The return of House Of Vans Kuala Lumpur is set to be bigger and louder this year! Round up your friends and celebrate the Off the Wall spirit where y’all can let loose over skate activations, art installations, workshops and live music – inspiring everyone who wants to run, roll or stomp through the door.
We’re not kidding when we say it will be bigger because the event will be held at Sentul Depot, Kuala Lumpur where you’ll have roaming space of up to 55,000 square feet.
The event will be happening next week on 21 September with doors opening at 2pm. Best part? It’s free, hell yeah!
Their live music stage will start at 3pm with indie heavyweights Hujan and right after, Mafidz with their blend of folk-pop. Sweetass then takes the stage, paying tribute to ’90s alternative. Also on the lineup are Nusantara rockers Pitahati and the ever-eclectic The Venopian Solitude.
Lil Asian Thiccie will be representing hip hop at this year’s show while Mooner makes their way across the sea from Indonesia to give Malaysians a taste of their psychedelic rock flavour for the first time. Finally, get ready to twist and dance with Masdo as they close the show with their ’60s Pop Yeh Yeh-inspired tunes.
Besides the music, six of the reigning skate shops and their teams from the Vans Shop Riot & DIY Showdown are going to shred together as they compete with their newly created skate obstacles in the Shop Riot Finals.
There will also be 3 special screenings and an exclusive premiere of a local film showcasing the 20-year journey of Johorian ska punk legends, Plague Of Happiness. Masdo will also be premiering their recent recording experiences at Abbey Road Studios, London titled Masdo Ke Jalan Abbey.
You can even watch a one-of-a-kind skate tour video that takes place from Penang to Kuala Terengganu featuring local skateboarding legend Pa’din Musa and the rest of the Vans Family on a mission to help out the local skate community in Terengganu.
Last but not least, you can find snacks and other creative products as you walk through their street market too.
Whether you’ll be dancing your feet off or skating through the venue, get ready to be surrounded with sk8er-boi energy and have fun!
