One of Queensland’s biggest annual sporting events, the Boost Mobile Gold Coast 500 Supercars, is getting even bigger this year with three massive nights of live music including Bliss n Eso, Carl Cox & Eric Powell’s Mobile Disco, and Sneaky Sound System.

Returning in October for the first time since 2019, one of Australia’s best street racing circuits is set to inject $42 million into the Gold Coast visitor economy and supercharge Queensland’s reputation as a major events capital.

What is on and When:

  • Friday, October 28: Nine-time ARIA nominated Aussie hip hop giants Bliss n Eso will get the party started, supported by DJ Total Eclipse who has toured with some of the world’s biggest artists, including Eminem and Jay-Z.
  • Saturday, October 29:  Saturday’s performance will see Carl Cox & Eric Powell’s Mobile Disco return to the stage where they lit up the Gold Coast in 2019.
  • Sunday, October 30: Following the final race of the event, Aussie superstars Sneaky Sound System, supported by Brooke Evers and Kota Banks, will close the event with stellar performances of some of their biggest hits.

And the bonus is that all entertainment is included as part of a same-day event ticket to the Boost Mobile Gold Coast 500.

“The Boost Mobile Gold Coast 500 is an opportunity to showcase the best of Supercars to a global audience and we are thrilled with what is in store this year,” Supercars CEO Shane Howard said. “This event is the biggest annual sporting event in Queensland and we want to make sure it’s the biggest party of the year, for fans who’ve been waiting since 2019 to get back to Surfers Paradise. “Three huge nights of performances is something we have never done on the Gold Coast, so it’s exciting that we have secured some of the biggest acts getting around to take to the Club 500 stage.”

“2022 is rounding out as a year where our major events calendar went into overdrive – literally,” said Mayor Tom Tate. “I applaud Major Events Gold Coast and Supercars for bringing high-powered street racing back to the coast. “Drivers have consistently told me that behind Bathurst, the Gold Coast round is their favourite with around 200,000 race enthusiasts converging on the city for the three-day shoot out. Let’s get the green light and get racing underway in October.’’

The Boost Mobile Gold Coast 500 will be held 28-30 October on the streets of Surfers Paradise.
