Indian has announced that it will be the title sponsor for the 2019 Wheels and Waves festival in Biarritz. The event runs from Wednesday the 12th to Sunday the 16th of June and will once again be celebrating the culture of motorcycling, skateboarding and surfing.

“From our first attendance in 2016, it was clear that this event was something quite special, and why we became title sponsors the following year,” says Grant Bester, VP and GM for Indian Motorcycle EMEA.

“With such a diverse range of events and activities, it’s really unique and resonates with our owners. We’re delighted to be official partners once again in 2019 and look forward to seeing everyone there.”

For five days, France will host like-minded people for a mix of music, art, and food, all coming out of the vibrant motorcycle, skate and surf scenes.

Every day there will be trade stands, surfing contests, skateboard sessions, music concerts, film and documentary screenings as well as special events held across multiple venues.

Organised by Jérôme Allé and Julien Azé, the theme for the eighth edition is ‘Back to the roots’. Jérôme Allé explains, “We really want to revive the spirit of Wheels & Waves origins, based on meeting and sharing different worlds and cultures, this enthusiasm and energy that allow us to live, for a few days, a unique experience in our life.”

Indian Motorcycle will add to the experience once again with its Wall of Death spectacle in the main village, while Indian Motorcycle DTRA Hooligans will be over the border in San Sebastian, Spain for a day of racing in the El Rollo Flat Track event.

For those buying a five-day ticket in advance, Indian Motorcycle will automatically enter them into a prize draw for a chance to win the all-new FTR 1200.
