Free entry from 6pm at the Civilist store.
The #ProjectDSS cash for tricks is a laid back pre-event jam, just a stone’s throw from the Shelter. Berlin’s most famous & newly updated former DIY spot is likely to get a working from the pros in town – from 6pm.
2016 also sees a return of the popular ‘Fox Track Race’, a head to head battle around a figure of 8 track with tight berms and whoops.
