Vans has relaunched the Vans Musicians Wanted competition globally—the first time since its inception in 2015. Musicians Wanted is the V.F. Corp. brand’s global music program that aims to provide a platform for musicians who are just starting out. The contest series will celebrate fresh, new and “Off The Wall” talent from all genres.
Featuring special guest judges as part of the selection process, Vans Musicians Wanted welcomes J.I.D and Bohan Phoenix, artists featured in the brand’s latest ad campaign, ‘THIS IS OFF THE WALL’; European based singer-songwriter Nilüfer Yanya; and Grammy award-winning artist, Anderson .Paak to review the top-five artists from each region. Three artists will be chosen to perform at the Vans Musicians Wanted Virtual Concert, to be held this December. One grand prize winner will be selected to receive Vans product, Fender Gear, global music distribution, Spotify and Apple Music playlisting and the opportunity to share the stage with Anderson .Paak as the opening act in 2021.
Vans’ Musicians Wanted competition is an inclusive global platform that enables creative self-expression through music and provides a direct path for undiscovered artists to step into the limelight and gain global exposure.
