Street art is taking over the Gold Coast's footpaths, laneways and walls, including 12 large-scale outdoor murals and a 2.4-kilometre fence line exhibition.

Life is always a little brighter on the Gold Coast, given the beachside city is home to all that sun, surf and sand, but it'll be positively bursting with colour and art as well when July rolls around. That's when Surface Miami Street Art Festival is returning for 2022, taking over suburb of Miami and connecting its two creative precincts — from Hillcrest Parade through to Lemana Lane — with plenty of paint.

For two weeks, between Sunday, July 3–Sunday, July 17, the creative team at Miami Marketta will oversee a fest that spans everything from 12 large-scale outdoor murals to a 2.4-kilometre fence line exhibition — plus skate and painting workshops complete with a pop-up skate park, and paint-by-number community art sessions as well. And, there'll also be laneway concerts, with Meg Mac, Pete Murray, The Beautiful Girls and more taking to the stage.

Pre-fest, on Friday, July 1, Jaguar Jonze is hosting a ticketed exhibition at Miami Marketta, while an art fair and tasting Granddad Jack's latest gin is also on the agenda.

And, although some events do cost to get in, the overwhelming majority of the fest is free — other than however you make your way down to the Goldie.
