 The physical manifestation of the culture and creativity at the heart of the Vans brand, House of Vans fosters a rich heritage strongly committed to action sports, art, music and street culture.

 This exclusive show celebrates the release of Loyle’s highly anticipated sophomore record ‘Not Waving, But Drowning’ (AMF Records), released the following day on Friday 19th April.

 In addition to Loyle’s performance the House of Vans gallery space will host an exhibition curated by Loyle’s friends, family and some of the UK’s most exciting upcoming artists, including pieces from Damien Hirst and The Connor Brothers. The gallery space has been put together with the help of House Of Vans, The Other Art Fair and male suicide prevention charity CALM. The artists involved have created original pieces in response to every track from the album, which attendees will be able to listen to as they walk around the gallery.

 The exhibition will be on display until Sunday 28th April and the majority of pieces will be part of an online auction to raise money for CALM.

 Guests will be the first to get their hands on ‘Not Waving, But Drowning’, as the album will be available for pre-order all evening from the merchandise stand in Tunnel 4. At 12.01am Loyle will take to the stand to personally sign and hand deliver all copies bought on the night.

 This extremely special event at House of Vans will be free to the public and tickets can be claimed via ballot system at www.houseofvanslondon.com from 12pm BST on Thursday 4th April. Ballot closes Sunday 14th April at 9pm BST.
