Calafell High Rock-a-billy Festival, welcome to the fifties - Catalonia news

Quiffs, grease and red lips. Tatoos, Hawaiian shirts and creeper shoes. Chevrolets, Chevys, Cadillacs. And, of course, rock and roll. Calafell (Tarragona) celebrates one more year the High Rock-a-billy Festival, which will be held from 5 to September 9.

The peculiarity of the festival are its participants, who come from all over the world, and bring it to life. Dressed in the fifties fashion, walking the promenade, drinking beer on the terraces and showing off one's good look on the beach.


Music is all over. Concerts and dances are performed day and night. The best rockabilly bands and DJ’s, such as Royce Porter, Roddy Jackson, The Playboys, The Quasars or Lil’Esther, will turn Calafell into a real ballroom. Quite a show, both for participants and for curious ones.


The program is complemented by a market, where visitors can purchase all kind of items related to US music and fashion of the fifties, such as records, clothing, shoes and accessories.
