Jimmy Barnes, perfect waves and you – sound good?

This is a once in a lifetime chance to see Jimmy up close and personal, performing all his greatest hits from Cold Chisel and beyond.

Whilst we all love the sound of an epic music festival at the beach, the truth is there’s plenty of potential pitfalls at most other gigs.

There’s bouncers, drunks, queues for food, the bar, the toilet… you name it, there’s a queue. There’s an overpriced merch, the sea of smart phones blocking your view of the band, the tall skinhead guy with his drunk girl on his shoulders… the list goes on.

Being over festival crowds doesn’t mean you have to give up your love of live music though.

We have come up with what we think is a pretty cool, fool-proof formula that combines 3 key passions minus the above pitfalls.


We have incorporated three things everyone loves in their life: Surfing great waves, listening to groovy tunes and vacationing in tropical paradise.

Surf Music In Paradise fuses all 3 and more in our very own, unique event. Most importantly, what sets this event apart is we cap the numbers so it is a truly intimate, experience.

Oh, and did I mention cocktails on beanbags at sunset?

We are very excited Mr Jimmy Barnes and his band will be performing 3 amazing shows at Kandooma Resort in the Maldives from September 2-9.

Jimmy and I had a chat about what to expect at Surf Music In Paradise 2017 in his studio the other night.

Reserve your accommodation now,  this will sell out fast!
