Bringin’ together all things street, skate and music, Shakafest on the Gold Coast will feature bangin’ tunes from an insane lineup, headlined by none other than Hip Hop sensation DRAPHT together with Aussie maniacs the DUNE RATS and Sydney Hip Hop duo thrillers, SPIT SYNDICATE.

Shakafest is a reflection of the Gold Coast’s street scene combining Aussie Hip Hop, Grunge, Surf Rock, DJ’s, graffiti art as well as a massive half pipe with all round skaters to create the ultimate skate demo; courtesy of RedBull and Fiik.

The beats don’t stop there; three future local legends Peach Fur, Ivey and Von Villains will be thrashing the stage with their hectic tunes and groovy moves as well as favourite Rockers The Vanns and Kiama punk act, the White Blanks.

As a collaboration between Miami Tavern and Wedge Head Events, Shakafest not only smashes together all of the valued niche cultures that the Gold Coast is famous for, it also attracts diverse groups of people looking for something new and exciting to experience. With the combination of skate, surf, art, food and music – This new street festival is truly a celebration of the Gold Coasts unique street scene.

Shakafest aims to combine all of the Gold Coasts most loved entertainment industries into one unique mini festival by bringing in the skate demo, a mixed genre of live bands and DJ’s, live graffiti art and stalls. We are creating an experience that will appeal to so many different scenes on the coast; Shakafest will draw in all walks of life and expose people to new genres of music, sports and art.

It’s time to hang loose at one of the best new street festivals on the GC!
