Simple Session – 21 years of mad action!
Simple Session’s international activities introducing Tallinn and Estonia as an attractive tourism destination of action sports and culture are supported by The European Regional Development Fund (200 000 euros for three events 2020-2022).
Simple Session 21 will be back in Tallinn, Estonia, on August 20–21 with a big summertime festival and an all-around good time! The Simple Session series will host an exciting street-focused contest in the hip new Põhjala district – an old rubber factory turned into a cultural hub will serve as a thrilling new location for the event. Simple Session 21 will also be one of the first more significant international events after the big Olympic debut in Tokyo – so much extra hype around our sports.
Sixty-four of the finest invitation-only BMX street riders and skateboarders from around the world will go head to head on a new 600m2 Wessel-designed street course.
Skateboarding and BMX are all about creativity. So is Simple Session – hosting the series at the coolest and liveliest venue in Tallinn will take the entire contest experience to another level for athletes and viewers alike. We are coming closer to fans and back to the core of these sports as well to our roots. The global health crisis has created obstacles and prevented us from hosting the annual wintertime event. On the sunny side, it prompted us to regroup and innovate the series, and we are delighted with the result.
The event celebrates the Estonian Restoration of Independence on the 20th of August, kicking off a long weekend of the best riding and Simple Session antics on and off the course. We are incredibly excited to host riders in the stunning Estonian summer after most athletes have experienced Estonia only in the cold winter months. It’s been 12 years since Tallinn last hosted a Simple Session summertime edition – that’s about to change.
Simple Session 21 also features its (in)famous three-day party & after/hours program from Thursday to Saturday 19–21.08.
