NASS is the only festival in the UK that combines professional action sports and music. A four-day event showcases fierce competitions in skateboarding and BMX, as well as live music acts by big names in punk, rock, drum & bass, and dubstep. The festival attracts about 15,000 attendees.
The action takes place at the Royal Bath & West Showground in Shepton Mallet, UK. The site boasts a 4.2-m (14ft) vert ramp, the largest in Europe, and the cash prizes totaling $50,000. It draws both professional riders and best amateurs. The public can also try out a skate park and BMX dirt jumps to show off some skills. There will also be a lot of graffiti everywhere as the festival partners up with European street art festival Upfest and displays its art across ramps and walls.
