“The most extreme day in your life”. As the slogan said, The Yeah Festival was exactly that, extreme. For the first time in Brazil was possible to see Music, Skateboard and Freestyle Motocross, all together, at the same place, at the same time. The event took place at José Correa Arena, in city of Barueri. The Yeah Festival made a dream come true. During a very long time Brazilians had been waiting for that union between Music and Action Sports. They finally got it!
