Northern NSW Local Health District has been notified of new venues of concern associated with confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the region.

The popular and fast-growing Gold Coast arts, music and beach-culture festival Bleach* is back for 2014.

From March 7 to 23 , Bleach* festival will move down the Gold Coast like a wave gathering momentum as popular beachside villages become hubs of activity, with the heart and soul of the program taking place in the southern Gold Coast alongside world-famous surf breaks.

The festival program is a feast of contemporary live music, pop-up art installations and exhibitions, outdoor film programs, street parties, theatre, and ideas. The 2014 program will be jam-packed over three mega-weekends.

The first weekend of the festival coincides with the final weekend of the international event and launch of the surfing world tour, the Quiksilver and Roxy Pro. The perfect celebration to the surfing season, Bleach* festival will open with a new major commission by one of Australia’s most celebrated performing arts companies, live music, outdoor free cinema, the launch of the all-new Bleach* Jnr program, plus a whole lot more for all to enjoy.

The Bleach* opening party will launch the festival on Friday March 7 at the SoundLounge, Currumbin with three of Australia’s hottest upcoming artists in one huge event.
