Music + Skate x 3 Days = Tony Hawk’s Weekend Jam 2022

The Tony Hawk Weekend Jam 2022 – which will be held May 12-15 in Las Vegas – is set to be an epic experience. Headliners include Modest Mouse, Devo, Descendants, and of course the Birdman himself, plus plenty of events to watch and participate in. But that’s not the half of it.

This event is described as “a three-day Las Vegas takeover, curated by Tony Hawk himself. Featuring skate competitions, the bands that defined skate culture, and the video games that made it all mainstream.”

There’s that, plus a Vert Alert exhibition, contests, shopping, food, a gaming lounge, movies, a street park setup, and a whole lot more at the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center. The package includes all that plus accommodation for the weekend and you can snag your tix right here.

No idea how the GOAT found time in his schedule to host a festival, do a documentary, run a charity, make NFTs, sell merch, appear in a music video, mangle his hands in an empty pool, and get continually confused for a celebrity lookalike while going about his daily business. It’s a lot.

The skater lineup so far is as follows:
