The O'Neil Shoreditch Showdown is a freestyle event that is being held in East London.
They will be dumping 50 tonnes of snow into Shoreditch and building an impressive rail course. With a selection of the UKs top freestyle riders being unleashed onto this insane set up, it is sure to raise the profile of UK street riding. This exclusive event will be taking place on Thursday 21st November.
Amongst the hustle and bustle of this East London hotspot the set up itself will depict a snowy London that will feature an original double-decker bus, telephone kiosk, red pillar post box and an array of rails, allowing each rider to be as creative as possible and paint a freestyle picture upon this urban canvas.
The exclusive event is VIPs only as well as ticket winners. You can not buy tickets for this event which only adds to the hunger of wanting to go. Not only will there be just freestyle skiing and snowboarding, but live DJ set alongside an on-site graffiti installation.

With the schedule firmly in place and added music acts, as well as the complete set of riders for the hail the rail comp, this is shaping up to be an amazing event.
The schedule is looking jam packed, especially the Saturday. This is the day it seems to kick up a notch, not only in terms of music acts, but this is the day the 'Hail the Rail jam' starts, and will definitly be the highlight. If you havent seen our previous post about the Hail The Rail Jam you should expect to see some amazing riders throwing down unbelievable tricks.
With regards to music acts, one to watch would definitley be 'The Cuban Brothers'. The NothinButSnow team are fans, as they always bring the party with their energetic performances and highly amusing dance moves. The boys have got skills. Also a name that was good to see on the list was MJ Cole. That name takes us back to our UK Garage youths listening to mixes from Dj Ez and Matt Jam Lamont. Had to stick on MJ Coles's 'Crazy Love' and 'Sincere', when we saw that name on the line up.
Here is the line up for the individual days.
