If you haven't heard that the X Games will be in Austin for the first time this year, then you've probably been living under a rock. That being said, you may not have heard yet that the action sports competition now has a full-blown music festival component.
And we're not talking small fish either. This year's showcase will feature some huge names like Kanye West (hah!), Flaming Lips, Pretty Lights, Gary Clark Jr. and many more. But, really, what else would you expect considering someone needs to draw enough people to fill the venue - Circuit of the Americas.
Of course, there will be more than 200 athletes competeing in events like Skate Big Air and Street contests, BMX Dirt and Park, and a ton of Moto and Truck events. Fans can also enjoy autograph sessions from their favorite athletes, food from some Austin favorites, and something that the X Games people are dubbing "interactive villages" we can only hope are as cool as they sound.
Tickets go on sale this Friday, so don't miss your chance to save your spot in the inagural Austin X Games. There will also be a pre-sale starting at 8AM if you use the code "XGACOTA" on the Ticketmaster website. For more info on the full lineup and how you can purchase passes, you can visit their website.
