THE Greazefest Kustom Kulture Festival rolls into Melbourne this weekend, following the Brisbane event held last week.

The car show always attracts a great range of rods, classics and customs. The judging is low-key, with the main awards being for King Kustom and King Rat.

Rockabilly music is a big focus of Greazefest and this year’s event features Swedish act The Go Getters, Will & The Hi-Rollers from Las Vegas, Labretta Suede and The Motel 6 from New Zealand and Aussie Pat Capocci, plus heaps more. There will also be plenty of good eating, drinking and dancing!

There is also a big market area which can sort you out with a fresh haircut, a new outfit and even a tattoo.

Greazefest Melbourne takes over the Sandown Racecourse from August 7-9, for more info check out the website.
