House of Vans Manchester, October 2-3
Following the success of the first European Outpost, House of Vans London, Manchester has been selected to host an incredible celebration of music, art, street culture and skateboarding.
The Great Northern Warehouse in Deansgate will undergo a dramatic transformation into House of Vans Manchester for the two day celebration. The 900- strong venue will welcome an incredible amalgamation of some of the biggest names in Electronic, Dub and Drum & Bass. Jenna & The G’s head up the night of music, taking to the stage with her live band. 8 Gold Rings ft Fox and Sparks will be delivering a potent mix of Dub and Drum n Bass whilst the likes of Madam X, Roy Davis Jr and Shadow Child will all be delivering blistering sets throughout the night. There’s more to come, including some very special guest announcements, so be sure to keep an eye on HouseofVans.eu for updates and announcements.
An art exhibition will be on display featuring works curated by three specially selected Size? x Vans ambassadors – Tattoo artist Jemma Jones, illustrator Jake B and famed street artist Krek. Guests can have the opportunity to leave their mark on House of Vans Manchester as Riso printing Workshops will run alongside the exhibition where ambassadors will be on hand to assist in customisable prints that will be then collated and compiled into a commemorative zine.
Beyond the incredible line up of music, there is a whole host of incredible activity to get involved with. Saturday 3rd of October has an entire day of varied activity for one and all to come and take part in. Skate schools will take place throughout the early afternoon courtesy of Black in the dedicated skate area as well as a demo from a pro demonstration courtesy of Black Sheep Store on a custom built obstacle that pays homage to the city of Manchester.
Those that are feeling creative have plenty to get stuck into and walk away with their own keepsake with free Vans T-shirt customisation courtesy of Man Up Girl! Visit HouseOfVans.eu for more information and follow the hashtag: #HouseOfVans
