There is so much to savour at Cooly Rocks On™ 2019 with a host of incredible element such as cars, live music, dance displays, parades and markets, all set on stages, streets, parks and venues within iconic Coolangatta.

Live entertainment will rock continually delivering Rock’n Roll, Swing and Rockabilly from the 50’s, 60’s and early 70’s and of course, the dance floors will be pumping. There will be roving entertainment, feature markets and food vendors activated in a beachside event site with everything walking distance.

The culture will ooze from every corner with roving entertainment adding to the festival atmosphere.

More than 700 cars displayed will underpin the classic culture and from this year, the cars displayed can be manufactured up to 1979 which incorporates the heady days of the ultimate muscle car era blending perfectly with the colourful classics.

Whilst there always are so many new pieces to Cooly Rocks On™, all the favourite elements are still there cementing the festival as a signature event in Queensland.

Car Cruises, the Cooly Rocks Street Parade, Poodle and Pug Parade, Miss Cooly Rocks On™ and Miss Rockabilly pageants, sky diving displays, fireworks, market stalls and food vendors are all prominent features of the 2019 program.

“We listen to our festival goers and are proud that this year we can deliver the best jam-packed celebration of cars and culture to date.”

He adds “The extension in the 70’s only adds to our audience’s experience, and what we are assembling will certainly makes us a not-to-be missed festival. What makes Cooly Rocks On™ so special, is our incredible beachside location, you can stay right in the heart of the action, everything is within walking distance and proudly, it is all completely free to attend!”
