Danny Kass and The Dingo to host Snowboard on the Block in Denver, CO

Just when it seemed Snowboard on the Block 2014 couldn’t get any better, the festival has added two of the most entertaining voices in snowboarding. Event organizers for the 2014 North American Snowboard Film Festival are proud to announce Danny Kass and “The Dingo” will be Masters of Ceremonies for this year’s festival, taking place Saturday, September 13, 2014 in Downtown Denver. After all, what would the biggest snowboard season kickoff party in the country be without a pair of rowdy MC’s?


“These guys never fail to start the party,” stated Adam Schmidt, founder of the festival. “We’ve got a great duo to preside over Snowboard on the Block 2014.”

Danny Kass, a five-time US Open champion, seven-time X Games medalist, two-time Olympic silver medalist, and CEO of Grenade Gloves is one of the most recognizable faces in snowboarding. Alongside Danny will be his partner in crime “The Dingo”, who is best known as snowboarding’s unofficial master of ceremonies and co-star of Fuel TV’s hit show “The Adventures of Danny and The Dingo”. If the TV series is any indication, attendees of Snowboard on the Block 2014 are in for a wild party with these two behind the mic.

“This festival is an annual tradition that brings the snowboard community together to get excited for the coming year. This fall, we’re taking it to a whole new level with a more diverse music lineup, the largest HD video screens in the country, and the most wild MC’s in snowboarding,” said Schmidt.

  • Musical performances across three stages: MisfitsMobb Deep, Total Chaos, Expire, The Reminders, Speedwolf, MF Ruckus, Victory Heights, Pitch Invasion, Whygee, DJ MFM, King Rat, Unreasonable Human, Plan-B Rejects, Pizza Time, and more to be announced throughout the summer.
