SA’s Biggest House of Vans Experience Yet
‘Johannesburg is known for its cultural diversity and has strong roots in art, music and skateboarding,’ says Warren Talbot, Vans Marketing Manager, South Africa. House of Vans is an expression of the brand and the perfect opportunity for fans to connect with the brand.

Throughout the weekend, the House of Vans will showcase many more local artists like Desmond and The Tutus, Bye Beneco, Morena Leraba, Riky Rick, DJ Speedsta, Stilo Magolide, BATUK and DBN Gogo. This is not a drill: TWO international acts will headline the mainstage at #HOVJHB! Get ready to see Culture Abuse take the stage on Friday night and Rich The Kid will be on stage Saturday night.
Vans partnered with Baseline, Skate Society Soweto and UK-based company Yardsale to help curate a unique indoor skatepark. The open skate sessions will be available at scheduled times throughout the weekend along with Vans’ signature girls skate clinics and board building. Be sure to stick around for the “cash for tricks” contest on Saturday afternoon.
