After more than 5 years hosting the annual Vans Off the Wall Music Night, it’s clear that 2012 marks the year in which the tour has finally come into its element. Unlike many other annual tours, Vans Off The Wall always makes sure it pleases a wide range of people by providing the crowd with a mix of genres always providing something for everyone and this year sees no different.
We popped along to the sold-out gig at the HMV Ritz in Manchester to review the show in all it’s glory and then snapped some pictures of Young Guns and We Are The In Crowd when the tour rolled up to the ABC in Glasgow.
If Vans weren’t doing enough with themselves at the moment with the up and coming UK Warped Tour, they’re also supporting the annual Vans Off The Wall Music Night Tour.
This year’s line-up isn’t holding back with some of the best rising bands around including Marmozets, hardcore boys Your Demise along with pop-punk darlings We Are The In Crowd. Finishing this years line-up is Buckinghamshire quintet, Young Guns, who after the success of sophmore album Bones have more than earned their headlining spot.
