Over five action packed days, Coolangatta and Tweed will come to life to celebrate everything we love about the 50s and 60s.

  • Rock ‘n’ roll music
  • Dancing
  • Fashions and hairstyles
  • Elvis impersonators
  • Poodle parade


'Cooly Rocks On' is 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”..
