Premier Northern NSW nostalgia event Wintersun 2.0 takes over the art deco town of Murwillumbah for its third year of festivities.
Wintersun 2.0 is a retro vintage car and music market fiesta; a celebration of all the good things that come from re-purposing vintage fashion, vehicles and music, into a modern expression of culture and lifestyle. It started as an idea between two old friends who met at a car show 25 years ago, John Valenti and Steve Bowman.
Born from these two creative rebels yearning for an old fashioned car show and a misspent youth never forgotten, the Wintersun 2.0 revival began.
Wintersun 2.0 is relaxed family friendly event that encourages the freedom of the road and the passion of the street machine enthusiast, offering two weekends of holiday activity to every road trip loving, classic car owning, dancing cool cat and their friends and family. The entrants take part in the best that the Tweed Shire has to offer in coastal attractions as well as the lush rainforest valley surrounding Mt Warning NSW.
The event features rock ‘n roll and rockabilly bands, 500+ classic cars and hot rods, retro fashion and memorabilia markets, gourmet food trucks, free kids entertainment, selfie spots, dance workshops, glamour shots for cars, show ‘n’ shine awards, best dressed competition, daily door prizes, beer garden, and a huge Saturday night street party. In addition there are car cruises throughout the spectacular Tweed Valley, rock n roll party boat cruises, driving events and a three-day rockabilly dance party at Seagulls. With live music throughout both days, and an outdoor dancefloor, it’s an action packed weekend with an easy country vintage vibe, with plenty of beefed up motor noise and good old boys spinning a yarn.
The band line up for 2019 includes some of the most popular bands on the East Coast, such as:
• The Memphis Cowboys
• Colt Seavers Band
• A Band Called Twang
• Cherry Divine
• Tommy Memphis
• Blood Rule
• The Bowery Boys
• Little Stevie and the Tailfins
• The Linelockers
• B- Daddy and the Double D’s
• The Argonauts

Wintersun 2.0 takes over the showgrounds in the art deco town of Murwillumbah, NSW from 31 May to 3 June 2019, and will be followed up on 6 to 8 June with a massive three day Rockabilly Dance Party at Seagulls Club Tweed Heads. Visit the website for more information.
