SPRINGTIME partners with Artesian Hospitality for boutique beachside bars

Major Events Gold Coast’s new three-day, free music and entertainment festival SPRINGTIME has officially welcomed two iconic Gold Coast bars to the beachfront this September thanks to partnership with iconic hospitality group Artesian.

Positioned at the northern area of the SPRINGTIME precinct, close to the Lifeguard Tower Stage, the SPRINGTIME Pavilion will offer up a relaxed vibe, with drinks and a plethora of food options among a sea of laid back lounge areas. Guests of all ages can enjoy tasty treats and drinks in the sand as the warmer months of spring descend upon the festival grounds.

SPRINGTIME also welcomes the Cali Beach Bar, where the iconic Surfers Paradise venue comes alive inside the festival thanks to the creative minds at Artesian Hospitality. This 18+ hot spot offers side stage views to enjoy the perfect event experience.

Visitors attending one of Artesian Hospitality’s boutique pop-up bars will be able to take full advantage of the festival, which includes live sets from some of Australia’s most beloved artists, including Thelma Plum, Hermitude DJs, Ninajirachi, Alex The Astronaut, Skegss and heaps more.

Festival Director Mark Duckworth welcomed Artesian Hospitality’s support of the new festival and said MEGC was excited to partner to release SPRINGTIME on the beachside at Surfers Paradise.

Festival Director Mark Duckworth:

The wonderfully creative team at Artesian have created some exceptional venues on Gold Coast and we look forward to seeing their ‘pop-up' energy across the three days.

Artesian Hospitality’s founder and managing partner Matthew Keegan said the group was delighted to be partnering with MEGC to help bring to life SPRINGTIME as part of Artesian’s expansion into the festival and event space.

Artesian Hospitality’s Matthew Keegan:

The excitement of a beachfront festival, and the activation opportunities it presented, felt like a natural extension of the good times our venues celebrate year-round. We have some really exciting things planned, so we can’t wait to September when we can welcome our new and existing customers to celebrate a weekend of fun, sun food and drink on the sands of Surfers Paradise.
