Delegate Activities

This page provides information for delegates on activities being offered for their participation and enjoyment.

Pop-Up Performances

Pop-Up performances give choruses and quartets the opportunity to perform indoors in various locations throughout Broadbeach.
Pop-Up performances will be from 15-20 minutes in any location.
Most locations are within walking distance of The Star, Gold Coast (Festival HQ).

We will allocate venues that are considered suitable as far as possible to the times you choose. You may choose to nominate several different performance slots. 

We are providing Pop-Up performance opportunities in various time slots on Wednesday and Friday only.

Pop-Up Performance Participation Request Process

John Little Show

All Quartets, whether or not you are competing in Gold Coast are invited to indicate their intention to perform at the John Little Show from 7:30pm on Wednesday 4 September 2024 at TBA. This is a chance for as many quartets we can possibly cram in to hit out before the big contest in a friendly, informal atmosphere. As we would like to give as many quartets as possible the opportunity to perform, all quartets will be restricted to performing one song only. Interested quartets should register here to reserve their singing spot.

Chorus Corral

Choruses attending the Gold Coast Festival are invited to indicate their intention to perform in the traditional Chorus Corral from 2.00pm on Friday 6th of September 2024 in the Star Theatre. This is a chance for around 17 Choruses to perform in a friendly, informal atmosphere whether or not they are entered to compete in the National Contest on Saturday. Choruses who would like to sing one or two non-contest songs at this event should register here to reserve their spot on stage.

Sing with the Champs

This is a unique opportunity for delegates to sing with the international champs.

All it takes is a donation of $50 to BHA Youth Development.
