A third headliner is yet to be announced.

There will be a total of seven stages next year, as well as, international skate and BMX competitions across park, vert and dirt disciplines set to a backdrop of street art.

The NASS main stage will see grime superstar Dizzee make his NASS debut, fresh off the success of his recent album 'Raskit', alongside the legendary New York act.
