The Wängl Tängl Returns

When: 10.-13. März 2010

Where: Mayerhofen, Penken Park

Think Zillertal, think sick park features, think legendary parties, think Ästhetiker. I guess you got it: The Wängl Tängl, the flagship of all Ästhetiker Jams, will return to Mayrhofen. For the eighth time action and entertainment will make Tyrol their home.  Center of all action will be the perfectly shaped Vans Penken Park with a unique Red Bull Endsection. Highlights are a contest where ‘young guns’ and ‘old dogs’ battle it out and a skateboard contest in a friendly ‘Gäme of Skäte’ format. The legendary Ästhetiker Parties are part of the program as always and special streetart performances define the Wängl Tängl 2010.

‘Young Guns’ and ‘Old Dogs’ Together in the Gäng Jäm

Talented rookies have the unique opportunity to ride alongside international pros like Stefan Gimpl or Joonas Mustonen and compare their skills with ‘old dogs’ like Steve Gruber or Beckna. Other big names include Wolle Nyvelt or Gigi Rüf, all of whom will battle it out with the ‘young guns’. Wild cards for the Gäng Jam are up for grabs at the Shred Down Austrian Masters. The best rookie slopestyle, the best rider slopestyle and the best overall rider will make up a team for the Wängl.

Streetart, Skating, Shaking

The Wängl Tängl is also about live art performances. The winter garden of the Scotland Yard Pub will be transformed into an art studio. And no Ästhetiker Jam would be complete without a Skate Jam. The ‘Gäme of Skate’ will be carried out i n a direct knockout-format. Famous skaters like Robert Klausner, Andreas Fugger, Reini Ritsch or Oliver Gordon have already announced to show their best ‘flatland tricks’. The area between the staircases of the ‘Penkenbahn’ in Mayrhofen seems pretty unusual for a skate area, but it is the perfect venue for a skate jam with a great arena feeling. Make sure you get a good spot to watch! And finally, the legendary Ästhetiker parties will make everyone’s arse shake. The nightly Ästhetiker party schedule will take care of “good party Äction”. Highlight is the final ceremony with the turntable show of the Waxolutionists.
