Bleach Festival and Kirra Kite Festival joined their festivities at beautiful Kirra Beach this year. The skies over Kirra beach were awash with spectacular colour as amazing kites flew overhead, while live bands performed from a stage in the beachside park. JVG Hire provided the pro audio and lighting for the live performers. This event proved popular with huge crowds loving the weather, beachside sounds and ambience.

Bleach Festival is a celebration of arts and culture; enlightening the people of the Gold Coast with various styles of entertainment during three weekends from February 15th to the 3rd of March. The JVG Sound Lighting and Visual Hire Department were engaged to provide pro audio, visual and lighting equipment again this year for the exciting coastal festival.
