Buckle up for the ride of your life at Cooly Rocks Onâ„¢, Australiaâ€™s favourite celebration of 50s and 60s nostalgia, held at the beachside destinations of Coolangatta and Tweed Heads.
Beaches, parklands, shops and cafes provide the perfect backdrop for around 1,300 custom and classic cars and hot rods, outdoor music stages, rockâ€™nâ€™roll and rockabilly bands, buskers, Miss Cooly Rocks Onâ„¢ and Miss Rockabilly pageants, retro markets, and the much-loved Cooly Rocks Onâ„¢ Street Parade.
This year Cooly Rocks Onâ„¢ takes the music to the streets and parks, with free rockâ€™nâ€™roll and rockabilly bands, artists and buskers performing on outdoor stages throughout the Festival precinct.
Brand new free events have been added to the Cooly Rocks Onâ„¢ mix this year, with fireworks for the kids, drive-in movies under the stars at Jack Evans Boat Harbour, pinball competitions, skydiving displays and a giant 20 x 10 metre skating rink, erected right alongside the boat harbour.
If you enjoy listening to some of Australiaâ€™s best bands, dancing in the sunshine, shopping for vintage treasures and reliving the â€˜happy daysâ€™ of the 50s and 60s, mark the dates in your diary and get along to Cooly Rocks Onâ„¢ 2017.
