Crepe City Steps Up To Its 15th Anniversary with A Manchester Take-Over

The sneaker and lifestyle festival will transform the city's Bowlers Exhibition Centre.

Crepe City will be dropping by Manchester’s Bowlers Exhibition Centre this weekend, extending their annual celebration of sneakers, streetwear and music.

This year marks the platform’s 15th anniversary, originally founded in London with hopes of solidifying the UK’s sneaker community through regular meet-ups. Since then, fellow enthusiasts continue to trade and socialise over a vast array of sought-after models, joining Europe’s largest pop-up sneaker shop and lifestyle festival.

With over 200 vendors, the crowds of Manchester will be met with a particular special line-up, stepping up to yet another milestone in Crepe City’s journey. Upholding the city’s prolific hip-hop scene with a number of live performances and DJ sets, Black Josh will be welcomed to the Habitat stage, hosted by rising multi-disciplinarians AK Gramm and Tone Rarri. Elsewhere, one can re-vamp their go-to sneakers at the Crepe Protect cleaning station, explore the history of different models alongside professionals or simply quench their thirst with the aid of Strongbow, Red Stripe and more. There will also be the opportunity to authenticate up to two pairs of shoes per person and win exclusive giveaways via the Crop of Flop KEYMASTER machine.

Crepe City Manchester will take place on April 28th at Bowlers Exhibition Center. Tickets are available to purchase here.
