The action sports and music festival is coming to the Royal Bath and West Showground early next month
NASS Festival is stoked to announce another action-packed sports programme for 2017, with the welcome return of the iBMXFF BMX World Championships.
Hosting pro and amateur contests across Park, Vert, Flatland and Pro Dirt disciplines, this year’s World Championships promise to be even bigger and badder than last year’s. Athletes from across the globe will descend on NASS Festival from July 6th–9th for the chance to become a world champion, as well as for a slice of a combined $50,000 prize purse.
Skateboarding at NASS has never been in a better place, as this year the festival will also host one of Europe’s leading street contests in the world-famous NASS Park. With a prize purse of $12k up for grabs, the stakes have never been higher, so expect to see some of the best skaters around heading to NASS this year for a shot at glory.
The 2017 athletes have just been announced and the draw of the iBMXFF World Championships will bring with it the world’s top talent in BMX, as well as a host of talented amateur riders looking to push their skills to the max.
Richie Inskip, NASS Sports Manager, said: “Hosting the BMX World Championships even once is a privilege, so to have it at NASS two years in a row is insane. Last year’s event was the best we’ve ever had, the guys came and just tore up the park and the progression we saw was just ridiculous.”
Inspired by the individuality and creativity of alternative youth culture, 15,000 music and action sport fans will make their way to the Royal Bath & West Showground for a weekend of action sports, live music and hardcore revelry.
Hip-Hop royalty in the shape of Method Man and Redman have been announced to headline Friday night supported by rising grime star Giggs. They join grime legend Kano, Aussie drum'n'bass outfit Pendulum and DJ duo Sigma with many more musical acts still to be announced.
- Thursday 6th–Sunday 9th July 2017
