Celebrating it's 5th year of tearing up the dirt and churning out the sounds of high calibre Australian acts the annual 'Chopped Rod & Custom' festival is set to raise the bar and the roof once again!
With the fusion of vehicles, dirt drags, music and vintage style 'Chopped Rod & Custom' is one of the most unique & loved festivals in Australia. It is a unique cultural experience, similar to that of being thrown back to a 1950s/60s Hop Up Carnival.
Thousands of fans from around the country and across the sea's get back to the roots of Traditional Hot Rods, Customs, Bobbers & Choppers with Dirt Drags & Vintage Speedway. All of this along side 18 bands playing Rockabilly, Garage & Rock through to Blues, Country & Surf in the setting of the 'Tiki Palace' bar that drops you back into island life. With Cocktails, Tikis, & the ever famous 'Chopped DJ's', they are visually drowned in a setting of palms, bamboo and a giant Easter Island Head that lights up the sky at night by popping its top and flaming into the darkness.
Located one and a half hours north of Melbourne and the airport, 'Chopped Rod & Custom' it's the easy action packed weekend away, it's 3 days of all action guaranteed, rain, hail or shine!
