SCUMBASH 2014-2022
Inspired by Speedfest (Peter Pan Speedrock’s annual party in Eindhoven’s Klokgebouw, which now goes by the name Helldorado), the men from Rotterdam’s Schorem Barbier decided in 2013 to also organize a festival of their own that would match the look and feel of their own internationally celebrated (and worldwide frequently copied) barbershop in the Dutch harbor city, which occupies its own unique place in the festival world. The slogan “one day of pure goddamn rock ‘n’ roll” fully covers the load.

Not only decent people come to ScumBash, especially lovers of psychobilly, punk and garage rock, hardcore, surf, ska, metal, outlaw country, roots and related music styles. In other words: party animals with a Rock ‘n’ Roll lifestyle. The successful combination of the venue, the atmospheric decor (including a vibrant lifestyle area) and a rock-solid program makes this authentic event unique.

The first three editions in 2014, 2015 and 2016 were held in the striking Van Nellefabriek, one of the Netherlands’ premier industrial monuments. For the fourth edition in 2017, ScumBash is moving to the rougher RDM Submarine Wharf in the Rotterdam harbor, which matches the festival’s tough and atmospheric character one-on-one.
