Lights, Camera, Toro Y Moi

Can't think of a better way to spend a Thursday night than beneath a rainbow of light at the House of Vans amongst Brooklyn's finest. Toro Y Moi, Shlohmo, and Jonwayne hit the stage for the second Vans House Party of the summer, and good times were had. See more at vansmusic.tumblr.com.

Going OFF! with the House of Vans in Calgary



The House of Vans recently took a little side trip to Calgary as part of the Sled Island music festival, with our friends OFF! manning the stage. Calgary artist Josh Rucks also designed a series of free limited-edition Vans T-shirts to get everyone laced up before OFF! took over the house.

That night was the eve of the Calgary floods, which did extensive damage across Alberta, affecting many communities and forcing thousands of families out of their homes. Having witnessed the onset of the flood, our thoughts are with our friends and family

Hats Off To Metallica

Can we just take a moment to bask in the killer festival that Metallica pulled together for yet another year? Nevermind the fact that they just owned the entire weekend with TWO unbelievable sets. The Trujillo Trio also returned after their debut at last year's festival. Check out photos below from other performances too, including FIDLAR, Rocket From The Crypt, The Dillinger Escape Plan, and more!

Hitchin' a Ride with the Vans Skate team

Sometimes you've just gotta take a ride on the wild side. For the Vans Skate team, that meant hopping on some off road segways while hanging at Orion Music and More. They also spent some time meeting with fans and, of course, hitting up the Vans Damage Inc vert ramp this weekend.

It's All Fun and Games on the Vert Ramp

When Metallica wasn't surprising the crowd with a secret set or closing out the entire Orion Music and More fest this weekend, Robert Trujillo was having some fun with the Vans Skate team. Check out some shots of him hanging at the Vans Damage Inc vert ramp during the last skate demo of the weekend (plus some rad shots of the skaters in action).

Skate's Up on the Vans Damage Inc Vert Ramp

While the bands were shredding the stages at Orion Music + More yesterday, there were skaters aplenty ripping it up on the Vans Damage Inc Vert Ramp. They definitely had an awesome view for all of the sets on the Vans Damage Inc stage too.

EarlWolf Sydney Show

Sydney got a good ol' dose of hip hop from Odd Future alumni EarlWolf, featuring Tyler, The Creator, and Earl Sweatshirt. Talk about an explosive lineup. Rad photos by Mitchel at LifeWithoutAndy.

But hey, if you need more Odd Future in your life, get a load of the Vans Syndicate x Odd Future Old Skool Pro "S". Instant classic.
