Vans Musicians Wanted returns for 2021: Win the chance to share the stage with YUNGBLUD

Vans’ awesome 2021 Musicians Wanted competition not only puts the spotlight on up-and-coming musicians, but also gives them the opportunity to share a stage with Doncaster punk kid YUNGBLUD!

Vans have officially opened submissions for their awesome 2021 Musicians Wanted competition – which will offer one lucky winner the chance to share the stage with YUNGBLUD!

The contest – which is open now for aspiring musicians of all genres – not only puts the all-important spotlight on up-and-coming artists, it also involves numerous prizes: if you don’t make the cut to perform with the Doncaster rock’n’roll star, you could still win Vans and Kramer gear, a premium TuneCore prize pack, global music distribution, Spotify playlisting and more.

Calling all singers, rappers, drummers, even flutists,” say Vans. Whatever your musical vice, enter for the chance to perform with YUNGBLUD. Judges will pick a final five to perform in a digital battle for the grand prize. Content will be posted and shared on and our social platforms. Don’t miss your chance.”

Following on from last year’s Vans Musicians Wanted platform (which had over 22,000 submissions), Vans have Denzel Curry, Julia Michaels, Sean Miyashiro and, of course, YUNGBLUD on board to help out with the selection process. 

The top five finalists from each region (the United States, Mexico, Central and South America, Europe and Asia-Pacific) will get the opportunity to play Vans’ Musicians Wanted virtual concert series in September, before the ultimate winner will share the stage with YUNGBLUD in front of live audiences as the opening act in 2022.

To enter your original music (and read all the official rules), head on over to now! Entries close on July 23, so get cracking.
