The Gold Coast Acoustic / Folk Festival originated as a Day of Bluegrass at the Southport Bowls Club in 2005. That event also marked the beginning of the Gold Coast Music Club (Coast Acoustics), which now has over 500 members. The Gold Coast Folk Festival has been held each year in various forms and locations on the Coast featuring local, regional, national and international bands. The "folk" music has expanded to include (almost) all genres. The focus is on acoustic live music, that is either original contemporary or traditional music.
