Cooly Rocks On has kicked into gear with Australia’s much-loved nostalgia festival set to take Coolangatta back in time from Wednesday 7 June.
Last year the festival welcomed record crowds who had made the pilgrimage to the Gold Coast to enjoy the motors, music and lifestyle of yesteryear over five jam-packed days. Now it is time to do it all over again with an even more exciting program of international acts and plenty of music, fashion, and classic cars.
Joining us for the ride in 2023 are some familiar friends in our Sponsor Family and we look forward to welcoming some new Cooly Rocks On partners.
We are incredibly proud to have MND and Me Foundation on board as our Official Charity Partner for the 2023 festival. The MND and Me Foundation is a wonderful organisation that supports people and their families living with Motor Neurone Disease (MND) in Queensland, while striving towards finding a cure.
Cooly Rocks On fans can show their support by purchasing raffle tickets at the festival and will go in the draw to win a 1954 Chevrolet Hot Rod Pick Up Truck valued at $200,000! All proceeds will go directly to the MND and ME Foundation to help fund their ongoing MND research efforts.
“The MND and Me Foundation is looking forward to a great weekend at Cooly Rocks On raising money to fund vital research into finding a cure for motor neurone disease. What better raffle prize for this event than a 1954 Chevy COE Pick Up that has a 2022 Camaro V8 engine under the hood!” – Jane Milne, MND and Me Foundation CEO.
Iconic motorcycle company, Indian Motorcycle is again partnering with Cooly Rocks On as an Official Support Partner. The Indian Motorcycle brand embodies the nostalgic and historic nature of the festival and even Elvis owned one! Check out the latest rides at the Indian Motorcycle display on the Coolangatta foreshore throughout the festival.
Shannons is once again joining our festival family as an Official Support Partner in 2023. A leading insurance and auction house for veteran, vintage and classic vehicles and motorcycles, we couldn’t think of a more perfect fit for Australia’s award-winning nostalgia festival.
New to the family is award-winning event specialist electricians and engineers, EVENTelec – there’re the ones supplying power and turning up the dial to get things buzzing this festival! EVENTelec have been powering major events and festivals across a variety of sectors since 1996 and are a new Community Partner across Major Events Gold Coast’s four annual music festivals.
“Our synergies are very similar, and we both aim to deliver world class festivals while developing and supporting the local economy and attracting visitors to the region.” – EVENTelec
We also welcome Triple M to our Sponsor Family as a Community Partner in 2023.
Clean Vibes will be on site helping us reduce waste at Cooly Rocks On this year and minimising the impact on the beautiful Coolangatta foreshore.
And we are proud to be working with the Yugambeh Regional Aboriginal Corporation Alliance (YRACA) who provide cultural guidance across all our festivals.
Coming through the Gold Coast Airport to visit Cooly Rocks On, the sensational Pacific Belles will transport visitors back in time from the minute they land with sweet tunes from the 40s as part of the festival’s partnership with the airport.
Cooly Rocks On wouldn’t be the award-winning festival it is, without the ongoing support from our strategic partner, the City of Gold Coast and major partner the Queensland government via Tourism and Events Queensland.
As we prepare to start our engines, we want to send a huge welcome to our 2023 Cooly Rocks On Sponsor Family. See you all in Coolangatta for five days of cars, music and fashion.
