A new house for pumped up Rockabilly Rhythms and the best boogie beats this side of the bridge.
Our friends at the iconic Pumphouse Sydney are partnering with us this year to showcase a line-up of Sydney’s best Rockabilly bands every Saturday night across the festival.
This heritage building built in 1891 was once a pumping station and the heart and soul of Sydney’s power needs.
With a food menu inspired by Americana, and a location that is quintessentially Sydney it is the perfect place to come together for a dance and prove this city is powered by creative culture, live music and healthy dose of Rock’n’Roll.
Admission to Pumphouse is free. RSVP here and invite your friends to the event!
