Sideburn magazine, the world’s most suave motorcycle magazine, is organising and promoting a one-off, cross-genre event to go down in history.

Rollerburn is a festival of two-wheeled death traps and roller derby vixens. On Saturday 19 November 2011, at Newark Showground, Nottinghamshire, we will host nine hours of family entertainment incorporating a full roller derby match, followed by the world’s first (and probably last) Indoor Rollerball drag race: three lightning fast racers riding three motorcycles towing three fearless roller girls. One winner.

One of the confirmed racers is Guy Martin, arguably Britain’s favourite bike racer, Isle of Man TT hero, star of TT 3D – Closer to the Edge and the BBC primetime series – The Boat That Guy Built. His attendance guarantees a sell-out crowd.


In addition we have:

•Invite-only custom show of the finest custom bikes

•A live set from the UK’s premier garage ‘craperet’ act, The Stags

•A further two top bands

•Slalom skateboard demo

•Rollergirl sprint races

•Indoor flat track demo

•Top DJS including Sir Johnny Alpha

•Loads of vendor stalls

•Bar and food dealers

•Our favourite artists on display

•Launch of Sideburn 9
