Time Out Melbourne

Gear up your hot rods and get your engines racing – Greazefest is heading back to town

GreazeFest is bigger than Christmas for the rockabilly set, with everything from the best in local and o/s rockabilly musos, to pin-ups, hot-rods and pinstripers (those dudes who paint thin, decorative lines on cars and motorcycle fuel tanks) converging on the one place.

For 14 years, the quiffed and coiffed set made an annual pilgrimage to Brisvegas for Greazefest. However, last year GreazeFest made it’s way to Melbourne for the first time and returns again for an even bigger bash, featuring US pin-up and bombshell Cherry Dollface with her vintage glamour workshops, Mimsy from Trailer Trash Tattoo who'll be inking away merrily in her perfect pink caravan, tiki carving workshops and a killer music lineup (including Pat Capocci, the Detonators and Benny and the Flybyniters).

While you're waiting, check out our interview with Mimsy.
