Not just content with the biggest main stage to date, NASS has six music and performance areas that will be buzzing throughout the weekend.

  • Main Stage

    Expect epic performances from the biggest names. On Friday we’ll be piling in for Charlie Sloth at 17.30 and heading to the front for Method Man & Redman as darkness falls. Saturday it’s all about Pendulum, Sigma and Krept & Konan, whilst on Sunday we can’t wait for Kano and Wiley.

  • South Bank

    If you’re ready to party through the night South Bank is the place to do it. Think DJ Hype, Crisis, Mollie Collins, Drumsound & Bassline Smith…the line-up is immense!

  • The Warehouse

    The original warehouse rave arena. Time for drum & bass and garage legends to collide in all their glory.

  • The Hangar

    One warehouse just wasn’t enough so NASS have introduced The Hangar—showcasing the cream of Bristol, including the likes of Slimzee, Rude Kid, Crissy Criss & Friends.

  • Sika Studios

    Step away from the Parks, Tracks and Verts for a moment and enter the Bristolian heart of NASS. This will be the biggest SIKA set up yet with masses of performers from the best collective. The battle is on.

  • Truck & Bearing

    It’s not all about massive music stages, the Truck & Bearing is NASS’s very own pub, where you can kick back with a beer whilst still listening to a storming line-up.

    The biggest athletes in the skate world, competing in one of the most progressive contests with $22,000 in prizes up for grabs. Pro Park will see top names pushed to the limit on a terrain designed by Four One Four Skatepark, whilst the very best vert ramp in Europe will surely mean an epic contest is guaranteed.

    The glory’s not just saved for the pros with the NASS Park Skate Am, Vert Am and Women’s Park Skate Open packing a powerful punch. Winners of the Am Finals get the chance to battle it out with the pros—so this is the place to get noticed!

  • BMX

    NASS scored a major coup in 2016, hosting the iBMXff BMX World Championships as it came back to the UK for the first time in nearly 30 years. This year they’ve nailed it again, as the contest returns for a second run. Watch professional and amateur comps across Park, Vert, Flatland and Dirt as athletes from around the world fight it out to become a world champion.

    Freestyle Mountain Bike

    The Dirt War Series comes to NASS for a bronze round of the World Series. This means the chance to watch a mind-blowing display of double backflips, front flips, backflip tail whips, double tailwhips and more. If you’re here on Friday then the open jam practice session is immense as the guys get their tricks dialled in for the competitions to come. Saturday the battle proper starts, and Sunday is finals day where the 2017 NASS Festival Dirt Crown will be won.

    Street Art

    NASS is fast establishing itself as a serious player in the urban art scene –thanks partly to their collaboration with Upfest in 2016 (creators of the largest street art festival in Europe.) This year expect to be wowed by work from the likes of Andy Council, Captain Kris, Lilly Lou, Voyder and many more.

    White Knuckle Rides

    Want a part of the action? Head to the fairground after dark for a serious adrenalin buzz!
