What is AK EXTREME
AK Extreme is a four day festival with events scheduled at Mt. Hlíðarfjall and in downtown Akureyri.
For the main event we construct a terrifying Big Jump set up out fifteen shipping containers from Eimskip, smack dab in the middle of town.
This winter, alongside the traditional BURN Jib Session in downtown Akureyri, WE HAVE THE ORIGO Downhill Competition at Mt. Hlíðarfjall ON THURSDAY.
Last year’s edition saw over 7000+ spectators turn out to enjoy the sketchy huck-fest that is the Eimskip Big Jump competition in the center of Akureyri.
THE EIMSKIP BIG JUMP
The main event is the Eimskip Container Big Jump in downtown Akureyri. The event is scheduled for Saturday night and broadcast on national television. Foreign enthusiasts can also enjoy it through the internet . The event is strictly invite, with only top riders with the required guts to handle the extreme sketchiness of the drop-in participating.
The competition is broadcast live on-site on a Jumbotron, where spectators can enjoy recaps and other related material.
The origo Downhill
at Mt. Hlíðarfjall
Almost like a Chinese Downhill, the competitors start at the top of the mountain and race for the bottom, the difference being numbered poles stuck randomly in the slope on the way down. Those who manage to snag one of these poles enter a lottery draw with 5 prizes drawn, no matter if they finish first or last. As an added feature, contestants are required to carry an open can of the BURN Energy Drink with them, where the amount of spillage is measured for added time.
The race will be followed by an on-hill barbecue party with a DJ, before people depart for more excitement downtown.
VENUE DOWNTOWN AKUREYRI
Downtown Akureyri will see a local venue play host to three consecutive nights of concerts by many of the most acclaimed Icelandic artists in genres ranging from electro, punk and metal, with the occasional DJ playing a set as well. on thursday it's græni hatturinn and friday and saturday sjallinn.
