The alliance between skaters and speakerheads dates back to the first time someone attached wheels to a board, but Tony Hawk certainly strengthened the bond with the epic soundtracks to his Pro Skater video game franchise. Now, he’s found a new way to marry those cultures with Tony Hawk’s Weekend Jam, a music and skateboarding festival headlined by Modest Mouse, Descendents, and Devo.
Weekend Jam goes down March 12th to 15th at the Los Vegas Events Center. The Vert Alert skate exhibition includes Hawk himself as well as Andy Macdonald, Bucky Lasek, Christian Hosoi, Kevin Staab, Lizzie Armanto, Rune Glifberg, Sandro Dias, and Steve Caballero, while the music is rounded out by X, Cold Cave, The Vandals, Warish, Rough Francis, and The Downhill Jam.
Besides these performances, Weekend Jam will feature skate competitions, video games, food trucks and more. Packages include hotel accomodations and start at the eye-boggling price of $999. Ticketing information is not available yet, but will be updated through the event website.
