Shaun White could have some new hardware to show off when the 2018 edition of his Air + Style festival kicks off on March 3 at Exposition Park at the Los Angeles Coliseum. The two-time Winter Olympic gold medalist and snowboard legend revealed the star-packed 20-band lineup for the fourth annual two-day (March 3-4) Air + Style gathering on Tuesday morning (Jan. 9), which will include sets from headliners Zedd, Phoenix and Gucci Mane, as well as Cashmere Cat, Cut Copy, DRAM, GRiZ, Mura Masa, Phantogram, Tinashe, Washed Out, Badbadnotgood and more acts to be announced soon.
The hybrid music festival/snowboard competition will add skateboarding to the program for the first time this year, with a new, fast-paced course that will feature some of the world’s best skateboarders hitting a transition-based concrete skatepark based on some of the country’s most beloved DIY parks. The snowboarding event will be offered in collaboration with Big Bear Mountain Resort and feature showcases of the world’s best snowboarders hitting a snow-covered urban street scene in place of last year’s big air jump.
The Swatch Best Trick contest for both sports will feature live performances during the competitions. “I can’t wait to come home from the energy of the Olympics to Air + Style Los Angeles,” White said in a statement. “The festival is a combination of all my passions sport, music and culture and the fact it happens in my home state of California and in Downtown LA, makes it even more special.” Among the professional skateboarders on tap are Pedro Barros, CJ Collins and Cory Juneau, as well as pro snowboarders Zak Hale, Louif Paradis and Anto Chamberlin.
