The mighty Crepe City Festival is making a triumphant return to Glasgow on June 25 at Boxhub Warehouse. The biggest trainer festival in Europe is back with a bang bringing a touch of authentic Glaswegian flavour to the mix as well as their patented brand of festival meets luxury shopping experience. So expect to be entertained as well as being able to find some of the rarest trainers on the market. If you’ve been dilly-dallying on whether to get tickets, we’ve got 5 reasons you should grab those Crepe City tickets now.
1. Find the rarest trainers on the market
Let’s start with the obvious one – trainers. We can’t not mention the fact that you’ll have the best vendors and resellers from across the UK all under one roof at Crepe City. That means the most exclusive trainers on the market all easily accessible to you. No virtual queues. No raffles. Just good old fashioned if you see the trainers on display, you can buy them. Expect everything from Jordan’s, those coveted collaborations (like the Sacai Vaporwaflle’s), alongside a whole host of colourways of your favourite silhouettes.
2. The vibes courtesy of Peach
We did say there’s Glaswegian flavour at this year’s Crepe City. Peach, the brand that’s taken Scotland by storm since its emergence in 2017, is going to be taking over the stage on June 25. The live music platform and events brand is bringing the best in emerging artists alongside some incredibly talented DJs to their collaborative Crepe City stage and Peach Radio show on Foundation FM. We say all of that to say: it’s going to be great vibes with Peach handling entertainment.
3. All your trainer needs covered by Stock X & Crep Protect
Buying trainers isn’t as simple as it once was. You used to buy a pair of trainers and not only would you never have to question their authenticity, but they’d also last a good while. Luckily that’s why having StockX and Crep Protect on board makes perfect sense for Crepe City. For anyone who wants to make sure they haven’t been scammed with replicas, StockX will have their authentication team on site ready to verify any shoes you bring to them. On the flip side, if you’re wanting to make sure your trainers last, Crep Protect has everything you need when it comes to shoe care supplies and tips. Even better, both have their own respective giveaways planned throughout the day – including the Guess The Grail Spectacular where you could win an exclusive pair of trainers.
4. Update your wardrobe from head to toe
Yes, we’ve already said you can pick up the rarest trainers, so that’s the toe part of that covered. You can also pick up all of your other needs from the biggest and best names in streetwear as well as some pieces from luxury fashion brands. So whether you need a fit to complement those new trainers you got or just want to pick up some new bits, Crepe City has got you covered. Who knows you might even stumble across a few nostalgic vintage pieces knocking about the stalls.
5. It’s only here for one day
Last we’re going really simple. Taking place on June 25 this year, Crepe City’s return is short but sweet. The one day event happens in Glasgow once a year and then it shoots off to other locations around the globe. We wish it could be around for longer but unfortunately, one day is all we get. So don’t miss out on getting your tickets now whilst you still can, if you do just imagine the FOMO feeling of having to wait a whole year for your next chance to check out Crepe City in Glasgow. Sneakerheads, you know what to do.
