Get ready to deck the halls and spread the holiday cheer because the Mayor’s Christmas Carols are back for their 12th annual celebration, and this year’s lineup is nothing short of spectacular!

Taking center stage at the HOTA Outdoor Stage and HOTA Parklands on Saturday, December 2, this festive extravaganza promises an unforgettable night of music, merriment, and magical moments.

Leading the star-studded cast is none other than Human Nature, the ARIA Hall of Famers and multi-award-winning pop-vocal sensations with an impressive three decades of international acclaim.

“Set your alarms for Monday and Tuesday next week when free tickets are released for this incredible Christmas event,” said Mayor Tom Tate.

“It’s going to be a fun-filled night at HOTA with the parklands also being activated. There will be large screens and a whole range of family entertainment and food trucks along with our talented line-up including the one and only Human Nature.”

The Christmas elves have brought together an incredible ensemble of performers, including Gold Coast’s very own rising star, Lily Grace, fresh from enchanting audiences in Nashville, USA.

Joining the lineup is the internationally acclaimed Brisbane City Gospel Choir, adding soulful harmonies to the festive air.


And for the little ones, the Warner Bros. Movie World’s Looney Tunes Christmas Show promises to keep the kids entertained, with a special appearance by none other than Santa himself!

The stage will be graced by our very own Galey and Emily Jade O’Keeffe, along with 7NEWS Gold Coast presenters, Amanda Abate and Steve Titmus.

The festivities kick off at 6 pm and wrap up at 9 pm with a spectacular fireworks finale.

Be quick to secure your spot on the lawn at the HOTA Outdoor Stage, as free tickets are limited and sure to disappear faster than Santa down a chimney!

Can’t snag a ticket? No worries! The HOTA Parklands offer a ticket-free zone, opening its gates from 4 pm for everyone to enjoy the festivities.
