DC SHOES: THE TAKING LONDON / SAT 4th AUGUST
DC’s awesome ten day UK skate tour will culminate on Saturday, 4th August with a full on invasion of the Old Truman Brewery for The Taking, London.
In conjunction with the Yours for the Taking campaign, DC will be creating a one-off park setup focused around a massive black-cab-gap which will be open all day to local skaters, with demos from the pros and a classic skate jam plus Cash for Tricks comp. DC will also have a unique exhibition at Unit G4, Dray Walk which will explore the history of the brand’s skate and streetwear fashion heritage – back to the days of Droors Clothing and the OG Lynx.
All the action will conclude in an epic DC Afterparty at Juju’s Bar, with the chance to grab a drink with the DC Pros and catch an exclusive gig from Mancunian hip hop artists, Levelz!
DCUK‘s own skaters will be joined by Wes Kremer, Tiago Lemos, Tristan Funkhouser, Thaynan Costa, Madars Apse, John Shanahan, Jaakko Ojanen and Josef Scott, as well as renowned photographer and videographer, Mike Blabac and Chris Ray.
