Vans will be celebrating 50 years of their “Off The Wall” heritage in action sports, art, music and street culture at House of Vans' first ever Singapore stop this Saturday, September 24th.
Held at the former Police Station located at 99 Beach Rd, this ambitious pop-up festival looks to "transport attendees into an experience that brings street culture and art firmly to the forefront with an engaging program that will run throughout the day including video screenings, haircuts, art and photography exhibitions and interactive workshops."
VANS helped made it possible for us to bring you this week's news. (What is this?)
And best of all, it's all free for everyone to participate!
Much like its iterations in New York and London, this inaugural event in the Lion City is expected to unite guests under a "checkerboard flag to showcase Vans’ unique culture through multifaceted activations including interactive workshops, vintage memorabilia installations, and unforgettable musical performances."
While that all sounds incredibly exciting, being a music website, we're naturally most intrigued by the fantastic lineup of acts Vans has curated for their House Of Vans Music Night. Featuring established acts from across the Causeway such as hip-hop crew Lawalah Familia, art-punk band Killeur Calculateur and feel-good rock band Volatile, this showcase certainly looks set to be loud, energetic and diverse,
Of course, there'll also be plenty of amazing Singaporean acts on the bill as well, including long-running oi-punk band Generation 69 (our Musicians Wanted winners!), veteran pop-punk legends Plainsunset, talented hip-hop young bucks Mediocre Haircut Crew (MHC) and famed rapper THELIONCITYBOY.
Vans' 50th Anniversary House Of Vans takes place at 99 Beach Road on 24 September from 2pm till late. Please visit their official website or follow #houseofvans for more information.
