Mods vs. Rockers Festival: June 18th & 19th 2011

Posted by Dee-Ann On June - 10 - 20113,867 views

Not so very long ago, The Mods and The Rockers where true rivals, hating each others lifestyle, clothing, hairdo, music, language and cycles. The fighting battles at English beaches -mid 60’s- were covered and hyped by the world-media.

Not everyone was thinking square though… Ringo Stars’ famous answer to the question “Are you a Mod or a Rocker..?”:  “I’m a MOCKER!”

Nowadays there’s lot’s of mutual respect between The Mods and The Rockers, for the vintage cycles, the scooters, the music, etc. That’s why The Road Rocket Cafe-Racer Club & Amsterdam BeatClub got together to organize Hollands’ very first “Mods vs. Rockers Festival”!

Saturday June 18th – 3PM ’till 2AM
Sunday June 19th, after breakfast: The Burn-Up Drive!
