History of the event so far:

To date, five events have been held in Redcliffe Queensland to raise money for a group called The Breakfast Club. This team of 100 percent volunteers provide over 1200 meals per month as well as outreach services to the coalface of the needs in the community.

 The group opened a Hub in 2017 and this is fully funded by the “Rockin 4 for the Homeless” events. They see up to 50 clients twice a week and have outgrown this space in the first year. This group is non-funded by any tier of Government.

The bands that have played throughout the first five years include:

  • Mental as Anything
  • Hoodoo Gurus
  • Angry Anderson
  • Diana Anaid

Over 100 local acts have played at the event with over 450 applications from bands expressing interest in participating.

“Rockin 4 the Homeless” goes on tour in 2019 with the first events outside of Redcliffe QLD. Since 2013 the team have been refining the model and getting support and exposure worldwide. 

Support from the likes of Tash Sultana/The Offspring/Jo Satriani/Hoodoo Gurus and far too many more to name. In the process we also managed to raise over $200,000 for the Homeless in just five shows.

The event is run by 100 percent volunteers and music industry powerbrokers. 100 percent of all money raised goes to the homeless. No fat-cat CEO wages or flash cars to be seen. Our director, Dan Nebe, has put over 6000 hours into the project and has never received a cent for his time. He has dedicated his free time to the homeless cause and has a tsunami of followers assisting him.

Who is the Gold Coast Charity:

The Movement Crew Gold Coast are a local Gold Coast based charity that provides support & outreach to the Gold Coast. This is achieved through three (3) weekly local homeless feeds at Labrador & Surfers Paradise. On any week throughout the year, the Movement Crew will feed and provide outreach to 150 people. This group is non-funded by any tier of Government. Local volunteers & donations provide the backbone of the support provided to the homeless community on the Gold Coast.

The “Rockin 4 the Homeless” event will provide funds for the group to purchase a vehicle to enable the group to service a broader geographic area of the Gold Coast.

What will it be….?

The event is a 12-hour festival format. Two stages running alternatively with an MC between acts. One major headliner with 12-20 local and imported bands.

Over 100 local acts have played at the event with over 450 applications from bands expressing interest in participating.

We never have weather issues.

The venue provides toilets/security/public liability as well as food and beverage licences.

Many venues have in-house production.

Who controls the Money…?

The local charity controls the money. Rockin 4 the Homeless has never touched the money and never will. We are good at running the event, the chosen Charity are good at providing the service to the community. We insist on the following.

Charity must be registered with ASIC and Office of Fair Trading.

No less than 80 percent of funds raised must go to local based homeless projects.

Two complete and independent audits must be completed for each event.

An independent financial controller is appointed by the recipient charity.

Our Target….

The target depends on many factors. Geographic area is the main factor and the line-up of Acts is the determining price. Last year, our one event at Redcliffe raised $49, 275.

With two internationally recognised headliners for 2019 – You Am I & the SuperJesus we are aiming to raise in excess of $70 000 for our cause.

Media….

The event will receive extensive media coverage. Support is already secured with local radio stations.
Print media including the Gold Coast Bulletin will be ongoing leading up to the event.
A3 posters will be put up all around the Gold Coast as well as leaflets & flyers handed out at many events on the Gold Coast leading up to the event.
