Simple Session 2022 kicks off in a week! Super excited to welcome everyone back in Tallinn on June 8-13, together with the best BMX athletes and skateboarders worldwide.

And not to mention street jams in the city center, legendary parties and many more. See the full program on our website simple.session.ee.
“We’re glad to be back at the Põhjala district that welcomes everyone with its cozy summer vibe. More intimate and closer to public venue proved itself well last year for both riders and audience, and we received great feedback, so we decided to continue with our third decade of Simple Session here,” says Risto Kalmre, the founder of Estonia’s biggest and world-renowned action sports event which takes place since 2000.
