Geetroit Rocks as Motor City Music Festival celebrates Geelong's past and present, with a great live soundtrack.

Held over the (Victorian) Labour Day long weekend each March at the Geelong Show Grounds, there is something for everyone to enjoy. Whether you like rock, roots, blues, country or a great tribute act, we've got you covered.

Friday night and Saturday is for the over 18s. Enjoy the mix of over 40 acts over five stages (one open air) as you chow down on fare from the famous food trucks. Sip on a craft beer from the beer hall or relax in one of the cider or wine bars in between sets.

Don't forget to download the free MCMF App and plan your weekend. You can also share your photos in real time, as a live feed to Motor City Music Festival wall will be showcasing your snaps.

On Sunday kids are free so bring the tribe and enjoy quality family entertainment. There will be vintage steam engine displays and a steam truck driving around the site dispensing Beer Goodness. Watch the air guitar competition, Totem Tennis Open or compete in the colouring in competition. There is a great line-up of children's entertainment. The weekend will culminate in the now-famous Motor City Music Festival fireworks display.

With free on-site parking and free carnival rides all weekend, head to Geelong's own Motor City Music Festival and help celebrate what's great about the town.
