The idea of having an annual rockabilly festival was born during a quite boring winter in the Croatian region of Slavonia. Frail and shy in the beggining, the idea grew for a month or two and then we pushed it to a stage of developing a real project.

The first Hang Loose Rockabilly Festival was a one-day event that took place in the small town of Vinkovci at August 19, 2017., after 6 months of preparations. Three bands played that night at the gymnasium schoolyard, following attractive dance shows and a mini fair held by several craft-workshops (retro barber and hairdresser’s shops, pin-up clothes and accessories, vintage bicycles, tattoo artist and many others), and a vintage and American car & motorcycle exhibition.

Reactions to our newborn festival were more than positive, binding us to go a bit further in organizing future events. The second festival will take place on August 10 & 11, 2018., as a 2-day event with 5 rockabilly bands, two dancing groups performing stroll, rockabilly jive and related dances, pin-up photo shooting and much more.

If you are interested in visiting our event, please check the accommodation facilities in the area and feel free to contact us for further informations.
