Have you got an adrenaline side? At this year’s Youth Beatz you can zip across the length of a football field. You can go solo or race your friend as you go at speeds of up to 21mph.

Not a fan of heights? Maybe mountain biking, climbing or laser tag are your thing. If yes, why not visit the Galloway Activity Centre area with the pop-up mountain bike arena, climbing wall, or have a laugh in their zorbs for bubble football.

If you’re a fan of competition, you can head over to the inflatable zone to try your hand at a gladiator duel, dart quest, or human table football. Or if you just want a bit of fun on your own, you could try out the giant slide and rodeo bull.

Access Parkour will be there for the first time since 2018, bringing their parkour equipment for you to learn how to jump and move properly. It’s the perfect opportunity to tackle your fears and try something new with the qualified instructors.
There will also be leisure and sport activities, including taster sports and fitness activities for you to try in their Wellbeing Marquee,

Not sure on the size of the field and wondering how you will get from one end to the other. Why not try out the land train? It’ll have a stop at each end of the park so you can see what the whole site has to offer.

And finally, the Arboria II Luminarium will be on site for those who want a break away from the hustle and bustle of the event. The luminarium is a sculpture people enter to be moved to a sense of wonder. It’s a dazzling maze of winding paths and soaring domes where natural forms, Islamic architecture, Archimedean solids, and gothic cathedrals meld into an inspiring mix of design and engineering to provide you with the ultimate immersive, sensory experience.

All of the daytime activities are free and will be running on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 June, from 12 noon to 6pm.

A limited number of tickets is still available for Youth Beatz 2022 so make sure you act fast, apply at: www.youthbeatz.co.uk
