ESPN X Games

January 24
X Games Minneapolis

Coming back this August is the ESPN X Games, and boy am I excited. If you have never been, these games combine adrenaline pumping sports, high energy music and a fun festival experience into one. The tricks that these athletes perform are mind boggling and extremely fun for the entire family.


Events to check out:

  • Kick off the weekend with the Skateboard and BMX Vert competitions, held in the Armory on Thursday night. 

  • Don’t forget about the incredible music scene at the Armory over the 4 nights. Chevy Metal, Wu-Tang Clan, Diplo and The Blink Shake are some of the headliners this year, which means that no matter your taste, there will definitely be artists you’ll love.

  • There will be a free Moto X Step Up event outside of U.S. Bank Stadium on Thursday night. Check it out to see some of the talented Moto X athletes performing tricks to get you hyped for the weekend ahead.


There are so many different price ranges and packages for you to choose from at this event. Young kiddos ages 10 and under get discounted tickets, which is great for this family-friendly affair. Not to mention, BMX, Skate and Moto X fans can choose specific event-based packages for optimal experience. If you feel like going all-out, check out the XIP hospitality passes that include access to gourmet food, incredible views form the lounge seating and tickets to the music shows.  The Platinum tickets are another great option that get you access to lounge seating, drink vouchers and admission to concerts as well. Check out their site to see the many packages offered.
