Simple Session goes back to its urban roots on August 20-21 in Tallinn, Estonia

Simple Session 21 will be back in Tallinn, Estonia, on August 20–21 with a big summertime festival and an all-around good time. This years’ event will be more exclusive as the tickets are limited and the venue will be more intimate and closer to the public than ever – the Simple Session series will host an exciting street contest in the hip up and coming Põhjala district – an old rubber factory turned into a cultural hub.

Simple Session 21 will also be one of the first significant international events after the big Olympic debut for BMX and skateboarding in Tokyo. Sixty-four of the finest invited BMX street riders and skateboarders from all around the world will go head to head on a new 600m2 Nate Wessel-designed street course.

“I’m delighted that we can run the event at the youthful and vibrant Põhjala factory, make the Session during Estonian summertime and the riders and viewers will enjoy these sports as they were born. The global health crisis has prevented us from hosting the annual wintertime event, so we are happy now to host the Simple Session during the sunny side of the year,” says Risto Kalmre, the founder of Estonia’s biggest and world-renowned action sports event.

The event kicks off on the day of the Estonian Restoration of Independence on the 20th of August, starting a long weekend with the best riders and Simple Session antics on and off the course. Simple Session 21 also features their famous three-day party and after-hours program from Thursday to Saturday at the event weekend. While skateboarding and BMX contest sessions with only a limited number of tickets available will be held indoors, a lively outdoors yard with mini-ramp events together with the kendama-shows, partners’ pop-ups, food trucks, and happenings attracts visitors free of charge.
