FREE ENTRY! - MUSIC - STALLS - FOOD & DRINK - ACTIVITIES - CHILDREN'S PLAYGROUND

Champion Sound and the residents of Rocklea are proud to bring you this event in celebration of human spirit and resilience. In January 2011 floods, Rocklea was among the hardest-hit suburbs. Many lost everything they had. Many weren't insured and, of those that were, many were refused a payout. Nearly 18 months on, the work and sheer effort the residents have put into rebuilding their homes is evident. A large number of people have returned to their homes and Rocklea is slowly returning to life.

This event is to show support to those effected, respect to those who supported, and love to the people of Rocklea and all flood-effected regions.

Family-friendly and FREE, this event will be held at Kookaburra Park in Rocklea (a 2 minute walk from Salisbury or Rocklea train stations) from 12 noon until late. Featuring a stellar line-up of Brisbane DJs and performers, expect fun-filled reggae vibes from start to finish.

There will also be a number of stalls selling clothing, food and drink and more, plus activities and a children's playground.

More details to be announced as we get closer to the date, but make sure this one is locked in your diaries!

the heavens opened up but rocklea revival went ahead, theres no stopping champion sound!

we parked our car a few streets away and could feel the basslines as we walked to the park. the grass was wet but spirits were high for this big event. great to see families out, people of all ages enjoying reggae and the community spirit.

big respect to john, chris, schleke, basmati and all the crew who made it happen. hope to see more events like this in the future!
