Green light for the Isle of Wight International Scooter Rally – earlybird tickets available | NEWS
Following hot on the heels of Big 7 and Cleethorpes we’ve got some more positivity for the summer! VFM have released their earlybird tickets and entertainment details for this year’s Isle of Wight International Scooter Rally.
The August Bank Holiday mammoth event has moved to a new location on the other side of the island, which will give a whole new feel to the rally. With new pubs, bars and posing spots to explore it’ll bring some much-needed excitement and mystery back to the Wight island. You can even book glamping spots if you fancy a bit of pre-erected luxury after a dismal 12-months or so away from normality. Go on, treat yourself…
King Salami & The Team
Full details are on the flyer above but expect great entertainment on the airfield campsite from Angelo Starr and The Team, plus highly-acclaimed musical maestros, King Salami & the Cumberland 3 (as well as others over the weekend). The resident VFM DJ’s have (probably) spent lockdown honing their skills on the wheels of steel. Simultaneously mixing fancy cocktails behind the decks whilst scratching their latest vinyl purchase is now perfected to an art form.
Obviously, all events are subject to Government guidance and there may be some hoops to jump through (depending on the science/advice). You can rest assured that if this event can be allowed to happen the organisers will do all they can to make it run as smoothly as possible so get booking now…
