Skateboarding icon Mike Vallely just announced the first annual Glory Bound Festival, a music and skating event that he is curating. It will take place on Saturday, Nov. 13 at the Hollywood Palladium.
It succeeds Vallely's Glory Bound Skatepark Tour, which stopped at 24 cities around the country this summer. According to the press release, it will be "a sensational day of live and loud music and hard and fast skateboarding."Here's what you'll see at the event:
- An outdoor professional skateboarding All Star jam, dubbed "The Legends Jam," which take place on a custom made 40 foot wide, six foot high mini ramp, featuring one of the original Z-Boys, Tony Alva; member of Bones Brigade, Steve Caballero and skaters Christian Hosoi and Lance Mountain
- A vendor village with food trucks
- A live concert headlined by Pennywise, Alkaline Trio, Authority Zero, Nations Afire and Vallely performing with his new band Banished, featuring members of Revolution Mother, Throwdown, Mean Season and The Suicide File.
Vallely wants to give both music and skating the same level of importance at Glory Bound Festiva; he says, "Moms and dads can bring the kids out and show them how it's really done."
