For the first time since 2015, Vans is launching its Vans Musicians Wanted competition globally. The action sports brand is looking to provide a platform for emerging musicians from the United States, Canada, Mexico, Central & South America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific regions.
Participants will have the chance to compete for an opportunity to share the stage with Anderson .Paak. The Grammy-winning rapper/singer will also review the Top 5 artists from each region. Other special guest judges who will be part of the selection process for Vans Musicians Wanted include J.I.D, Bohan Phoenix, Nilüfer Yanya, and artists featured in Vans’ THIS IS OFF THE WALL brand campaign.
Three finalists will be chosen to perform at the Vans Musicians Wanted Virtual Concert this December. One grand prize winner will be selected to receive Vans product, Fender Gear, global music distribution, Spotify & Apple Music playlisting, and the opportunity to share the stage with Anderson .Paak as the opening act in 2021.
The 2020 Vans Musicians Wanted global competition is open to all musicians and genres of music. To read official contest rules and enter original music visit vans.com/musicianswanted. Submissions will be accepted through October 11.
