Owned and operated by global sports, entertainment and media biz company IMG Worldwide, the Vans US Open Of Surfing is boasting that the performances scheduled for July 25-26 on the House Of Vans Stage will be the “largest free concert of the summer.” We don’t know if it will be larger than Philadelphia’s annual free “4th of July Jam,” but IMG says “hundreds of thousands of fans” are expected to attend the beach shows over the course of two nights so maybe Philly has some serious competition for that “largest free concert” title.
Here’s the breakdown: The Faint, Twin Shadow and FMLYBND appear July 25; Matt Costa and Modest Mouse July 26.
“Over the years, the annual music stage has developed into a key component of the US Open. It defines the culture of this amazing action sports and lifestyle festival,” IMG VP Jennifer Lau said. “With Vans’ deep roots in music, this year’s stage lineup will be the best one yet.”
But the concerts take up only two nights of the Vans US Open Of Surfing which runs July 20-28. Like the concerts, all events are free and open to the public. Click here for more info.
