Being given the strong frequentation of last year (approximately 10 000 people), in particular during the 5 days of competition, one wonders whether the 1500 square meters of the gymnasium will be sufficient for this next edition!

Skate park will be open throughout all festival. The schedules of opening are still widened: more than 15 days of use during the holidays of All Saints’ day! – 3 days of workshops for the school ones from the 20 to October 22, 2003: of 14h with 18h in skate and bmx – 3 days of workshop from the 23 to October 24, 2003of 14h with 16h initiation in skate and bmxof 16h with 18h and more… improvement and free session skate and bmx- 5 days of workshops from the 27 to October 31, 2003: of 10h with 11h roller initiation of 11h with 13h improvement and free session roller of 14h with 16h initiation in skate and bmxof 16h with 18h and more… improvement and free session skate and bmx – 6 days of competitions: – open of Roller October 18, and 19 2003- open of skate October 25, and 26 2003 – open of bmx November the 1, and 2 2003 Demonstrations of “stars” main roads and international are in negotiation.

Concerts will take place on the 2 WE of the festival with group of notoriety (still to define, but tracks are considered with one evening Hardware-Core on Oct. 25 and an evening hip-hop the 1 er Nov., which will also make it possible to discover a selection of local groups in first part). The programming is not buckled to date, but it will be eclectic (hip-hop, Battle of dance hip-hop, Reggae, Electro, Drum and Bass, Funk, skatecore…).

The whole will be decorated with the organization of a battle with the best groups of the hexagon on October 19. We will also find the bus of the Rock’n’roll School Barbey for repetitions and even of the numerical recordings for the most justified groups!

In the same spirit, by combining workshops and performances, we wish to in general propose this year of the more open workshops on the visual arts (video, photographs, drawing, painting…).
