The last day of the festival was all about Skateboarding: Even though the weather could have been better, the Skateworkshop of Albertross & Friends was a full success! And Munich’s got 20 skaters more to be proud of.


But not only the kids had fun on Saturday. Some of the best skaters from Munich and around came to inaugurate the new skateobstacle made of concrete.


After two years focusing on the skateboarding scene in Munich, the discussion about the need of a D.I.Y-Fullpipe park in Munich gave a new understanding of that topic. While the Skateboarding scene represented by Daniel Haas, Roman Astleitner and Stefan Lehnert argued that Skateboarding always was about do it yourself, the representatives of the city of Munich (Willi Wermelt, SPD, Verena Dietl, SPD, Wolfgang Zeilnhofer-Rath, Hut and Oswald Utz, GrĂ¼ne) pointed out that there would be administrative problems regarding security and responsibility.


Although all of the participants agreed that there should be a DIY project with skateboarders, the problems of the insurance, little space and costs won’t make it easy to find a solution pleasant for everyone.


The last day of the Moving Urban Cultures festival ended with a concert of the argentinian band Faauna. The two musicians kept the audience moving with their so called Cumbia bass: a mix of electronic music combined with relevant lyrics.


Thanks to all coordinators, artists, visitors and helping staff the festival was a full success and enabled an exchange of people with all kind of different backgrounds.
