The Independent Culture
This weekend's Sprite Urban Games will be a magnet for adrenaline junkies: skateboarding, BMX, street basketball, scratching/mixing, breakdancing, graffiti and electronic games all feature as Board-X take over Clapham Common.

Hundreds of spectators will be there to watch professionals perform (including the legendary BMX rider, Matt Hoffman) and to buy the latest retail equipment/street fashions.

BMX and skateboard exhibitions promise gravity-defying performances while the UK leg of the European "King of Dirt" Tour guarantees thrills and spills.

Scores of DJs will be providing a selection of grimy beats. This could be the block party of the summer.

Clapham Common, London SW4 (0171-729 8442) 10pm-8am, pounds 8, today and tomorrow
