Chance The Rapper Will Headline The Verge Campus Fall Tour 2014
The Verge Campus Tour is once again set to take U.S. colleges and universities by storm this Fall and will feature Chance The Rapper, one of hip-hop’s most exciting voices and whom Billboard claimed “won Lollapalooza” earlier this month. After yet another successful Spring Tour this past April with Krewella, Logic and Radical Something, the Verge Campus Fall Tourwill kick off September 26th at Cal Poly Pomona. Joining Chance The Rapper on the nationwide trek will be LA-based music and art project Young & Sick and Sweater Beats, a producer/DJ who creates dream-soaked pop and lush R&B. Past Verge Campus Tours have completely sold out.
The Verge Campus Fall Tour 2014 is the premier collegiate lifestyle music festival and the first of its kind. The concert features both Night Concerts and a daytime technology and brand engagement-based Interactive Village. The upcoming Fall tour follows two wildly successful tours featuring blowout performances by Kendrick Lamar, Steve Aoki, Krewella, Logic and Bad Rabbits and appearances by J. Cole, Macklemore, Schoolboy Q, Big Boi, Kelly Rowland, Young Jeezy, and others.
The Verge Campus Fall Tour 2014 will engage students with exclusive opportunities from leading brands during the day while curating a multi-genre music festival at night, creating a full-day campus-to-campus takeover. During the day, The Verge Campus Tour will promote education, entrepreneurship, technology, creativity, fashion and entertainment through its highly engaging Interactive Village. Students will be given a behind-the-scenes look at innovative technologies and brands while they test products, build relationships and land opportunities such as internships and post-grab jobs. The Village will also feature fashion brands, games, live musical performances, and presentations. Each Night Concert always features top talent and some of the most exciting emerging artists in music today. Together, each tour stop creates a fully immersive experience and a true convergence of styles, genres, and worlds – an environment that speaks to the millennials of the Verge Culture.
This Fall, the tour will be joined by Karmaloop, the #1 e-commerce retailer in urban streetwear, along with the creators of MTV’s The Buried Life, and Contiki Vacations, the world leader in youth travel experiences for 18 to 35 year olds. Together, The Buried Life and Contiki will hold “The Most Epic Bucket List Contest Ever” – a one-of-a-kind eight week contest to give one lucky winner an all-expenses paid trip of a lifetime to cross off bucket list items like “Design your own perfume in the French Riviera,” “Ride scooters around Tuscany,” “Learn to surf with the Billabong team in Australia,” (possibly) “Have a beer with Prince Harry in London” and the list goes on. Additional sponsors will be announced shortly.
Tickets for most shows will be open to both students and the general public and the full list of tour dates is below. Stay tuned to www.VergeCampusTour.com for ticket information in the coming weeks.
