For four days and three nights, X Games landed on Circuit of The Americas like an adrenaline soaked blanket. Fast action, crazy tricks and unbelievable music filled the early June air with energy and fun.
If you couldn’t make it this year, here are our favorite moments in photos from X Games Austin 2015.
While practices ran at Circuit of The Americas (COTA) all day, the weekend’s fun kicked off in grand style Thursday evening. Moto X Step Up was featured downtown, in front of the Capitol on 11th and South Congress. Fans gathered, noshed at food trucks and watched a small sample of the competition to come.
With the introductions out of the way, X Games kicked off Friday with a full slate of awesome events. Those who started the weekend early got treated to BMX Vert, Skateboard Vert and the first set of events at Big Air.
While Nicki Minaj closed out the day musically, local fans were treated with a wide variety of ATX acts like A Giant Dog and Bright Light Social Hour.
The middle of the weekend brought the biggest acts, the craziest events and the largest crowds. Skateboarding took center stage with Vert, Park and Street events while acts like Residual Kid, The Digital Wild and Talib Kweli entertained those brave enough to weather the brutal heat. The night culminated with an epic performance by Metallica on the Super Stage.
After the adrenaline fueled madness of Saturday, Sunday was the cool down. Off Road Truck racing was the main draw as Moto X Best Whip closed out the weekend’s events. Musically, ATX’ers like The Happen Ins and A. Sinclair closed the festival in style. A fantastic end to a wicked weekend.
