CONVERSE ULT.X RETURNS TO CAPE TOWN IN 2024

Unleashing International Action Sports Thrills at V & A Waterfront’s Battery Park on March 1-2

Following its epic comeback to Cape Town in 2023, Converse ULT.X, the country’s premier Action Sports event, is set to once again blaze a trail at the V & A Waterfront’s Battery Park. Mark your calendars for March 1-2, 2024, as this adrenaline-fueled extravaganza promises to showcase the best of local and international park BMX and skateboarding talent.

Established in Cape Town in 2008, Converse ULT.X has consistently attracted the world’s top action sports athletes to South Africa. Beyond competition, it offers a unique opportunity for participating athletes to immerse themselves in the local action sports scene and savour everything the country has to offer.

Event Director Markus Müseler, reflecting on the return to Cape Town after an extended stint at Sun City, shares: “It’s been amazing to be back in the Mother City where it all started for us – 2023 edition showed our team there is a massive pull for quality Action Sport within Cape Town saying that – everyone was stoked with the festival & move from the African bush to the inner streets.”

Attendees will be immersed in fierce competition and the explosive vibe of action sports culture. “In the 2024 edition, one can expect even bigger listed athletes, a huge arena BMX park & skate plaza with our brand partner’s experiences, finished off into the music element with a major act.”

In the 2023 edition, South Africans Boipelo Awuah and Devandre Gallant claimed victory in the Women’s and Men’s Skate competitions, captivating a sold-out crowd. The BMX competition witnessed an all-international podium, with Anthony Jeanjean (FRA), Daniel Sandoval (USA), and Mike Varga (CAN) showcasing their prowess.

As the countdown begins for Converse ULT.X in March 2024, expect nothing less than an awe-inspiring display of talent and skill. Tickets, usually priced at R250, are available at an early bird price of only R200 (limited to 100 tickets) from 11-31 December 2023 at www.ultx.africa.  

Join us for a two-day spectacle that transcends the boundaries of action sports, uniting enthusiasts, athletes, and thrill-seekers in the heart of Cape Town.
