BUY TICKETS

UPDATE, NOVEMBER 9: Sandtunes has been cancelled, with organisers noting that "without sand between our punters' toes, the very notion of the beachside festival in a stadium meant low sales". Ticketholders who purchased by credit or debit card will receive refunds automatically within ten working days, while those who purchased in an agency will be contacted by phone with a fortnight to make refund arrangements.

UPDATE, SEPTEMBER 3: Sandtunes has advised that it has changed venues, moving from the previously announced Coolangatta beachfront to Metricon Stadium "after listening to responses from the local community". Ticket prices have also been reduced, with single-day tickets now $129 and two-day passes costing $199. The festival will also be open to patrons aged 15 years and over.

Already one of the country's go-to spots for sand, surf and sun, the Gold Coast now boasts another reason to plan a visit this summer: Sandtunes, a massive two-day music festival. Debuting this year across Saturday, November 30 and Sunday, December 1, the new event will take over Metricon Stadium with a jam-packed lineup of live tunes, with Travis Scott, Logic, Chvrches and Carly Rae Jepsen leading the bill.

The festival will mark Scott's only Australian performance this year, so if you're keen to see the Texas-born rapper play tracks from his 2018 album Astroworld, this is the place to be. If you're a fan of fellow US hip hop star Logic, you'll also be treated to his first-ever Aussie show. While Scottish trio Chvrches are no strangers to our shores — they're on this year's Spilt Milk lineup as well — Sandtunes will also welcome Canadian pop star Carly Rae Jepsen for her debut performance in Australia.

When you're not singing along to 'Call Me Maybe' live, you can also check out the rest of the just-announced first lineup, which spans Juice WRLD, Dean Lewis, Sampa the Great, Tkay Maidza, Cub Sport, Kait, Kwame, WAAX, Kian, Alice Ivy, Genesis Owusu and Saint Lane.

A word of warning: the festival dates do overlap with part of Schoolies — although, thankfully Carrara is never particularly hectic with revelling school leavers as Surfers Paradise.
