Cooly Rocks On

Community Event

5 Jun 2024 to 9 Jun 2024 Annual Event

Cooly Rocks On returns to Coolangatta on the Gold Coast to celebrate the motors, music and lifestyle of yesteryear. Featuring one of Australia’s best Show ‘N’ Shine displays, the festival showcases an impressive collection of hot rods, kustom vehicles, lowbrow art and more, with more than 900 vehicles lining the streets of Coolangatta.

As for the music, some of the best rock ‘n’ roll, swing, rockabilly and tribute artists from around Australia and beyond will take to the stage throughout the festival, including international Elvis Tribute Artists Dwight Icenhower (USA), Louis Brown (UK) and Che Orton (NZ).

Cooly Rocks On is also one of two festivals held in Australia to host an official preliminary round of the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest, with the winner heading straight to Elvis Week in Memphis, USA.

The annual Cooly Rocks Pin-up Pageant is another festival favourite and if you’re in need of some retro goods and memorabilia, make sure to check out the Nostalgia Markets on the Coolangatta beachfront.

With many free and ticketed entertainment options across the action-packed five-day festival, we can’t wait to turn back the clock on Coolangatta!
