Posted By dm_kat On April 10, 2014

Head to the Gold Coast to experience the Cooly Rocks On festival.Love 50s and 60s nostalgia? Love Cooly Rocks On!

The sunny shores of the Gold Coast are the place to be this year from May 30 to June 9, when the Cooly Rocks On festival comes to town.

Make your way to the Coolangatta and Tweed Heads beachfront for two weeks of all things 1950s and 60s retro, with a hefty serving of rock'n'roll, rockabilly and swing music to wow the crowds. 

Not only will there be hot sounds, but also hot cars, with 1,000 custom and classic vehicles celebrating the retro period expected to rock up throughout the festival. 

There will also be an amazing range of retro stalls selling everything from crafts and clothing that take inspiration from the rocking 50s and 60s. When you've worked up an appetite, you can also feast on the fare from the many vintage food stalls - sounds pretty mouthwatering, right?

There's a great event to be enjoyed every day, with a slick line-up of nostalgia acts set to hit the stage - but don't forget the special events! 

Catch the Cooly Rocks On Street Parade on the morning of June 7, with its vintage cars, boats and floats, and plenty of dancing, singing and entertaining for the whole family. Then there's the Ultimate Drive Day challenge, which is sure to be a thrill to watch! 

The Poodle-Oodle Parade is a particularly fun event, where all things poodle related will be dressed up and celebrated! 

Book your holiday accommodation in advance for this event. Mantra Coolangatta Beach is right amongst all the action, close to the beach as well as shops and dining options. Choose from a studio or a one-, two- or three-bedroom apartment, giving you space to bring the whole family along, travel as a couple or enjoy a solo escape.
