When we announced the Vans 'Musicians Wanted' search in September of this year, we forecast a large number of submissions.
As now more than ever emerging talent need new platforms and initiatives to showcase their art on a global stage.
Safe to say high volume was an understatement, with over 22,000 participants the response has been incredible. Thank you to everyone who took time to submit an entry.
The global contest series welcomes the top finalists from all around the world including Europe, the Americas, and Asia-Pacific regions to perform for a global audience and win a bumper prize.
The prize includes special Vans product, Fender gear, global distro including Spotify & Apple playlisting and more. Plus the chance of a lifetime, sharing the stage with Clash cover star Anderson .Paak.
The West Coast guru spearheads the competition, and this latest round has proved to be the most popular yet. The contest series celebrates fresh, new and "Off The Wall" talent from all genres.
CLASH will also spotlight the lucky winner alongside runners up right here on our pages with a dedicated Off The Wall feature.
