Calling all TV WEEK Logie Awards super-fans! We are thrilled to announce a free Logies event will be coming to The Gold Coast in Queensland this year, dedicated to the most important people in the industry; the fans.
Complete with a live musical performance from Conrad Sewell, TV WEEK Logies Stars In the Park will be held on Friday, June 28, from 4pm to 6pm at Kurrawa Park, Broadbeach, Gold Coast.
2019 TV WEEK Logie Awards stars Costa Georgiadis, Jules Robinson and Cam Merchant, Shelley Craft, Eve Morey, Ryan Moloney, Bonnie Anderson, Bernard Curry, Robbie Magasiva and Fox League stars will be in attendance to meet fans and sign autographs.
Plus, fans will also have the chance to become part of their favourite shows as they have the chance to sit in The Voice Australia big red chair, have their photo taken in a Wentworth prison cell and share the love with ABC TV. Fans will also enjoy a City of Gold Coast Creative Gold performance, and meet 90.9 Sea FM's Breakfast hosts Ben & Dan, who will be broadcasting live from the event.
There will also be a Live Voting Zone, where fans will be able to vote for their favourite stars and shows across all the Most Popular award nominees before voting closes on Sunday, June 30, and have their photo taken on a red carpet and with a real-life Gold Logie. Not to mention food trucks, fun activities and more!
As proud hosts of the 61st TV WEEK Logie Awards for a second year, The Star Gold Coast will also give a group of lucky fans the chance to join an exclusive Gold Star Moment during the two-hour festivities.
"This is the perfect warm-up event for this year's TV WEEK Logie Awards," says TV WEEK Editor Thomas Woodgate. "Fans will get a chance to get up close to some of their favourite TV stars, take a selfie with a Logie and have a great deal of fun at the same time. Plus, fans have the chance to win exclusive VIP passes to the red carpet as well! I'm genuinely excited, as it's the first time we've hosted a pre-event such as this. It promises to be a lot of fun and I look forward to seeing everyone there!"
City of Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate says, "I'm delighted Gold Coasters can experience some of the glamour, behind-the-scenes sets and meet their favourite TV and pop stars. The Gold Coast is already Australia's home of film production. With the Logies in town, we can showcase our sound stages and production facilities to some of the best talent in TV."
Geoff Hogg, Managing Director Queensland for The Star Entertainment Group, says "The Star Gold Coast is thrilled to be welcoming back Australia's most celebrated awards ceremony. In addition to the glitz and glamour of the red-carpet arrivals and the awards themselves, we're excited to build on the excitement of the 61st TV WEEK Logie Awards with a host of exciting activations, including a Golden Trail of Gold Star Moments culminating at the TV WEEK Logies Stars In The Park."
The 61st TV WEEK Logie Awards take place on Sunday, June 30, at The Star Gold Coast in Queensland. All the action from the red-carpet arrivals and awards-show celebrations will be telecast on Nine Network and 9Now.
