platters available to pre-order, and maybe even a few cheeky Christmas cocktails for the occasion.

The full line up will be announced shortly, but check out a sneak peek below.  Be sure to join our Fridays on the Lawn Facebook event to be kept up to date with other free live music, and to stay up to date on further announcements about our 12 Days of Christmas program.


12 Days of Christmas is presented as part of the Feedback Festival 2020 – you can read more about it here.
