Rock ‘n’ roll, cigars, whiskey, and a fucking fantastic haircut. Scumbash is a lifestyle. So that’s what you can expect on the festival site: not only music but the full package including haircuts by the world-famous Schorem Barbiers, sick art by tattoo artists and so on.
Inspired by Speedfest, the men from Rotterdam’s Schorem Barbier decided in 2013 to organize festival ScumBash that matches the look and feel of their own internationally celebrated barbershop in the Dutch harbor city.
Schorem is an old school barbershop in the heart of the working class city of Rotterdam. The shop specializes in the classic cuts that have proven themselves over the decades. Best of all: Schorem will attend SchumBash 2023!
