House of Vans Takes Berlin!

Last week we joined Vans once again for the alwaaaays lit House of Vans event – this time in Berlin!

Rollin’ from the 29th – 31st March, House of Vans was held in the sickest skate venue – all the characteristics of an old warehouse but with Vans plastered all over! We took two of our amazing influencers, Layla Panam and Robyn Poppy, documenting the entire trip from start to finish! 🛹

House of Vans Berlin

Day 1 – Friday

Kicking things off, Vans held an absolutely banging concert with the UK’s own Nothing But Thieves headlining the night.

Packed to the brim with the raddest skate enthusiasts, the night was filled with rock acts from all over the globe makin’ an absolute madness!

Day 2 – Saturday

Vans came thru doin’ it for the gals on Saturday with a girls-only skate camp! With ambassadors on site helping with all things skating, our girls were lucky enough to craft their own skateboards from scratch, from choosing their board right down to screwing in all the nuts and bolts!

With no time to waste, Robyn and Layla put their boards to the test, jumping on the ramps to learn the basics. Welcoming our influencers into the fam, the Vans ambassadors had us skatin’ like pros by the end – well, almost 😉

Designed to encourage girls to start skating, there were gals of all ages hittin’ the deck and we can safely say we’ll be back on the board in no time!

The day was packed with everything from market stalls and food vendors to merch and workshops. You could even sign up to get your own Vans tattoo to mark the memory – next level!

Heading back to the venue for the evenings antics, Saturday night was a different vibe altogether. With world dominating rapper Octavian headlining the gig, the venue was packed out and the crowd was wild as they were treated to some of the top grime artists in the game 💥

By Sunday the trip came to an end for JD and our influencers. We had the sickest time and cannot wait till the next House of Vans event – big ups to House of Vans for having us!
