Resonate was conceived as an alternative to open mic nights with bad sound/lighting, and dodgy band competitions. Resonate aims to present the cream of local and touring unplugged singer songwriters performing at their best each week with great sound and lighting – operated by an industry professional.

We also like to pay the carefully handpicked artists that play at Resonate each week.

Presented by Pandamonium Records and originally staged at the Courthouse Hotel in 2003 and then later the Grand Hotel in Cairns where it is currently staged, Resonate became a local institution with Dan Sultan, Emma Louise, Danny Ross, Steve Towson and many more having all played Resonate early in their careers.

The night has also hosted countless touring and local original acts over the years.
Resonate has become well known on the touring circuit with many touring bands passing through stripping back to a few members to get an extra gig while in town and making their tour more financially viable.

This ain’t no stinking open mic night, this is RESONATE!

Entry is free every Thursday night from 7pm at the Grand Hotel in Cairns
