And so with this in mind, The Hives have been confirmed as the headlining act. After a long three-year wait for their fans, their hit record “Tyrannosaurus Hives” is been followed by a new album and an exclusive perfomance at the T-Mobile Extreme Playgrounds. As the opening act we are glad to confirm the German band Die Ohrbooten and their mix of reggae, hiphop, rock and pop tunes.
The Summer Session, the second T-Mobile Extreme Playgrounds event, takes place on the 25 – 26 August at the Wakeboard-Arena in Hamburg/Pinneberg. After the qualifying sessions on the Saturday, the top BMX and wakeboard riders will come together to compete against one another on the Sunday.
BMX riders Tobias Wicke, Ben Hennon, Mark Webb, Ben Wallace, Dave Freimuth, Clint Millar, Senad Grosic, Mark Konig, Barry Kohne, Mike Spinner and Dave Osato, as well as wakeboard rider Bernhard Hinterberger, Sam Collins and Tom Foshee have already been confirmed as among the ten international competitors that will battle it out for the $12,500 prize money on offer.
