The UK’s biggest celebration of music, street art, skate and BMX, NASS festival is returning to the Bath & West Showground, near Bristol on Thursday 11 – Sunday 14 July 2019 headlined by Giggs, Rudimental and Cypress Hill. 30,000 fans will come together to witness the world’s best BMXers, skateboarders, street artists and fresh music talent alongside pioneers from an eclectic mix of subgenres including grime, hip hop, garage, drum & bass, dubstep and more, creating the most exciting street culture event in the festival calendar.
NASS is proud to present its biggest music line-up to date, with impressive headline acts including influential UK rapper Giggs, BRIT-award winning collective Rudimental and West Coast hip-hop icons Cypress Hill. Supporting them on the mainstage will be East London’s hottest new rapper Yxng Bane, South London wordsmith Loyle Carner and “one of the UK’s top independent producers”, Tom Misch. They are joined by hundreds of other carefully curated artists including Pendulum, Hannah Wants, SaSaSaS, Problem Central, DJ Hype & Hazard, IAMDDB, Grandmaster Flash, Becky Hill, Lady Leshurr, Akala, Maverick Sabre, Novelist, D Double E and Devlin. Those who are inspired by the incredible musical display can put their skills to test at one of NASS’ DJ workshops. From local crews to superstars, NASS celebrates the success stories of top musicians, whilst elevating the headliners of the future.
NASS brings together the world’s best skate and BMX athletes to compete in one of the biggest and most progressive contests in the country. Skaters and BMXers of all levels will have the chance to showcase or develop their skills, even if it’s their first time on a board or bike. Expect to see world class skating from Olympic hopefuls Alex Decunha, Alex Halford and Jordan Thackeray, all of whom will benefit from UK Sport’s Aspiration Fund award to help them qualify for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic games. NASS’ legendary Ring of Fire will be back by popular demand, not one to be missed, the world’s top skaters will be stomping tricks through the burning hoop.
Alongside music and action sports, street art is heavily ingrained in NASS’ DNA, festival goers can expect exclusive, site-wide live and curated street art from some of the best names in the game including Mr Penfold, Insane 51, Inkie, My Dog Sighs and more. Budding artists are encouraged to get involved in on-site art workshops where they can drink and draw in the Truck & Bearing Pub with international artists and top local talent. Following on from the success of last year, NASS have once again partnered with Bristol based Upfest, founders of Europe’s largest street art festival.
Giving back to the core communities that it celebrates is of paramount importance to NASS, be that enlisting pro athletes in the ramp building process or partnering with skate charity, SkatePal. This year NASS donated £5,000 to SkatePal to develop plans for a new skatepark in Palestine and expand their reach to empower more young people through skateboarding. As NASS grows, they plan to continue to support the great work that goes on by organisations dedicated to skate, BMX and street art, which sit at the core of the festival.
