8th – 10th February 2019
The 2019 Ballarat Beat Rockabilly Festival is a 2.5 day event in the heart of historic Lydiard Street Ballarat celebrating all things Rockabilly including the Music, the Fashion, the Cars, the Dancing and the Fun!
This year the festival will not be held on Lydiard Street itself, but in and around the George Hotel, the laneways and the Mining Exchange, along with a select few other spaces like The Hop Temple. This change occurred because crucial funding was cut to the festival, and also The George Hotel owner Gary unfortunately lost his battle with Brain Cancer in 2018.
Ballarat Beat 2019 will feature Rockabilly and Rock ‘n’ Roll bands as well as a Tiki Bar, Dance floors, Fashion Parades, Burlesque shows, a Best Dressed Competition and the Ballarat Beat Pinup Competition.
Free activities include a Car Show & Shine, Trade Stalls and more!
Located in the heart of Ballarat. This years Festival will also have a reduced amount of Free Live Entertainment. We hope to secure a new Major sponsor in 2020 and beyond.
