The company behind the iconic Chuck Taylor has been giving back to the creative community, that has supported the brand for over 105 years, by setting up the Rubber Tracks pop-up studios and offering promising artists a platform to “unleash their creative spirit”. Rubber Tracks has just announced that it is making its third return to Amsterdam this October.

From October 7th to the 16th, the ten artists that have been picked out from the applications will be offered a full day recording session, while the city is gearing up towards ADE. Converse Rubber Tracks Amsterdam will also again be cooperating with underground institution Red Light Records, the studio and record store located at the infamous red light district in the heart of the city. Next to this the Amsterdam Dance Event itself will host Converse Rubber Tracks Live, an energetic live music showcase where the selected Rubber Tracks artists will be the supporting act of an internationally acclaimed producer.
