Get ready for the annual GreazeFest Kustom Kulture Festival as it rocks and rolls into town this July, bringing together all things rockabilly, vintage and retro.
From Friday 31 July to Sunday 2 August, Rocklea Showgrounds will come alive with rockabilly bands, DJs, market stalls, artist displays, fashion parades, tiki carvings and more than 700 dazzling hot rods.
Presented by Robot Productions, the festival will also be held in Melbourne and is expected to attract over 15,000 rock’n’roll fans between the two events.
Whether you’re into cars, music, fashion, art or you just like to shop, GreazeFest has something for everyone to enjoy.
For the rev heads
If you love classic cars and hot rods, GreaseFest’s Hot Rod Show is something you don’t want to miss. Held on the Saturday and Sunday of the festival, the Hot Rod Show will showcase hundreds of eye catching classics.
The show will also feature California’s own ‘Master of the Fineline’, Von Hot Rod, the king of pin striping and custom lines. Von Hot Rod will be holding special pin striping workshops for dedicated students.
For the fashionistas
GreazeFest will hold fashion and pinup parades on Saturday and Sunday, showcasing the culture, style and vintage fashions of the rockabilly and rock’n’roll era.
If you want to look like a pinup girl, check out the Cherry Dollface Workshops. Cherry will share her flamboyant finesse and passion for vintage hair and makeup, and show you the ropes.
For the music lovers
GreazeFest’s music program is a big part of the event’s appeal, and always features a slew of quality rockabilly acts. This year’s lineup includes The Go Getters from Sweden, Will and the Highrollers from the USA, New Zealand’s Labaetta Suede and The Motel 6 and more!
For the art aficionados
This year, GreazeFest will not only feature the Kustom Art Show displaying paintings, carvings, metal work and photography from Australian artists but it will also hold a Skateboard Art Competition, where a group of artists will battle it out for best skateboard deck art.
The festival will also house over 150 market stalls including hairdressers, tattooists, vintage sellers, clothing specialists, automotive traders, vinyl record sellers and photographers.
