It's been over 20 years since Baz Luhrmann's interpretation of 'Romeo + Juliet' hit our screens.

In a world run by nostalgia, it's only natural that we bring it back, or rather, bring the music back.

So in the spirit of celebrating the greatness of the past, Home Of The Arts (HOTA) on the Gold Coast and Crowded are presenting 'Young Hearts Run Free', a masquerade ball filled with all things 'R+J'... Especially its soundtrack.

The evening will feature music from the likes of Patience Hodgson (The Grates), alternative pop singer Rhea Robertson, Brisbane band Dubmarine, singer-songwriter and co-creator Tom Dickins, Abby Dobson (Leonardo's Bride), Cash Savage, Brisbane artist Airling, and indie artist Greg Chiapello.

And if that wasn't enough, the ball will be followed by a quintessentially 1997 DJ set.

So grab your finest, trashiest '90s masquerade garb and head to HOTA.

Here are five nostalgic moments you'll experience at 'Young Hearts Run Free'.


Memorable Moments From Baz Luhrmann’s 'Romeo + Juliet' – Footage from 'Romeo + Juliet' will be on-screen during the show. Leo DeCaprio and crazy imagery of themes within the film.


The '90s Jams You'll Hear – So many jams. So many. From the likes of The Cardigans. Radiohead. Everclear. Garbage. Desree. Butthole Surfers... Brought to life by a stellar line-up of performers, as seen above.
