2016 Venue of the Year – NightQuarter

NightQuarter has four stages featuring local Gold Coast artists every weekend. From 14 year old buskers to well-established Gold Coast bands, NightQuarter is all about incubating local talent. On average, NightQuarter provides twenty artists each weekend with opportunities to be paid to perform, busk, sell merchandise and reach an audience of up to 10,000 patrons. By featuring well over 100 local artists since opening in November, the venue has invested significantly in staging, technical support and marketing of its music focus. NightQuarter has gone above and beyond to bring the local music scene to life, particularly in the northern reaches of the city, helping artists reach new audiences and introducing everyday people to local, original music. In November and December 2015 the venue hosted Cheap Fakes; Hanlon Brothers; CC the Cat; Felicity Lawless; Hussy Hicks; Dubmarine; Black Rabbit George and Jake Whittaker to name but a few.
