Part market, part music festival, the Sydney Rock ‘n’ Roll & Alternative Market is back with a vengeance in 2014 as a two-day weekend event for the first time in its history.

With the biggest selection yet of over 80 stalls, you can find everything from rock ‘n’ roll and vintage clothing, records, comics and tattoo art to retro hair and make-up stylists, including a new alternative section which caters to those with darker tastes.

Not only are you guaranteed a unique shopping experience, but prepare to be entertained by a vintage and classic car, motorcyle and scooter display, as well as an enormous lineup of rockabilly bands and DJs.

But the rock ‘n’ roll doesn’t end there. If you’re hankering for some howlin’ blues and swingin’ ska, make sure you head along to the Gala Evening happening on the first night of the big weekender to catch the likes of Mojo Juju, A Man Called Stu (Stu Arkoff of Zombie Ghost Train), The Satellites, and Spurs for Jesus (pictured) with special guest burlesque performers Frankie Valentine & Kira Hu-La-La.

To get a slice of the action on Saturday February 8 and Sunday February 9, scoot on down to Manning House at Sydney Uni, where it kicks off across all three floors.
