NASS, the action sport and music festival will return on the 8th – 10th July, near Bristol.
Inspired by the individuality and creativity of alternative youth culture, 15,000 music & action sport fans will make their way to the Bath & West Showground for a weekend of action sports, live music and hardcore revelry.
American alternative hip hop group, Jurassic 5 will headline the main stage in 2016 joining headliners drum ‘n’ bass champion, Andy C, one of the fore fathers of the genre and Australian electronic dance music duo, Knife Party. Live street artists have also been invited to paint across the festival, completing that awe-inspiring banging atmosphere.
The IBMXFF World Championships will be held in the UK for the first time in 28 years with the world’s leading freestyle BMX athletes descending on the West Country in time for NASS. 450 professional and amateur riders from over 40 countries will compete in BMX freestyle; park, vert and dirt including BMX legend, Mat Hoffman, Australian superstar and three times NASS winner, Logan Martin and X Games 2015 Gold Medallist, Daniel Sandoval.
As well as the BMX worlds, top pro skateboarders will compete over the weekend for their share of a prize purse totalling over $50,000 (the largest BMX and skate prize purse in the UK). The event will feature a 14ft Vert Ramp, a pro park, dirt jumps, street spots, public courses and ramps.
Mat Hoffman, chairman of the IBMXFF and BMX legend, said: “It’s been almost 28 years but our ‘Worlds’ are returning to English soil with a bang. I was there in 1988 and I’ll be there again, high-fiving the progression and rocking the love! We are going to see the best riding, inspired by the best music. This is THE Event to plan your year around. See you there!”
