Re-live the cool vibes of the motors, music and lifestyle from the 50s, 60s and 70s at this year's Cooly Rocks On Festival on the Gold Coast from 5 to 9 June 2024.

Cooly Rocks On is Australia's largest nostalgia festival celebrating the motors, music and lifestyle of some of the coolest generations who have come before us. Think slick-backed hair, full twirl skirts, James Dean, Marilyn Monroe, Saturday nights at the drive-in movies and singing along to Elvis and The Beatles and you have a small taste of just how exceptional the cultures of the 50s, 60s and 70s were all about.

Now Cooly Rocks On Festival brings them back to life with 5 days of cultural displays and activities that will have you bouncing back to the beats of an era that still lives on today.

The Festival began in 2011 having formed out of the Winter Sun Festival. Cooly of course is the shortened name given to Cooloongatta by the locals, for this surfing and lifesaving hub of the Coast. From its beginnings, the Festival has grown and grown and is expected to exceed 80,000 visitors this year.

In keeping with its theme, the Festival is jam-packed with live entertainment and events including:

  • Rock'n'roll and rockabilly artists
  • A whole Cadillac full of Elvis Tribute Artists
  • Rock n roll and swing dancing
  • Contestants competing in the Pin Up Pageant (Classic and Rockabilly styles). Entrants are featured across three rounds including ‘Day Wear’, ‘Uniqueness of You’, and ‘Evening Wear’
  • Polished and shined classic, customs, hot rods and muscle car display along Marine Parade, Griffith Street and Goodwin Street
  • The Saturday night car cruise where motors are revved and driven along the beachside precinct.

  • Cooly Rocks On will be taking over the Marine Parade at Coolangatta. Coolangatta is located at the southern end of the Gold Coast near Tweed Heads and the Queensland/New South Wales border, 103 kilometres from Brisbane.
