Vegetarian breakfast, The Cardamom Pod – Broadbeach

With a big day of country dancing and sing-alongs planned, make sure you fill up with a beautiful breakfast or lunch from The Cardamom Pod. Located right next to Oasis in Broadbeach, just one meal at this quirky, vegetarian cafe and you’ll be instantly hooked. Whether you’re bringing the kids down for an affordable buffet lunch or you and your partner want a organic pick me up, there’s something for everybody at The Cardamom Pod. While you can’t go wrong with any of the vegan snacks or salads on offer, the smoothies are an absolute must. We suggest the superfoods smoothie – especially if you’ve had a big one the night before – with spirulina, prana protein powder, maca powder, coconut oil, aloe vera and green tea extract for a healthy start to the Broadbeach Country Music Festival.

Let the Broadbeach Country Music Festivities begin!

If you come down to the festival at any time, you’re guaranteed good vibes and entertaining acts. However, we’ve done our research and given you a guide to the best acts each day, so you can get the most out of your Broadbeach Country Music Festival experience.
This being the opening day of the festival, you see smaller crowds in comparison to the following nights. So if you’re a big fan of some of the acts, you’ll have the chance to get up close and personal during their performance. We suggest spending the afternoon at the Broadbeach Mall stage listening to the likes of Roo Arcus, Ben Ransom and Harry Hookey, before heading to The Envy Hotel for Col Finley.
Saturday is jam-packed with so many great acts it’s impossible to catch them all. Spend your mid-morning and afternoon stage hopping to see as many great acts as you can, before settling in at the Surf Parade stage where you’ll see James Blundell, The Pigs and Beccy Cole.
On Sunday it’s all about the afternoon set at the Surf Parade stage! Starting at 2:15p, you’ll catch The Wolfe Brothers only act of the festival, which is sure to be a ripper. This is quickly followed by The McClymonts, which is also their only act, so get down and see these beautiful girls do what they do best. We suggest finishing the night at The Envy Hotel with more live acts to go with some good vibes.
