BMX Dirt Course – Nass Festival 2016


Event / Project background:

Vision Nine, event organisers of NASS Action Sports and Music Festival, were looking to step up the course at this year’s festival and contacted Gorilla to deliver the project. We formed a partnership with Kye Forte, for the 3rd year running, whom we had worked with previously on Red Bull’s Empire of Dirt event, and together successfully pitched and produced all aspects of the NASS BMX Dirt Arena.
