LIVE at Rockin’ at the Drive-in Barn

The festival season is about to kick into full gear and we can’t wait! Enjoying the lovely summer sun, dancing to live music by awesome bands and hanging out with friends. The year started off great with an amazing night at Aloha Fest 2 and we have many more awesome events coming up! After a great night full of Surf music, we’re super stoked that we’re also hitting this Rockabilly Weekender, this summer!

On August 17th, 18th and 19th, you can come and see us LIVE at Rockin’ at the Drive-in Barn!

What happens at the barn…

This year will mark the 13th edition of Rockin’ at the Drive-in Barn. The festival first saw the light in 2006 as a one-day-event with four Rockabilly bands, and has now grown into a true Rockabilly Weekender with a grand total of ten live bands and five Rockin’ DJs on the bill. Driven by a never-ending thirst to discover new music, the guys and gals behind Rockin’ at the Drive-in Barn work up a sweat every year, to find new bands to put on the line up. And they seem to succeed every time!

Enough fun to go around

Aside from enjoying the sweet tunes of the Rockabilly line-up, shopping and the car show, there’s a lot more fun to go around at the Drive-in Barn: a Jive contest, a soapbox race, a flea market… you can even have Ritchie the Rockin’ Barber tame your wild locks!
