Festival Update – Wednesday 25 March, 2020


To our amazing fans, entrants, artists, sponsors, suppliers and our local business community, we wish we had better news to share.

With the current COVID-19 situation escalating around our shores, the Board and Management have made the difficult but responsible decision to cancel Cooly Rocks On for 2020 which was scheduled to ignite our precinct with cars, music and culture from the 50s, 60s and 70s from June 3 to 7.

Cooly Rocks On is a celebration of much simpler times and now more than ever, we would have loved the chance to bring those glory days back to you this June.

While we know this news is going to be disappointing to so many people, the health and wellbeing of our community and visitors is paramount.

We will be fully refunding all of those who have made bookings with us such as car entrants and vendors, and we can assure you we are working through this as our priority. As we prepare to reverse almost a year of planning, we ask you to please be patient as we roll out this process.

We know that our loyal festival-goers and those who live, breathe and love the culture will be ready to celebrate this special era when Cooly Rocks On returns from 9 – 13 June, 2021.

For now, rock on wherever you are and take care of yourselves.

Car Booking Refunds

We can confirm all 2020 car entrants will receive a full refund, including booking fees, for their 2020 car spaces. Entry details for the Classic Car Show ‘n’ Shine for 2021 will be communicated at a later time. At this stage we are unable to roll over bookings for car spaces to 2021. We appreciate your patience as we firstly work through the refund process for 2020.

Rock at Home

We can’t bring you Cooly Rocks On this year, but we can still bring you rockin’ tunes and vintage vibes to get you through. Crank it up and rock on at home with our first list of rockin’ tunes brought to you by our amazing Cooly Rocks On artists!
