We are very excited indeed to announce that House of Vans will make its first ever UK festival appearance at Bestival this 2-5 August. Hosting a brand new den of creativity, House of Vans will feature live acts, art and ingenuity, with innovative, offbeat and original music curated by House of Vans, Sunday Best and DIY Magazine.
Rob da Bank says: “Just when we thought we couldn’t get any more of the best new up-and-coming bands and DJs in the world at Bestival, we’ve only gone and teamed up with Vans for their first ever festival appearance. The House of Vans is a brilliant new venue designed collaboratively between us and them and boasts a killer line-up booked by yours truly and Vans including Besti faves Kurupt FM alongside a UK festival exclusive from YOTA plus the likes of Jimothy Lacoste, The Xcerts and Superfood. Vantastic!”
Dropping big time garage bangers and spitting essential South London consciousness, we are ecstatic to reveal the mighty Kurupt FM headline Friday night in House of Vans. Brentford’s finest pirate DJ crew, Kurupt FM have never been less than sensational at Bestival so don’t miss out.
We also have unmissable performances curated by Sunday Best, DIY Magazine and House of Vans over four days from blistering noiseniks Spring King, a festival exclusive appearance from Yota: Youth of The Apocalypse, eclipse-swerving quartet The Big Moon, heads-down power-poppers The Xcerts, alt-pop chanteuse Laurel, chameleonic duo Superfood, and bedroom pop trailblazer Jimothy Lacoste.
Plus, we’ll have even more music across the weekend from Anteros, Riko Dan, Nimmo, Chelcee Grimes, Xylaroo, Biig Piig, Mellah, Lost Colours, Lady Bird, Walt Disco, Pearl City, Holiday Oscar, Lauran Hibberd and Zandi with one more very special guest to be announced.
Taking its place among an array of awesome venues, House of Vans’ sleek warehouse will entertain a live music stage with its own bar, and a vintage photobooth. There will also be a workshop space with screen printing hosted by Lovenskate, who’ll rework a range of festival essentials including bucket hats and bum bags for festivalgoers. Hair braiding gurus Keash bring their mobile braid bar to the space providing free braiding throughout the day. Alongside the workshops there will be skate film screenings, merchandise giveaways, and an outside courtyard with plenty of space for all to lounge with live art installations and delicious food and juice concessions.
A must for new music lovers, don’t miss House of Vans at Bestival.
