Last year, X Games returned to its birthplace of Southern California after a 10-year hiatus to sold-out crowds and more energy than you can get from a Monster.

Lucky for SoCal thrill seekers, the adrenaline-fueled weekend is back this June 28 – 30 in Ventura for its signature blend of counter-culture’s favorite sports, bands and experiences. This year, Kaskade and Wiz Khalifa join the party bringing music back to the event for the first-time post-pandemic. And you don’t even need to pay extra for that!

Entering the Fairgrounds, you can feel the energy with athletes whizzing past on skateboard and BMX bikes, the distant brap of dirt bikes warming up in the pits and the familiar voice of longtime X Games host Selema Masekela getting fans hyped for the day’s events.

The mixture of different sports, onsite activities, personalities and viewing options make X Games truly for everyone. Whether you want to sip Pacificos with friends in the sunshine on the VIP deck, or take your kids to watch their favorite skateboarder rip and then try their hand at the interactive course or just wander around getting free stuff and listen to Kaskade – X Games is for you.

X Games elevates the in-person sports experience, where the unscripted drama gets dialed up to eleven as athletes push the boundaries of physics and their bodies. The thrilling sight of watching a dirt bike soar nearly 60 feet in the air is like nothing you’ll experience anywhere else. And you can feel old and unaccomplished all at the same time as you watch 11-year old Reese Nelson land tricks it took even Tony Hawk years to learn!

Elevating the experience this year, fans can not only mingle with their favorite pros – who always have time to stop for selfies and autographs – but can also session the pro courses.
