Vans’ host their first carnival-themed New York Show and will include performances from Julian Casablancas + The Voidz, Cherry Glazerr, a DJ set by Ballzy, and other musicians in August of this year. Free carnival and light-themed music events come live from Brooklyn and takes place at the House of Vans office building located off New York’s Greenpoint Neighborhood. Vans will reinvent the traditional country carnival by bringing it into the city for three surprise music showcases. House of Vans will transform its expansive Brooklyn event space into a carnival playground featuring live music, interactive games and captivating custom art installations throughout the venue. Countless Vans prizes will be available for lucky winners along with the traditional carnival snacks of hot dogs, snow cones, and pretzels.
Celebrated for his work at Venice Architecture Biennale, the New Museum and Palais de Tokyo, Ken Farmer of Nuit Blanche New York, is set to bring the beloved House of Vans space to life in a way never experienced before. Each headlining performer will collaborate hand in hand with Farmer, as they morph the 25,000 square foot space into a unique live art installation. Along with an indoor concrete bowl and outdoor skate plaza, this window into the world of Vans includes a permanent concert stage and enough space to virtually do anything our imaginations allow. Guests can RSVP on the House of Vans website.
