Who’s up for some action sports this Summer? There is nothing like watching professional athletes perform dangerous and daring stunts right before your eyes. Satisfy your craving for extreme action sports at this year’s ESPN X Games! The X Games will be back in Los Angeles from August 1-4, 2013. The sports will be held at three different venues this year: Staples Center, L.A. Live, and the Irwindale Event Center. If you will be at one of the places to stay around Hollywood this August, you will be in the perfect location to attend the X Games!
This year’s X Games are sure to be one of the best. After wrapping up a great show in Munich, Germany at the end of June, the next and final stop for the 2013 Summer X Games will be Los Angeles, California. This will also be the final year that Los Angeles will be a host city for the Summer X Games, so those who attend regularly or those who have never been before should not miss their chance to catch the action! All four days will be jam packed with plenty of action sports and even live musical performances. On Thursday August 1, AWOLNATION will perform at the Irwindale Event Center from 8-9pm. Madeon will perform next from 9:30-10:30pm. On Friday August 2, Pepper will perform at the Irwindale Event Center from 7:30-9pm. The Presets, Tanlines, Robert DeLong, and FMLYBND will perform at Club Nokia at L.A. LIVE from 8:30 pm until 2am.
The X Games hosts four sports including skateboarding, Moto X, BMX, and Rallycross. All events are judged with the top three athletes in each event receiving a gold, silver, or bronze medal. Winning a medal at the X Games is a huge honor, especially due to the fact that these sports are not part of the Olympics. The three venues will hold separate sporting events. Staples Center will host all things Moto X including Moto X Speed & Style, Step Up, Best Whip, Freestyle, and Racing & Enduro. At the L.A. Live Event Deck, you will find Street League Skateboarding, Skateboard Vert, and BMX Street. The Irwindale Event Center will host America’s Navy Skateboard Big Air, GoPro BMX Big Air, and Ford RallyCross.
