Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary

Marketing Manager, Greg Daven believed in "Buskers by the Creek" from the onset and we cannot thank him enough for his encouragement and support.

We've been fortunate enough to have Greg and Entertainment Manager, Paul Guerin as our sounding boards and they've certainly attributed to making the "Buskers by the Creek" dream become reality!

The Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary team may be known for their love of nature and it's animals, but they've definitely proved they're passionate about their community and it's people!

Thank you for believing in the vision! We can't express our gratitude enough!

Genesis Fitness Currumbin

We owe a massive shout out to the owners of Genesis Fitness, Mario, Helen and Gerard, for jumping onboard and supporting culture in their community!

You guys own the best local fitness club and we love how you're giving back to the community who have supported you since your 'Beach House' days!

A massive thankyou also to Nicole Cormack, the Club's General Manager, for believing in our initiative and instigating the support!

We love to think outside the square and hope to see your team showcase their fitness moves in a body attack battle! That would be a showstopper!

Talent Sponsors

Dare Empire

If you understand the challenge of creating a brand, you will appreciate what Justin James went through in designing ours!

A logo should reflect who you are and we believe Justin nailed it! There was many a late night and numerous concept changes and we thank JJ for remaining positive throughout the lengthy process!

Thanks for the coffee catch ups! Although it's only been a week since you've moved, you're sorely missed....come for a visit soon!

Major Look Creations

Illustrator extraordinaire, Paul Major, spent countless hours with pencil in hand and we'll never forget the screams on receiving the first draft!

Artwork brief: Must ooze festival fun and include our iconic pelicans.

Outcome: An illustration masterpiece that far exceeded our expectations!

Paul, we love you for your vision, your flair and for creating something that will be treasured for years to come!

You made our baby grow legs and get noticed! Thank you!

We didn't know where, when and how - until we met our guardian angels!

Tony, Janelle and Rick have not only offered their venue, services and support, they've also upped the prize pool with a hefty sum of cash!

You guys will always keep our flame alight!

Reefcosa Electrical

Thanks to Dean and Justin, we'll be wired up and abuzz with festival fever!

It's a massive task having to provide power to all our food vendors and we're so grateful for the offer of assistance from our local electricians.

These guys aren't just reliable and trustworthy, they're community minded men with big hearts! Thanks for lightening our load and making us power ahead in our planning!

Gold Coast Graphic Design

We have a networking breakfast to thank for introducing us to Kelly Robinson, the wonder woman behind Gold Coast Graphic Design.

Kelly's got a heart of gold and despite having a massive backlog of work, she was determined to produce our website art and see us go live!

Thanks to you and your girls for staying up until the wee hours creating our wicked web! You're all champions!

PS: Unfortunately there will be no courtesy buses transporting home from the opening party!


With the design done, John and Brittany took over the reigns and completed our website puzzle.

We're not technologically advanced by any means and have to thank these guys for their patience!

We are stoked with the end result and without you guys, we wouldn't have made our mark in cyber space!

Lovestreet Studios

For one talented participant of our upcoming "Battle of the Buskers", time in the recording studio will soon become reality!

Barry and Scott were quick to support our Saturday night event and offer up an extremely generous prize donation of recording and mixing. We're not singer/songwriters, but from what we hear it's a prize worth battling for!

Thank you for taking up the challenge and for reminding us of the need to delegate!


Thanks to Soundlounge, the winner of our "Totally Talented" title will be headlining an "Original Seeds Showcase"!

Soundlounge is Gold Coast's premier live music venue for original, local, national and international touring artists and we're stoked to have them provide such an amazing opportunity for one of our talents.

Thanks Rob! It will be a tough judge though, as the talent this year is phenomenal!

1-DA Shapes

Local shaper, Gavin Upson has jumped onboard and provided us with awesome prizes to giveway.
