Everything happening Freestyle...

Double The Trouble, Twice The Fun

Freestyle Magazine meets Freestyle.Berlin

So the weekend has been and gone, but what a fab one it was! Especially for those of us lucky enough to be at the very first ever Freestyle.Berlin! The 3-day event at Tempelhof airport was a huge success, with an amazing backdrop of the historic airport and over 13,000 visitors and multi-national professionals competing for titles in Freeskiing, Skateboarding and Snow boarding (not forgetting the prize fund of $79,000!!).

The atmosphere was amazing and even the less than perfect weather on Saturday night couldn't dampen everyone’s spirits!

Hundreds of pop-up shops were open throughout the weekend to entertain and cater for your every need, we tried our hand at shooting games, LED light walls and even had a try at slacklining with the brilliant guys from Gibbon Slacklines. There was also a wide selection of food on offer, ranging from traditional German Würstchen to amazing gourmet-style Burgers from White Trash Fast Food, who are definitely not your average burger joint.

After all the excitement of the daytime, believe it or not there was more to come! To finish off  the sporting events we had a breath-taking Freestyle Moto-cross display before Electro-punk outfit Warren Suicide kicked the party off on Friday night with a concert from the roof of the Red Bull tourbus! Throughout the weekend there were also concerts from Twin Atlantic, Dan Dryers and the amazing one-man accapella, electro AND acoustic performer Ricoloop who was fantastic. If that wasn't enough, there were still more parties to come with brilliant DJs Urban Knights, Wax Wreckaz DJ Crew, DJs Fra Diavolo and last but not least DJs Drifter & Mortensen playing tunes so we could all dance our socks off until 4am!
