Bleach* Festival 2014 Announce First Lineup


From 7-23 March, 2014, the Bleach* Festival will drench the Gold Coast with a three-week, high-energy, action-packed parade of live music, beach concerts, theatre, performing arts, film and fun

Bleach* Festival HQ is the Southern Gold Coast but this year, satellite events throughout the Gold Coast will spread the best of Bleach* across the length and breadth of the city.

One of the highlights of the opening weekend of Bleach* 2014 is the indie music night on Friday March 7th at the SoundLounge at the Currumbin RSL.  Sharing the stage will be three of Australia's hottest upcoming artists in ELIZABETH ROSE, THE TROUBLE WITH TEMPLETON and HEY GERONIMO. 

ELIZABETH ROSE is an electronic pop producer from Sydney that has been taking the world by storm with her latest single "The Good Life" one of the most played songs on Triple J. Much loved at home and abroad she is gaining the reputation of one of the most engaging new artists on the planet.

THE TROUBLE WITH TEMPLETON recently released their Triple J feature album "Rookie" to rave reviews globally.  Thomas Calder and his band mates have been steadily building over the last couple of years into one of the most loved new Australian artists and most sought after Internationally.

HEY GERONIMO are sure to get the party started with their up-tempo indie pop party.  They have recently released their "Erring On The Side Of Awesome" EP which only solidifies their reputation for bringing the fun.

The following Friday March 14th we are working on emulating one of our highlights from 2013.  VIOLENT SOHO were so good last year that we have invited them back.  They headlined our rock n roll party and completely deserve the honours again this year.

Their achievements in the last 12 months have been astonishing with their new album "Hungry Ghost" debuting at #6 on the ARIA charts.  They have also been selling out venues all over the country and confirming their place as one of the most exciting guitar bands ever to come out of Australia. 

BAD//DREEMS are an incredibly exciting new rock n roll band straight outta Adelaide.  Their new single "Hoping For" is one of the most played songs on Triple J and their stunning live show is proving to be one of the most in demand this summer.

THE SINKING TEETH are a three piece rock n roll band from Melbourne that are straight out of the mould of a proper hard working rock n roll band.  Seemingly on the road since they started, they could well be your new favourite band.

Last but not least is the true collision of music and surf culture on Friday March 21st with BAND OF FREQUENCIES presenting the Queensland premiere screening of 'The Transparentsea Voyage - A Modern Voyage with Ancient Creatures' featuring a live performance of songs from the film by Band of Frequencies + special guests, and artwork displayed by Howie Cooke (S4C). 

The Transparentsea Voyage, like the marine mammals that swim in the sea and communicate through sound & song, this documentary takes the viewer on a sensory journey of the making of 23 songs in 23 days all while exploring by sea and land, one of the most populated coastlines in the world, Southern California...

“The first line up is a testament to the health and diversity of the Australian music scene is at the moment.  By the time the event comes around most of these bands will be well and truly entrenched in our musical consciousness.”  GRAHAM ASHTON – Bleach* Festival Music Programmer 

Get set to get wet!  Get ready to party!  Bleach* Festival is the biggest and most diverse celebration of everything there is to love about the Gold Coast and a whole lot more!

See for program events.
