This March, the Corona Open Gold Coast is set to kick off the 2020 Championship Tour Season. Snapper Rocks', one of Australia's most iconic waves, has a custom-built sandbar that offers world-class waves and lends itself to exceptional surfing. Being the first event of the season, it sets the tone for the rest of the year and we can expect to see both the men and women battling it out for the top spots.
The Drop Festival is going HUGE in 2020, this time with seven awesome Aussie acts taking over the stages and bringing the beats to Coolangatta on the 28th of March.
2020 will see the likes of THE PRESETS, BOY & BEAR, BALL PARK MUSIC, ALLDAY, DZ DEATHRAYS, KITA ALEXANDER and GRAACE.
