A arrest warrant has been issued for a man who failed to front court over a brawl involving rival bikie gangs on the Gold Coast.

Matt Boardman, 24, is one of eight men charged with affray over the fight at the Cooly Rocks nostalgia festival on the southern end of the Gold Coast in June.

Boardman failed to appear at Southport Magistrates Court on Monday for a scheduled mention of his case, and a warrant for his arrest was issued.

The other men charged are set to return to court on Tuesday.

Former NRL player Anthony Watts was convicted in late June for his part in the brawl.

Watts was caught on film at the vintage nostalgia event fighting alongside Finks members against the Nomads.

He pleaded guilty to one count of affray and was sentenced to 120 hours of community service.
