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?
