BLEACH* SURFING THE FRINGE WILL CELEBRATE ALL ART FORMS KISSED BY THE OCEAN, ENCRUSTED IN SALT AND BLEACHED BY THE SUN.
From 11-26 February 2012, music, art, writing, film and photography sharing the common theme of surfing will be on display across the iconic beaches and venues of the Southern Gold Coast.
Ever-changing and fluid like the ocean, the festival will eschew traditional gallery settings in favour of a series of beachside and casual indoor pop up events liberally scattered across the coast, including art housed in shipping containers, mobile music truck concerts, children’s workshops, a street festival, and outdoor light shows and cinematic experiences.

From the spectacular natural rock formations at Currumbin to Coolangatta’s iconic pointbreaks, the Southern Gold Coast’s visually stunning shoreline and world-class waves will provide the quintessential backdrop for a celebration of surfing’s vibrant fringe culture.
So slap your sunscreen on and get suited up. It’s time to hit Bleach* Surfing the Fringe.
