Vans Warped Tour 2012
The legendary Vans Warped Tour will be making its first stop in the UK in 13 years this November.
Last seen in the UK at Reading and Leeds festivals in 1999, Vans Warped UK 2012 will see over 10,000 music lovers descend on North London's Alexandra Palace on Saturday November 10th.
The first of the Vans skate and BMX team riders taking part in the demo will be Steve Caballero and Dennis McCoy. This demo is in addition to the Vans UKSA National Vert Skate Championships taking place at the Warped show. With a prize purse of £15,000 up for grabs, the contest will feature the biggest names in the UK vert scene. Expect to see living legends including Sean Goff and Andy Scott alongside current heavy hitters and X-Game medalists Sam Beckett and Sam Bosworth, with the next generation snapping at their heels, including Matty Carlisle, who has already made the 720 his signature trick. Witness a huge array of styles and trick variety from the competitors who range in age from 14 up to 47!
This is sure to be a great show, the competition will take the form of jams held between band performances with each one lasting around 20 minutes. This format emulates the more natural 'session' style of skateboarding with each skater pushing the others and encouraging the best performances from everyone involved. Ex-RAD TV presenter and pro skateboarder Marc Churchill will MC alongside veteran kingpin of the UK Vert scene Steve 'Wingy' Wilkinson, so be prepared to laugh, cry and be very entertained!
