8pm till 9pm

Jennifer Lopez Experience

Taking on the mammoth personality that is Jennifer Lopez is none other than Hannah Canon, former Australian Latin dance world representative, international singer and Latina powerhouse.

With the very first Australia JLo tribute act, this production is high energy, great attitude and even better dynamics.

Celebrating JLo in the best way possible, this is an absolutely authentic recreation that contains the very essence of all things vibrant Latin culture and the powerhouse that is Jennifer Lopez.

“Hannah is an amazing singer and an amazing dancer, this will be a show to see,” said Louie Lee Feltrin, the headliner of the night.

“I’ve been dying to work with her for years, and finally we were able to collaborate on this project. There has been nothing to this scale before and we are very excited!”

Hannah brings with her extensive Latin dancing skills and costuming, ensuring that the Carnivale night starts off right.

“And what a better way to start New Year celebrations than with the biggest party star, JLo?”

Get Lucky

9pm till 10pm

Kylie Minogue Showgirl Tribute

This tribute show performer is the hidden gem of Australian music, having spent over 20 years performing across the globe for the likes of the Prince of Dubai, the King and Queen of Malaysia, Birds of Tokyo and John Farnham.

On New Year’s Eve, J’aime Holland is gracing the Airlie Beach Hotel stage and bringing with her an act like no other.

Her unstoppable Kylie Minogue Showgirl performance is an adrenaline fuelled thrill, featuring the Minogue hits that everyone has come to love, her hottest tracks and everything in between.

No noughty hit will be missed either, perfect for the super fan or casual listener.

“J’aime ensures that the party continues and is in full force, with non-stop Kylie tracks!”

And with the stage absolutely full of mesmerising dancers, fantastic live musicians, and J’aime’s own dazzling costumes, she ensures an hour of non-stop power.

“People who don’t even go to the pub will stop by just cause it’s Kylie Minogue,” Louie said.

“We just want people to get out of their seats and party like no tomorrow, with J’aime bringing the best vocals and performance.”

From every hit and every note, Jaime will be sure to bring the energy, the adrenaline, and great music.

“Back-to-back we have two great performances by two fantastic singers. The Carnivale spirit will be alive and well with Hannah and J’aime.

Get Entertained

10pm till 12am

Robbie Williams Experience

Airlie Beach favourite, Louie Lee Feltrin returns to send us off to 2024.

Louie’s Robbie Williams experience is unlike anything else, and Louie works tirelessly to ensure that every single person in his audience is having the time of their lives.

With over 20 years’ experience articulately recreating the legendary Robbie Williams, Louie offers a performance like no other.

And this production, a creation of Louie’s own, is out of this world!

“We’ll go hard and sing big, cruising us into the New Year with a standout show! It’ll be a great way to close out 2023 and welcome 2024, with the sounds of Robbie Williams.”

With a big finale song planned, with Hannah, J’aime and the team up on stage with him, Louie will send off 2023 with the tracks of Robbie and the echoes of the Airlie Beach Foreshore fireworks in the background.

“We wanted to do our own fireworks, but Airlie Beach has beaten us to it, and I couldn’t think of a better send off!”

And the party continues into the New Year, with Louie and the Party Boyz, Hannah and J’aime all prepped and ready to get atop the Airlie Beach Hotel on January 1, and welcome the recovery party in style.
