The first and the biggest action sports and music spectacular in Australia! After months of whispers and rumours, it's now official. The Megaramp is coming to Australia.

On the 31st of October, exclusive to Melbourne comes the massive inaugural extreme sports spectacular, MegaRampage, which will welcome the largest ramp the southern hemisphere has ever seen and some of the world's best skaters and BMX riders - the gladiators of the 2000's.

As if that wasn't enough, playing live are THE OFFSPRING, GOOD CHARLOTTE, THE WU TANG CLAN  and KELLEY JAMES who will be making their way from the US of A to bring in this colossal event alongside Australia's COG, MAMMAL and SHAMAN SON.

Etihad Stadium will barely be able to contain the absolute magnitude that is Megaramp, which takes four labour-intensive days to build; the treacherous ramp is over nine storeys high, nearly reaching the top of the stadium, and covers over 12 acres of ground.

The riders attempt ‘Big Air' where they go for amplitudes of over 20 to 30 feet in the air, over and above the height of the ramp. We are not talking about some dinky vert ramp - you do not want to fall from this monster! There are only 14 guys in the world who can skate the beast known as the Megaramp, and they will all be in Melbourne for MegaRampage.

World-famous pro-skaters confirmed for MegaRampage, in the insane pursuit of first prize include this year's winner of the first-ever Big Air Rail Jam at X Games in LA, America's Danny Way and second place winner, Brazil's Bob Burnquist. Braving the terrifying Megaramp again is Australia's true ironman, Jake Brown, who walked away from a 15m fall in 2007 and continues to conquer the mighty ramp! Also confirmed are Buster Halterman, Rob Lorifice, Andy Macdonald, Adam Taylor and Alex Perelson from the States, Lincoln Ueda and Vovo from Brazil and rumoured appearances from Ryan Sheckler (USA) and Jake Duncombe (AUS). Judging the event are American skate legends Christian Hosoi, Chris Miller, Steve Caballero, Lance Mountain and Rune Glifberg.

As for the BMX riders, confirmed are American champs Morgan Wade, Kevin Robinson, Anthony Napolitan, Allan Cooke, Dave Mirra and Chad Kagy, and reppin' Australia is Steve McCann, with judges to be decided in conjunction with Mat Hoffman.
