This goes out to all musicians!

The all-time classic sneaker brand VANS is now accepting entries for the VANS MUSICIANS WANTED competition 2021. Up-and-coming artists from all over the world can apply to have the chance of winning various grants such as Spotify playlists, equipment, publisher deals and much more.

Musicians Wanted is a global music program that was launched last year and offers a stage for newcomer artists from a wide variety of genres. The special this year: Artists can share the stage with the British rocker YUNGBLUD.

Last year, around 22,000 talents from all over the world competed. In the end, JoeJas from Great Britain, Lucia Taccetti from Argentina and Numnum from Korea won the competition.

The jury is as diverse as its participants: Rapper, author, and comic artist Denzel Curry, who, by the way, was also featured in the latest VANS campaign, Julia Michaels, a Grammy-nominated songwriter, pop singer, and founder of 88rising, Sean Miyashiro, and YOUNGBLUD himself.

The top five finalists from each region will compete against each other in September in a virtual concert series and will have the chance to appear as the opening act for YOUNGBLUD in front of a live audience in 2022.
