Skate at Liseberg is arranged by Tacky.se together with Liseberg, Comviq, Returpack and Junkyard and will become one of the most spoken about and largest skateevents in swedish history. The situation inside the Liseberg Amusement Park and in front of the main stage will enable us to create a place that is completely unique. 3 days packed full of skateboarding experience, rock and rollercoaster ride and 3 nights of partying wildly. This summer, the city of Gothenburg will get a real skateboard experience.

Apart from the big competition Liseberg Classics the days will be filled with other skaterelated activites together with the sponsors. You will be able to shop skatestuff, watch skatevideos and documentaries, take part of different competitions and giveaways, live music and much more.


Every evening will also be ended by a great party. First day WeSC arranges the opening party, then on Friday the local skateshop FRCTN hosts the party, and then on Saturday Rip Curl steps in for the big party!
