NASS Festival is one of the biggest and best action sports and music festivals in Europe – and we have tickets to the event to give away.


The festival is home to adrenaline-fuelled sports in the day and at night welcomes some of the biggest drum and bass artists from across the globe.

NASS – the National Adventure Sports Show – will be hosting the IBMXFF World Championships and welcoming along some of the world’s top BMX riders to compete.

Among those signed up to take part this year are legend of the sport Mat Hoffman, Australian superstar Logan Martin and X Games gold medallist Daniel Sandoval.

Flying the flag for Great Britain will be seven-time NASS pro park champion Mark Webb, alongside Daniel Dhers, Alex Coleborn, Simon Tabron, Coco Zurita and Brandon Loupos.

Some riders are flying thousands of miles to take part in the competition, including the United States’ trick specialist Daniel Sandoval, dirt specialist Pat Casey and freestyle pioneer Dennis McCoy. Poland’s freestyle expert Dawid Godziek and Swiss rider Fabien Giess add to the quality line-up.

This year’s skateboarders can enjoy competing on a 14ft-high vert ramp – one of the biggest ramps in Europe – which was tested out by arguably the most legendary skater of all time, Tony Hawk, last year.

One of the UK’s top vert skaters Sam Beckett is back this year along with Jimmy Wilkins, Andy Scott, Danny Leon and plenty more.

The main stage will be awash with big-hitters from the music world, including dance, rock and grime with grime poster boy Stormzy, British rapper and actress Little Simz, and indie-hip hop crossover star Rat Boy.

Stages will also be packed with acts producing chest-pounding tunes including Californian hip hop group Jurassic 5, drum and bass pioneer Andy C and Australian dance duo Knife Party.

NASS Festival will be at the Royal Bath and West Showground in Shepton Mallet from Friday at 10am to Monday at 2pm.

Weekend camping tickets, priced £119 for adults or £79 for concessions, or day tickets, priced £28-49, are available from
