Vice Island concert

This is how to throw a party on the Toronto Islands

The House of Vans on Vice Island was a single-day event open to anyone with an NXNE wristband or a quick RSVP and the ability to catch a ferry to the Island on a weeknight. With a sea-worthy, fully-licensed party boat to transport folks across the harbour, things were looking up. Those put off by steep drink prices on the boat were in luck upon a arrival: the event was open bar...for everyone. With ample booze to keep spirits high, everyone was ready to enjoy a lineup that included Pusha T, Future Islands, Omar Souleyman, Le1f and more. Toss in a skate ramp, free swag, perfect weather, and you've got yourself a one-of-a-kind event.
