So yesterday I got confirmation that I’ll have press access to NASS Festival 2011. I’ve been the past few years as a punter and it has never failed to disappoint. This year looks even crazier than before!
The festival has certainly upped its game in terms of music and sports. With Nero and Sub Focus- two of the biggest dubstep and drum and bass producers playing the main stage on the Friday night and then Tinie Tempah fronting the main stage on the Saturday night. With Millencolin, Cancer Bats and We are the Ocean playing the Kerrang Stage over the weekend there’s something to keep everyone partying long into the early hours of the morning!
However, my highlight of the weekend has got to be the absolutely nuts line up on the Drum and Bass Arena. You have the who’s who of drum and bass and dubstep on this stage across the weekend. Not many festivals can boast having acts the calibre of Dirty Phonics Live, DJ Fresh, DJ Hype, Breakage, Netsky, Loadstar, and Flux Pavilion all on one stage over two nights. Having witnessed this stage the past few years I’ve attended the atmosphere will definitely be absolutely electric in there!
If you’re going for the sports you are definitely not going to be disappointed. The World Cup of Street skateboarding competition will be rolling into town again for NASS with big names such as Mike Vallely, Rodolfo Ramos and Ben Grove all competing. The World Rolling Series which is inline skating’s international league will be at Relentless NASS for it’s 3rd year running and is bound to be another massive hit with riders such as Sam Tufnell, Nick Lomax and Chaz Sands in attendance.
However, year on year the festivals highlight is always the BMX park competition with riders putting their bodies on the line to win the cash prize. This year is not going to be any different with an increased prize purse and a brand new park. With riders such as Mark Webb, Harry Main and Ben Wallace all fighting for the top prize of £5,000 this year is going to be one of the best yet.
Other sports on offer are FMX, which this year has a brand new competition format, King of Dirt MTB Championship, slalom skating and many more.
I will be covering all aspects of the festival so keep an eye out for photos, ramblings and general goings on about the Relentless NASS Festival 2011. Photos will be published throughout the weekend so even if you’re not at the festival (and if so why the hell not?) you will be kept up to date with what is happening.
There’s so much more to this festival that I can’t fit into this release so if you want even more information on the festival then please visit www.relentlessnass.co.uk. The festival runs from 8th-10th July at Bath and West Showground.
