Located upstairs at Currumbin RSL, Soundlounge is one of the most credible live music venues on the Gold Coast.
It has been putting on some of the best local, national and international acts for just over 10 years now.
It underwent a renovation in 2013 which improved not just the comfort and appearance, but also saw the acoustics enhanced and the sound system upgraded.
Capacity was also increased, although total capacity depends of how the venue is set up: it can accommodate up to a maximum of 800 concert guests.
The list of acts that Soundlounge has put on over the years is pretty impressive: here is just a taste – Sarah Blasko, Boy and Bear, Loudon Wainwright, British India, Clare Bowditch, Ash Grunwald, The Audrey’s, Bobby Alu, The Panics and the list goes on…
As you can see that is pure quality, and it’s a shame that the venue is only able to put on shows once a week (on a Friday).
Soundlounge is air-conditioned venue with an outdoor verandah for smoking. You need to be 18 or over to get in, and the dress code is pretty relaxed. Light meals are available. As it is part of the RSL, you will need to sign in there on the way in. You don’t need to be an RSL member, you can enter as a guest.
Tickets for events are invariably available in advance, directly through the venue’s website. It is advisable to get one, as you avoid paying a higher fee at the door, if not finding the gig sold out.
It’s a great venue with an excellent music policy, and is a credit to the Gold Coast music scene.
