Event: LACES OUT! (@lacesoutfest) RETURNS SAT 19TH NOVEMBER @ Camp and Furnace, Liverpool


Laces Out! Fest­iv­al in Liv­er­pool, Eng­land is one of the UK’s best and biggest cel­eb­ra­tions of Hip-Hop Music and Cul­ture. The one day fest­iv­al brings togeth­er new key ele­ments of Hip-Hop Cul­ture — focus­ing spe­cific­ally on Sneak­er Cul­ture, Music and Per­form­ance. This com­bin­a­tion makes Laces Out! the only major event of its kind in the North of Eng­land, a place renowned for its love, appre­ci­ation and his­tor­ic rela­tion­ship with music and train­er cul­ture.

Liv­er­pool has an undis­puted long and stor­ied his­tory with train­er cul­ture. There­fore it is obvi­ous that the city would play host to one of the most excit­ing train­er fest­ivals in Europe, Laces Out!, which presents its autumn-winter edi­tion on Sat­urday 19th Novem­ber at Camp and Fur­nace in the Balt­ic Tri­angle.

The one-day fest­iv­al enjoyed unpre­ced­en­ted suc­cess for its spring edi­tion in March, where high­lights included an eclect­ic dis­play and sale of new, rare and vin­tage train­ers, an exclus­ive In-Con­ver­sa­tion between Inter­na­tion­al Train­er and Hip-Hop expert, Bob­bito Gar­cia and BBC 1Xtra’s DJ Sem­tex, per­form­ances by Hip-Hop Stal­warts Rod­ney P and Skitz and the première screen­ing of the uncut Adi­das Spezi­al doc­u­ment­ary. Enthu­si­asts trav­elled from across the nation to attend in record num­bers.

For November’s edi­tion — dubbed Laces Out! AW16 — the one day fest­iv­al will boast an upgraded mar­ket­place, with a wider vari­ety of train­ers, appar­el and accessor­ies for men, women and chil­dren. In addi­tion, peri­pher­al activ­ity includes an exclus­ive Q&A with author and lead­ing train­er expert Neal Heard and a pan­el look­ing at UK Train­er Cul­ture past, present and future fea­tur­ing Oi Polloi’s Nigel Lawson, Lost Art’s Dave Mackey, CrepJunkie’s Nath­aniel Thomas among oth­ers. Also expect free train­er clean­ing provided by industry lead­er Jason Markk, an exclus­ive train­er themed art exhib­i­tion fea­tur­ing works by lead­ing artists such as Bri­an Can­non, Josh Par­kin and Steph Mor­ris as well as sets by lead­ing DJs from across the region includ­ing No Fakin’, Suedebrown, DJ 2Kind and more.

And for after hours, Elle­see present a free after-party at The Mer­chant on Slater Street.
