A Vert Jam at the When We Were Young Music Festival!
Coming October 21 - 22, X Games will host a star-studded Vert Jam at the festival grounds of When We Were Young, the sold out pop-punk music festival in Las Vegas, NV. The X Games Vert Jam will feature daily skateboard Vert demos, where fans can watch the world’s best skaters ride between musical performances.
With skate and music culture being intertwined since the beginning, many When We Were Young performers have a long history with X Games – including headliners Green Day and blink-182 who both recently performed at X Games events. Some skaters confirmed to attend include 10-year old superstar Reese Nelson, 20-time X Games medalist Bucky Lasek, seven-time X Games Vert gold medalist Jimmy Wilkins and more.
Athletes confirmed: Jimmy Wilkins, Bucky Lasek, Reese Nelson, Tate Carew, Paul-Luc Ronchetti, Ruby Lilley, Sandro Dias and Shea Donovan.
Demos on Saturday at 1:30pm and 5:00pm PST, and again on Sunday at 1:30pm PST. If you're at the festival, join us at the Vert ramp on the middle right on the map below. If you're online, follow along throughout the weekend on X Games Instagram and other social platforms for select highlights from all the demos!
