The Scooter event, that has been an integral part of the Rossendale 60’s Festival for the past 3 years, has a new venue this year, and the organisers are taking the opportunity to rebrand the event ‘Scoot Rossendale‘. The new venue is  Bacup Cricket Club and grounds, which is perfect for the event both as a venue and Bacup’s central location within the Rossendale Valley being at the crossroads of the major roads from Burnley, Rochdale (including the M62),  Todmorden and Rawtenstall (which includes the M66 motorway).It provides a great opportunity to ride through the beautiful Rossendale valley adding to the 60’s weekend atmosphere along the way.The event will be held on Sunday 11th September.

Music will be provided by Burnley based Northern Soul DJ Kieran Woodward, and Accrington band The Inciders. Formed in 2009, The Inciders have been all over Lancashire and beyond to spread their love of Ska and Reggae Music. There’s nothing better for us as a band to perform to fellow lovers of this dynamic style. Get out your docs, pork pie hat and two-tones and come and relive the good old days of music!They play a variety of Ska and Reggae Music from across the decades…From Toots and The Maytals to The Specials…From Bob Marley to UB40 and the Clash!!
