Finalists Announced


The Gold Coast Music Awards have named 26 finalists across eight categories for the event's 2018 annual outing, which takes place on the beachfront with a massive free concert to kick off Surfers Paradise LIVE festival, Thursday 3 May.

After another massive year it's no surprise to see Amy Shark among the finalists with four nominations. Emerging folk duo Hollow Coves have proved to be a dark horse among the entrants, also snagging four spots on the list of finalists. Hussy Hicks, Black Rabbit George, Casey Barnes, Ella Fence and newcomers Eliza and the Delusionals have all picked up multiple nominations. See the full list of finalists below!

"It's been a massive year for Gold Coast music and the fact that one third of this year's finalists will be showcased to the world while the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games is in town is testament to the calibre of talent being recognised," said Awards director, Samantha Morris.

Tickets for the Gold Coast Music Awards are on sale now via Oztix.
