Cooly Rocks On!

On a weekend consisting of rock and roll, rumbling engines and some very cool characters, ‘Cooly Rocks On’ held in Coolangatta brings together the motors, music and lifestyle of yesteryear, and once again attracted thousands of people from all over Australia. It was actually the first time I’ve ever attended the event, and from the moment I arrived, the town was buzzing with excitement from one end to the other.
Each year, Cooly Rocks On packs a powerful punch when it comes to live music with an incredible line-up of some of the best rock ‘n’ roll, swing, rockabilly and tribute artists from around the world, turning back the clock on Coolangatta as they dish out some absolute classics. And if you’re like me and are a mad Elvis fan, then you were in for a very enjoyable weekend, especially considering Cooly Rocks On is also one of ten festivals held around the world to host an official preliminary round of the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest, an Elvis Presley Enterprises event, with the winner heading straight to Elvis Week, in Memphis, USA to represent Australia.
