Cooly Rocks On Festival

Every year the twin towns of Coolangatta/Tweed Heads comes alive with the Cooly Rocks On Festival  held in the first two weeks of June over 11 days.

Cooly Rocks On is a 1950s and 1960s nostalgia festival with:

  • classic cars,
  • rock ‘n’ roll music
  • dancing
  • fashions and hairstyles
  • Elvis impersonators
  • Poodle parade

'Cooly Rocks On' the biggest 50s and 60s nostalgia festival in Australia! Over 2km of rock ‘n' roll, rockabilly, swing and over 1,000 hot rods, custom cars and classic cars lining the stunning beachfront of Coolangatta and Tweed Heads.

Browse through 100 retro market stalls and 100 craft market stalls, take your taste buds back to the 50s and 60s with vintage styled food and join in the atmosphere that draws over 70,000 people back year after year.

Music fills the venues, more retro cars roll up each day and the festival builds and builds, culminating in a Grand Final weekend where the streets are closed down, the outdoor stages are moved in and the streets are alive with street parades, shows, displays and over 1,000 cars parading from Kirra to Tweed Heads each evening.

Keep your eye on the program as it builds in the months leading up to June and stay tuned to the 'Cooly Rocks On' Facebook page for regular updates on local, national and international acts plus stacks more”..
