Festival Crowd Header

As the UK’s biggest celebration of action sports, music and street art, NASS Festival have ramped up proceedings with some very special line up additions...

...including their 3rd headliner Damian ‘Jr Gong’ Marley, - who was revealed via a two-storey high mural in Bristol by local street artist Jody and curated by Upfest - De La Soul, Wilkinson, AJ Tracey, Fred V & Grafix plus many more for the 4 day weekender. They join already announced headliners, pioneers of grime and hip hop, Dizzee Rascal and RUN DMC who will shake the main stage alongside a diverse selection of musicians across seven stages as well as international skate and BMX competitions.

The legendary Damian ‘Jr Gong’ Marley has followed the footsteps of his iconic father Bob Marley with an incredible career consisting of a Grammy-award winning debut album, a string of chart topping records, plus multiple high-profile collaborations. He’ll be joined by the “Me Myself and I” jazz infused hip hop trio De La Soul, who’ll be throwing down a slew of fresh and old skool hits. After a critically acclaimed second album, NASS are excited to welcome English D&B producer Wilkinson to the Bath & West Showground, expect an electrifying DJ set from the fast rising star.

Accompanying them will be a whole host of new acts announced for Phase Two, including bubbling Grime talent, AJ Tracey, plus live Hospital Records drum and bass duo Fred V & Grafix, energetic band Gentleman’s Dub Club and one of the most respected pioneers of Jungle music Congo Natty.

Away from the main stage, jump-up supergroup Kings Of The Rollers, Grime’s newest sensation Izzie Gibbs & BBC Radio 1Xtra tastemaker Jamz Supernova will keep up momentum, with celebrations sure to continue long after the bikes and boards have been put down, with music going on until around 3am.

Some 20,000 music and extreme sports fans will gather at the Bath & West Showground, near Bristol, to watch the world’s top BMXers and skateboarders show off their skills, and enjoy an eclectic array of live music performances across the fields of hip hop, drum & bass, grime and many more. With their full street artist line-up and athletes yet to be announced, NASS 2018 is shaping up to be an unmissable date in the festival calendar.
