After a two-year hiatus, Vans’ “Share the Stage” shows returned in April, this time at its recently-opened House of Vans venue in Mexico City, as four up-and-coming artists from all over the world were invited to share the stage with soulful singer-songwriter Jessie Reyez and English rocker Yungblud.

Vans’ new space in Mexico City’s buzzing neighborhood of Mixcoac is not only intended for mega concerts but also serves as a hub for the local community, supporting skateboarders, artists, chefs, and creatives.
