The Relentless Freeze Festival will once again pitch up in the shadow of Battersea Power Station, London this coming weekend (October 26-27 2012) and give the diamond geezers of England’s capital the chance to witness some epic snow stunts before getting well and truly mashed bopping to one of the many music acts they’ve got lined up. Check more details…
Freeze takes on a new direction for 2012 with the creation of an Invitational Snowboard Event. Snowboarding at Freeze will now be open to any rider – allowing an unrestricted field to the UK’s only international snowboard event.
The full schedule for snowboarding is…
Relentless Energy Drink Freeze Festival Snowboarding Competitions include the Freeze Snowboarding International Big Air as well as the Whitelines Battle of Britain. Nowhere else in the UK will you witness this level of competitive snowboarding. Sure, we love to say we don’t care about comps, forget it, they all want to win this one!
Snowboarding at Freeze will now be in the shape of an international invitation only event. This results in no restriction on entries and because of this Freeze will invite only the biggest and best names in snowboarding from around the world for Freeze 2012, including Eiki Helgason, Gjermund Bråten, Jamie Nicholls and Ståle Sandbech – you can check the full rider list here. A new series of competitons have been launched for 2012: unrestrained by the regimentation of FIS regulations. Europe VS The World Rider cup and a new ‘Best Trick Wins’ Catergory.
2011 saw double corks as standard and with progression at, quite frankly, ridiculous levels its anyone’s guess as to what might be witnessed. Jani Korpi of Finland took the crown in 2011 followed by Seppe Smits from Belgium and Joris Ouwerkerk from the Netherlands. Come Saturday 27th October, who will be the Freeze Champion 2012?
The music lineup is looking just as awesome. Freeze 2012 will feature one of the most explosively genre-spanning sets since it’s inception. The likes of DJ Shadow, Mark Ronson and Zane Lowe prepare to etch their own unique brands of mash-up on the London skyline, whilst Public Enemy and Grandmaster Flash fine-tune their timeless crowd thumpers.
