Got your eye on the 2020 Olympics? See if you’ve got what it takes at the top end’s annual street heat skate competition.

Not only is the comp great prep for the Olympics, it’s also an action-packed day with spray paint workshops, food vans and, for the first time, live music.

Music programmer Ryan Gosper, 18, says there will be a chilled out vibe with some talented local live acts – including himself – as the soundtrack for the skaters.

“I would describe the music as like Boho fashion but in a music format,” 
he says.

“The way that fashion looks is how the music of Kyle Maher and Casey Jane sounds. Chilled out and comfortable, that’s the vibe we’re going for.”

City of Darwin skate development officer Hannah Illingworth says Street  Heat is open to skaters of all skills and styles and worth getting involved just for fun.

“We’ll have our pre-heat jam on Friday night at Leanyer and Saturday is  our big competition for all divisions – scooter, BMX, quad and skateboard.” 

Illingworth says the skate community in Darwin is supportive all year round and encourages everyone to head down and get involved.

“Skating attracts people who are individual, unique characters and people want to support each other do their own things – it’s a really nice space,”  she says.
