Urban sports event
Antwerp City Drops, 10 pinpoints across the port city where you can discover the top of the bill of the urban scene. On 24 and 25 September, urban sports, lifestyles and cultures from around the world will gather in Antwerp.
The various drops
Together with the 2013 European Capital of Sports, Fast Forward has developed an exciting trail, with skaters, slackliners, street artists, freerunners, BMX riders and breakdancers.
And what’s more, there are plenty of fun markets with foodtrucks, crafts and delicious regional products to discover. You can also enjoy some of the best street art for free. DJs will treat your ears to some smooth urban beats.
What’s more, you too can join in the fun at many of the drops. Four pop-up venues brimming with fun activities. Are you a bit of a Red Devil? Or why not unleash the Michael Jordan in you? Are you up for something different? Go crazy and try some freerunning or learn some cool rope skipping tricks.
The cherry on the cake? Six professional athletes will be demonstrating their amazing skills in six venues. During the European skateboarding comp, an international jury will divide 10,000 euros of cash prizes among the best competitors. The participants in the European BMX Dirt and Skate Bowl comps are competing for prizes of 5,000 and 3,000 euros respectively.
We have some great news for those who can’t wait for this event when they hear about all these activities. You have the whole summer holiday to prepare for this urban festival, which will take place during the last weekend of September.
