Vans has officially announced the return of their HouseParties series at House of Vans Chicago!
Their ninth season kicks off this Friday, May 31 with the inimitable Vince Staples, and continues throughout the summer with a diverse array of shows including alt-rock heroes The Breeders, indie singer songwriter Julien Baker, singer-songwriter and pop sensation BANKS, seminal Vans Warped Tour alums Taking Back Sunday, the Grammy nominated Anderson.Paak, hardcore legends Converge, and more!
The Vans HouseParties series is particularly exciting, with the headlining artist acting as a curator by hand-picking all supporting talent and creating a custom visual art experience for fans. This year’s offerings have evolved to include interactive art takeovers, immersive installations, murals, and much more. In an effort to continually support and elevate Vans’ commitment to emerging talent, one burgeoning musician will be chosen by the headliner to open each Vans HouseParty show.
In 2017, Houseof Vans Chicago joined London as one of two permanent venues bringing the brands “Off The Wall” ethos to life. With an array of curated programming free to the community, the space is a cultural hub celebrating art, music, action sports and street culture. While the original Houseof Vans Brooklyn closed its doors last year, Houseof Vans continues to host pop-ups around the world, including Paris, Berlin, Detroit, Montreal, Guangzhou, Hong Kong and Mexico City.
If you were lucky enough to check out the House of Vans series in Detroit, you know that the company has found the sweet-spot of throwing genuine music and art events. While they are certainly empowered by the resources that come with being one of the most successful shoe brands in skateboarding and in the world, they maintain their integrity by partnering with organizations and artists that support their mission to facilitate events and experiences that are exciting, ambitious, and most importantly, authentic.
