X Games organisers have announced the headliners of its upcoming California event, which will blend together action sports and a music festival experience.

The summer version of the X Games will take place in Ventura, California, while the winter edition took place in January in Aspen.

X Games Ventura 2024 will feature performances from artists such as Wiz Khalifa and Kaskade, with the event taking place from June 28-30 at Ventura County Fairgrounds. Wiz Khalifa and Kaskade will perform on the Friday and Saturday night, respectively, while the rest of the line-up will be announced in due course. A total of nine artists are expected to perform.

Last year, X Games brought the action sports event back to southern California, drawing more than 50,000 fans, and selling out tickets and merchandise. 

It is the first time that X Games tickets will include both music and sports events.

“Growing up in the suburbs of Chicago my favourite thing to do when I wasn’t crate digging for music was to go out and skate in the streets of the city,” said Kaskade.

“Half of the sport was seeing how long I could go without getting kicked out of my favourite spots. I never would have dreamed that snowboarding, BMX, skateboarding and all the other amazing sports that are celebrated within the X Games would be so amplified and that I would get to join in. It’s such an honour to be playing again, looking forward to seeing everyone there.”

X Games vice-president of live event Rich Bigge added: “This year’s music lineup is all about creating a vibrant festival experience for athletes and fans alike. We’ve curated a diverse mix of genres, from rock and hip-hop to electronic and beyond, with a few surprises in store. It’s guaranteed to keep the energy high for the entire three-day event, giving fans the biggest bang for their buck.”
