The Music 

The line-up is bursting with heavyweight music legends not to be missed such as American hip hop icons, Run DMC and De La Soul, Grime king Dizzee Rascal and the one and only Damian “Jr Gong” Marley. Flying the flag for up-and-coming British talent, Bugzy Malone, Stefflon Don, AJ Tracey, Jaykae and Flohio are just some of the diverse musical offering at NASS this year, along with drum and bass heroes Andy C, Sigma and Wilkson.

The Sport

NASS wouldn’t be the unique festival it is without the global BMX and Skaters brought together each year to battle it out for a top prize purse and title. This year will include new competition formats, new and improved courses alongside pop up jams and of course the ring of fire.
