26th July – 4th August.
The dates are set, so get ready because the DC Shoes Skate Team will be descending on the UK for a packed 2018 skate tour. Touching down on the 26th July, watch out for them on the streets of Bristol, Brighton and London where they’ll be hitting all the top skate spots and core skate shops, before heading to East London for a massive takeover in the centre of Shoreditch.
DCUK’s own skaters will be joined by Wes Kremer, Tiago Lemos, Tristan Funkhouser, Thaynan Costa, Madars Apse, John Shanahan, Jaakko Ojanen and Josef Scott, as well as renowned photographer and videographer, Mike Blabac and Chris Ray.
This epic ten day tour will culminate on the 4th August with a full on invasion of the Old Truman Brewery for ‘The Taking’ London. In conjunction with DC’s Yours for the Taking campaign, they’ll be creating a one-off park setup focused around a massive black-cab-gap which will be open to local skaters, with demos from the pros and a classic skate jam plus Cash for Tricks comp. The event will also feature a unique exhibit exploring the history of the brand’s skate and streetwear fashion heritage – back to the days of Droors Clothing – followed by an exclusive gig in the evening from Mancunian hip hop artists, Levelz.
