Converse plan a string of summer dates in Central London’s famous venue, The 100 Club.
The Represent series, running from July 30-August 10, will host nine events, showcasing 45 artists, together making up “a free summer music series that invites fans and artists to represent their music and celebrate musical diversity.” Appearances will come from the likes of John Talabot, SBTRKT, Santigold, Plan B, Nas, Kano and much more; a genuinely legendary and diverse bill of artists.
In 2011, amid rising costs, higher rent and lower revenues, the venue that helped launch acts such as the Sex Pistols was on the verge of closure. The venue received a helping hand from Converse, and by teaming-up with with the 100 Club they hope to “introduce it to a new generation”.
Tickets will be made available free via their Facebook page. Head to their website for more info, and see the Converse Represent video below.
