Music legends live on at VIVA Surfers Paradise, Australia’s ultimate tribute artist festival. With a program of free live performances and events spanning genres and decades, you can celebrate the music, memories and moments of legendary icons both past and present.

VIVA Surfers Paradise provides 10 days of classic entertainment suitable for all ages. This year VIVA welcomes John Blunt performing as Freddie Mercury in The Killer Queen Experience, Greg Andrew in the Elton John Experience, The Beatlegs as The Ultimate Beatles Tribute and Mark Andrew in his genre-defying Dead-Set Legends Show.

The twinkle in VIVA’s eye is Elvis Presley, who will be embodied by international Elvis Tribute Artist guests, Diogo Light and David Lee. Australia’s very own Brody Finlay, the reigning VIVA Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest winner, also joins us for one very special performance.

VIVA hosts preliminary rounds for the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest, inviting 20 high-calibre contestants to compete over two days in a rigorous contest. The winner will travel to Memphis for Elvis Week 2019 to compete in the semi-final round.

Additional event highlights include free back-to-back music performances in Cavill Mall, VIVA parade, Car Show ‘n’ Shine, Renewal of Vows ceremony and a dazzling gospel performance by Diogo Light and the Brisbane Gospel Choir.

Come and see for yourself how legends were made and walk away with your own great musical memories, at VIVA Surfers Paradise.
