Ballarat has secured another massive event that is expected to attract up to 12,000 people to the city in February.
Global sports entertainment company Nitro Circus has announced it will play a live show at Mars Stadium on Saturday February 29.
The Ballarat show will be one of only seven stops in Australia and one of two in Victoria in 2020 as part of the company's latest world tour, You Got This.
The other Victorian show will be held in Wangaratta.
We've always wanted to play Ballarat. We were close once before but it's official now.Andy Edwards, Nitro Circus
A Nitro Circus spokesperson said the Ballarat show was expected to attract a strong crowd as it would be the company's first live show of 2020 and there would be no show in Melbourne as part of the tour.
"We have ticketing data that shows people travel four hours plus to come to our shows," he said.
"We expect people will be travelling from different areas, that is why we scheduled the show on the Saturday to allow them to travel and make a weekend out of it in Ballarat."
The adrenaline-charged live show will feature the best athletes in freestyle motocross, BMX, skate and scooter from around the world, including Australian X Games winner Ryan Williams.

Nitro Circus chief executive Andy Edwards said the company had a strong and loyal following in Victoria.
"We've always wanted to play Ballarat," he said.
"We were close once before. But it's official now, and we are beyond stoked to be bringing the biggest and best action sports tour on the planet to Ballarat."
Ballarat missed out on hosting Nitro Circus Live in 2012 after a suitable venue could not be secured.

Ballarat Regional Tourism spokesperson Iain Gunn said Mars Stadium was a 'wonderful asset' and it was fantastic it would be utilised to bring people to Ballarat.
"Anything that can be done to activate Mars Stadium more regularly than the two or three AFL matches and one or two other sporting events in the pipeline is a good thing," he said.
"Bringing people to Ballarat can only be good for the town.
"It will mean people stay overnight and spend money in our restaurants and in our stores. We want to see more events like this bringing people to Ballarat."
Committee for Ballarat chief executive Michael Poulton said the event was a great opportunity for local businesses to enjoy what the tourism dollar could bring to the town.
"All credit to Mars Stadium and City of Ballarat for making it happen," he said.
No roof on the Mars Stadium means the Nitro Circus show can feature the Giganta ramp that launches athletes five stories into the air.
Nitro Circus has produced more than 380 shows across 37 countries in the past 10 years and is currently in the middle of a two-year stadium trek for You Got This.
