Fun Fun Fun Fest isn’t all about music, sports fans.

The skateboarding and BMX components of the festival, a laid-back mashup that celebrates indie, hip-hop, punk, electronic and metal music as well as comedy, have grown into big draws too. (Last year organizers built their own vert ramp and street course!)This year’s Skate + Ride lineup includes Grant Taylor, Dustin Dollin, Dennis Busenitz, Collin Provost, David Gonzalez, Alex Majerus, Dane Burman, Louie Lopez and Kyle Walker. They’ll perform in demos and competitions throughout festival weekend, Nov. 7-9.The festival has partnered with Volcom, who is working with local non-profit LOOP to build this year’s skate ramp and ride course. Meet-and-greets with the athletes also are planned.

The FFF Fest 2014 music and comedy lineup includes headliners Judas Priest, Neutral Milk Hotel, Modest Mouse, Nas, King Diamond, Wiz Khalifa, Fred Armisen, Alt-J, Death From Above 1979, John Waters and Girl Talk.
