Event Details

Sydney’s Rock ‘n’ Roll & Alternative Market returns for a one-off special Vivid Sydney event, “Rock ‘n’ Roll & Alternative Market On Tour”. An outstanding array of stalls will join forces with a formidable line-up of Sydney bands for an inner west music and shopping extravaganza.

Cruise a carefully curated selection of retro, rock ‘n’ roll, alternative, vintage, handmade and unique goods. Feast on fabulous food, grab a beer from one of the bars and rock out to the live bands at either the retro or rock stage. Learn about the evolution of rockabilly and hillbilly guitar at Dr Banks Guitar Clinic or learn some tricks on the dance floor, with dancing classes across the eras from the 1920s to the swinging 60s, and experience the all-day, non-stop rockin’ vibe this market/festival is so well known for.
