CAMPERDOWN is set to rock again later this month for the annual Camperdown Cruise Rockabilly Weekend.
Dozens of bands, some international, performing rockabilly and other music genres will perform at town venues during the three-day festival from October 26-28.
The festival encompasses all things rockabilly, from custom cars to dance, fashion and art. Displays and stalls are set among Camperdown’s historic avenue of elms and heritage venues such as the Theatre Royal.
A highlight is the display of custom and classic cars and hot rods.
The Colac Rockers will entertain with dance displays and beginner dance lessons. Dance competitions will give the more experienced the opportunity to impress.
For the enthusiasts of fashion of bygone eras, there will be vintage men’s and women’s fashion parades throughout the weekend and a best dressed competition.
Art exhibitions include those by renowned carver of tiki art objects Marcus Thorn and tiki/retro artist Paul Hughes.
Melbourne’s Kustom Lane Gallery will have its retro and quirky art on show and a pinstriping workshop will give people a chance to learn the skill.
Dozens of stalls feature rockabilly memorabilia and collectables.
