The Cat Empire
With a slew of awards, multiplatinum albums and more than 1200 shows under their belts, The Cat Empire has carved out a unique musical journey to become a fully independent band on its own global label.
A firm summertime favourite for all generations of the family, The Cat Empire will play on the Main Stage at Surfers Paradise for an epic night. Since their inception over a decade ago they have celebrated an unrivalled level of success both at home and overseas.
This Melbourne born band is now world renown for a live show that never fails to deliver in the melody-driven-joyful-dancing stakes. With a slew of awards and multiplatinum albums to their name, and well over 1200 shows under their belts, their journey as musicians has been spectacular.
Now a fully independent band on their own global label, they have consistently defied fashion and carved their own musical journey, remaining humble and eternally cheerful in the process. What makes The Cat Empire truly unique though is their prowess as musicians.
Starting their career in Melbourne Jazz clubs, and honing their chops on festival stages throughout the world, this is a very tight musical outfit of truly gifted musicians. The music they create is uniquely their own, as is their infectious, dance-inducing live show.
The Cat Empire live shows never fail to deliver in the melody-driven-joyful-dancing stakes, so get ready to get moving!
Come early to see the Opening Ceremony screened live on the Main Stage from 8pm.
