Chicago Summer Music and Art Series Features Performances by Vince Staples, The Rapture, Breeders, Julien Baker, BANKS, Taking Back Sunday, Anderson.Paak, Converge and more!
Costa Mesa, CALIF. (May 8, 2019) – Vans has announced the return of their House Parties series at House of Vans Chicago (113 N Elizabeth St). The ninth season kicks off on May 31 with rapper Vince Staples and continues throughout the summer with a diverse array of shows including alt-rock heroes The Breeders, indie singer songwriter Julien Baker, alluring singer-songwriter and pop sensation BANKS, the seminal Vans Warped Tour alum, Taking Back Sunday, the Grammy nominated Anderson.Paak, hardcore legends Converge and more!
The Vans House Parties series will also continue its tradition with the headlining artist acting as a curator, hand-picking all supporting talent and will be creating a personalized visual art experience for fans. This year, that experience will be expanded to include interactive art takeovers, immersive installations, murals and more. Additionally, to support and elevate Vans’ commitment to emerging talent, one burgeoning musician will be chosen by the headliner to open each Vans House Party show.
Vans House Parties provides one-of-a-kind experiences for concertgoers combining music and art, personalized for fans by the headlining acts. The 2019 Vans House Party lineup is once again filled with special moments including The Rapture’s highly anticipated appearance which will be one of their only reunions shows. BANKS has also chosen House of Vans to celebrate her fans and new music, and Taking Back Sunday has curated a Vans Warped Tour Tribute show celebrating Vans Warped Tour’s 25th Anniversary and culminating programming. RSVP and full details for the May 31 kickoff show with Vince Staples will open on May 15 at www.houseofvans.com.
