HOME at HOTA
From December 1–15, HOTA is capturing the thrill of spending summer ‘at home’ on the Gold Coast by hosting the biggest event series the arts and culture precinct has ever seen. Staying put this summer? You’ll be glad you did.
HOME by HOTA will see a mammoth 20 events roll out over 15 long, sun-kissed days and balmy nights, featuring everything from music festivals and pop-up dance parties to skate jams, home-grown burlesque and saucy cabaret. The scorching event series will kick off with Gold Coast’s first-ever Roots Music Festival (Sunday December 1), followed by the ultimate hip-hop and RnB dance party on Friday December 6 an unmissable concert by dance-worthy beat makers Hot Brown Honey and hype junkie YO! MAFIA.
HOTA will transform into a skateboarders haven for Concrete Culture on Sunday December 8 (think skate demos, markets, food and live music), while saucy drag and burlesque smackdown RUMBLE! will provide a splash of mid-week fun on Wednesday December 11. On Friday December 13 the unmissable Dance Beneath the Stars event will take over the Outdoor Stage for the ultimate after-dark freestyle dance party, while the true meaning of ‘home’ will be explored at the Deadly Hearts: A Celebration of Australian Indigenous Music event on Saturday December 14. The Calling Home concert on the Outdoor Stage on Sunday December 15 will wrap up HOME’s 15 days of spectacular events with an evening of euphoric arrangements from Lior, Parvyn Singh, the Camerata Orchestra and Australian Voices Choir, with each score speaking of home, faith and traditions.
That’s just the tip of the iceberg! For the full HOME program and ticket bookings, head to the HOTA website.
