For the past four years at X Games Los Angeles, event sponsor Ford Motor Company has partnered with art collective & Creative Division of So-Gnar to create an authentic on-site cultural experience for action-sports fans. We've built, from the ground up, combination sport/music spaces that include custom mini-ramps and feature top DJs and live bands. When thinking about how we could replicate our activation on southern soil, we decided to replicate the blueprint with some minor tweaks and add a fresh new roster of skateboarders, bmx bikers, musicians and live artist's creating/painting FREE custom skatedecks into the mix. Now that the summer X Games series has expanded it's festival format to more music and festival vibe format.
