    Who will be doing the Welcome to Country at this event and will it feature local musicians and performers from our community?

    • Rio Rhythmics

      Hi Tony
      We have not included a Welcome to Country at the event and are not familiar with the protocol around this. The musicians are both Brisbane and Gold Coast based, Brazilian born and Australian musicians.
