New to the Gold Coast entertainment scene this Summer, micro-fest Summertime Sessions in the Village knocked it out of the park last weekend for its final event of the season.
Local residents flocked to the small and oft-unused Cuddihy Park, where first they visited their local takeaway joint, then threw down a blanket, tucked into their food, and soaked up the stripped back, acoustic tunes. And that set the scene for the rest of the evening, really; good local people supporting good local business and great local music. A local punter even put his hand up to have his head shaved on the night for the Leukaemia Foundation’s Shave for a Cure.
It was a great pleasure being involved and photographing this unique little event, which has run every Friday night over the 2015-16 summer in this, its inaugural year. Here’s hoping this event stretches its legs in the coming summer and grows into bigger and better things. Viva la Summertime Sessions…and the Gold Coast music scene!
