Cooly Rocks On Festival Guide

The Cooly Rocks On festival debuted in 2011 and has since grown to become Australia’s largest rock’n’roll and nostalgia event. The festival lasts five days, from June 8 to June 12. Every day brings something fresh to anticipate. Don’t pass up the opportunity to participate in this fun celebration. Every visitor will discover something of interest.

Car fans, for example, will enjoy Cooly Rocks On Show’ N’ Shine, where they can browse over 900 antique vehicles, motorcycles, and hot rods and talk to the owners. There will also be car runs where you may meet other vehicle enthusiasts. On June 8, the SCARAB Car Club will cruise to the Gold Coast Motor Museum. The Gold Coast Muscle Car Club will take you to SEVEN82MOTORS in the evening. Then, on June 9, see Top Gun: Maverick at the Yatala Drive-In.

Do you like oldies but goodies? Then don’t miss Cooly Rocks On’s rockin roster of Australian musicians, such as A Band Called Twang, the “tip of the top of the Australian rockabilly scene”. Dezzie D and the Stingrayz, an original artist and covers band, strive to maintain that old school sound. Ella Fontaine, singer, songwriter, burlesque performer, MC, and front-woman for Australian rockabilly/rock ‘n’ roll band The SugarShakers will astound you. Jake and the Cadillacs, from Australia’s east coast, are sure to get you going with their high-octane, high-class rockabilly, rock ‘n’ roll, and swing style songs. All these and more.

Aside from classic cars and retro music, the festival includes the Cooly Rocks On Pin-up Pageant, the Swing Ball at Elvis Marquee, Dance Workshops and quaint markets.
