Coolie Rocks On – Start Planning – 29th May – 8th June 2015

9 – 13 June 2021

Cooly Rocks On 2015 (previously know as WinterSun), is set to be the biggest 50s and 60s nostalgia festival in Australia! Over 2 kilometres of Rock ‘n roll, Rockabilly, Swing music and over 1,000 hot rods, custom cars and classic vehicles lining the stunning beachfront of Coolangatta and Tweed Heads all over two huge weeks from 9 – 13 June 2021.

Browse through over 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 100,000 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 Finale weekend where the streets are closed down, the outdoor stages are moved in and the streets come alive with street parades, shows, displays, competitions and over 1,000 cars parading from Kirra to Tweed Heads each evening.

The festival is free to enter and tickets to indoor shows may be purchased online or at the door. Don’t miss this very popular annual event as an entrant or a spectator, it’s a blast from the past in the most spectacular way.

Dean Ripley from Kirra Beach Apartments said  ”This is one event you must not miss. It always amazes me how Coolangatta is converted over night to the Rock N Roll capital of Australia.  The streets and shops are covered with memorabilia, 2 – 3 bands play each day in Griffith Street and the Esplanade with people are literally dancing where cars normally drive.

There are hundreds of immaculately restored classic cars being driven around the southern end of the Gold Coast.  In the front seats you will see both the driver and passengers dressed in cool rock and roll outfits.  If you haven’t got the picture yet, this is an outstanding 10 day festival generating an enormous amount of fun for all that attend. Don’t miss out and a fantastic family friendly event”
