Get ready to start your engines for when GreazeFest rocks and rolls into Redland Showgrounds in August!!

Immerse yourself in the thrilling world of hot rods, custom cars, and rockabilly culture as GreazeFest returns to the Redlands! This highly anticipated three-day festival promises to deliver an action-packed weekend, filled stunning motor vehicles, talented rockabilly bands, inspiring art displays and non-stop entertainment.

The hot rod show takes centre stage as enthusiasts from across Australia showcase their candy-coloured chrome dream machines, these beauties are a sight to behold.

More than just cars, GreazeFest features three days of music and cultural attractions. Performing will be a talented line-up of 22 live bands and DJs from the USA and Australia. Tip of the top is Deke Dickerson (USA), the Ameripolitan Musician of the Year who revives rock and roll, rockabilly, western swing, rhythm and blues and surf music.

“This music is every bit as vital and important as jazz or classical. Wherever I go, anywhere on the planet, people love this music.” says Dickerson.

Joining Deke Dickerson from the USA is Californian musician Mitch Polzak, who performs rockabilly and 1960s country music with the religious fervor of Jerry Lee Lewis and the sincerity of Johnny Cash and always brings his shows to a fevered pitch of joyous energy.  

Australian acts include the Detonators (Vic), Rusty Pinto (WA), The Flattrakkers (NSW), Kieron Mcdonald (Vic), ‘Kid’ James (Vic), The Linelockers (NSW) plus local acts Peaches and The Alphasonics, A Band Called Twang, Lovejoy Surf and many more.

Special guests at GreazeFest are The Honey Sliders, who will be performing the Rockin' Beatles, recreating rock’n’roll tunes from the fab' four. Led by Danny Widdicombe, The Honey Sliders have been performing remarkable concept shows honouring many iconic acts from the past century.

The GreazeFest vintage and retro markets will make their welcome return with specialist market stalls featuring retro and vintage clothing, automobilia, accessories, model cars and more, while gourmet food trucks and licenced bars plan to keep revellers satisfied across the three days.

And don't miss the Pinup Party, a fantastic opportunity for people with a passion for fashion to meet and connect with pinups, photographers, and supporters in a colourful and fun atmosphere. There’ll be drinks and treats, plus lots of opportunities to capture the moment with selfies and photos amidst the dazzling hot rods.

One of the highlights of GreazeFest will be the presence of esteemed guest artists, including Von Hot Rod (USA), Katt Mercy (USA) and Kane-o (Australia) who will showcase their skills in the art of pinstriping. Witness their mastery as they create perfect mesmerizing designs right before your eyes.

For Australian artists, GreazeFest is hosting a Hub Cap Art competition, where invited artists showcase their unique style by painting, pinstriping, sculpting a chrome hub cap. All submissions will be on display on Saturday and Sunday at GreazeFest and visitors can cast their vote for their favourite piece. Proceeds of the art show will go in support of the RSPCA.

"GreazeFest is not just a festival, it's a celebration of our lifestyle. We call it kustom kulture, where hot rods, rockabilly and the rock’n’roll lifestyle come together. It’s colourful, engaging and exciting, with an inspiring and supportive community. Whether people are here for the weekend, or for the long haul, we are thrilled to bring everyone together for an amazing weekend," said Lori Lee Cash, the creator behind GreazeFest.
