SNOW - VWT Snowboard Crew Battle
 
From riders for riders! This is and always will be the main mantra of the Ästhetiker crew. In 2012
the largest gathering of shred crews ever will happen in the famous supersized Vans Penken
Park, customised and extended especially for the event with the infamous Red Bull Endsection
by the Mayrhofner Bergbahnen, based on the designs of Ästhetiker´s own Steve Gruber and
Wolle Nyvelt. For the jubilee the event opens up to more riders in an open qualification. Up to
thirty teams can join the game, vying to qualify for the three open spots in the main „Tängl Team
Contest“, where sixteen crews meet head-to-head in a knockout system with team judging
format. No crew will be eliminated in the first round and all teams get a second chance to go for
the 15.000 Euro total prize pool.
 
SKATE - VWT Skateboard Crew Battle
 
As the Wängl Tängl grew skateboard and snowboard followed their own path, but were still
linked strongly during the event by the competition formats, by the judging criteria and most
importantly by the same vibe among the athletes. Nowadays we could almost say that Wängl
Tängl is the only one event out there that is a celebration of skate and snow with equal respect
for both in their own essence.Twenty of Europe´s best transition rippers are invited to the 2012
edition, some of them are previous winners, and they know how to use the spot to optimize their
combos. Along with them, other crews can currently register online at www.wangltangl.com for
taking part in the open qualification, where the top six crews get a spot for the main crew battle,
in a sixteen crew head-to-head format. Prepare for the best skaters in Europe to come down to
the valley: Andy Scott, Josh Young, Phil Zwijsen, Ross McGouran, Jake Collins, Sam Partaix,
Alain Goikotxea and many more!
 
ART – Vans Looking Sideways Art Show
 
Vans Looking Sideways is a crew of artists rooted in boardsports. For this year´s art show at the
Europahaus they have invited 10 international artists to exhibite some of their work. Their art
could be a painting, board graphic, a sculpture or a photograph. All of it connects, somehow, to
those who ride. The exhibition features the work of some of the best board sports artists working
today, from legendary skaters and snowboarders, to people whose art alone does the talking.
The event guests will be able to look over the artist´s shoulders and follow the process of
creation.
 
MUSIC – Vans Wängl Tängl Lineup 2012
 
For the world´s greatest gathering of crews, clans and tribes a premium music lineup is set. On
Saturday, 17th of March the „Contestiväl“ kicks off with the FM4 Club at Brueck´n Stadl with DJ
Phekt, Flip & Average and the Austrian DJ legend DJ DSL. On Sunday, the Red Bull
