Rock and Roll Dancing competition
The new ‘Cooly Rocks On’ festival, which ran from the 3rd to the 13th of June, has overtaken Wintersun as Australia’s premier 50’s and 60’s nostalgia festival.
Featuring more than 40 Rock n Roll, Swing and Rockabilly Bands performing at eleven venues and nine outdoor stages, Cooly Rocks On hit the right note for visitors and locals alike.
Classic Cars hot rods competition Coolangatta
Over a thousand cars from the bygone era of the 50’s and 60’s were also revved up for the festival. Classic cars such as Mustangs, Mercury’s and Model T Fords all took part in the Classic Car Cruise along the coast and through central Coolangatta.

The largest collection of Elvis Presley memorabilia in the country was on display at Tweed Ultima, while the Harley Davidson display on Marine Parade attracted a lot of interest too.
With the departure of Wintersun nostalgia festival to Port Macquarie after more than twenty years at the twin towns of Coolangatta – Tweed Heads on the Queensland New South Wales border, Cooly Rocks On was conceived.

The carnival atmosphere was heightened by a Fair ground which sprang up overnight at Greenmount beach with bumper cars, Fairy floss and a giant Ferris wheel
Cold weather didn’t deter spectators but rain squalls on Sunday forced the beach side stage to close. The scheduled bands; The Headliners, Round Mountain Girls and The Detonators, relocated to Greenmount Beach Club which was doing a roaring trade.
Over 80 thousand people are estimated to have attended Cooly Rocks On and many said they had already booked their accommodation for next year.
