West Coast Weekender Vendors & Artists
West Coast Weekender is only two weeks away, and we can’t wait for all of the debauchery with you guys!!! This week, we wanted to share what vendors/artists we are super pumped about and who we think you should keep an eye out for. It is a beautiful sight to see the community come together and showcase what they have for us all!
LITTLE BLACK DIAMOND
Love your body, love yourself.
Online clothing brand inspired by the festival culture. Their online website has a range of looks for festivals, gym, raves and burns. LBD will be selling their new summer 2016 collection and will have discounted items as well as a bunch of one-of-a-kind samples and prototypes for super cheap! Stop by their vending booth and say hi, the Little Black Diamond ladies will be sure to bring out your inner goddess here at the weekender!
The founder of TALENT SHOW, an art studio directed toward working with brands, dope events, and anything radical, is commercial artist Abe Vizcarra. He’s from one of our favorite local neighborhoods, Barrio Logan, and enjoys creatively targeting his audience by telling a story with his visually appealing work. After taking a trip through his instagram feed, TALENT SHOW is bringing anticipation to the art community attending WCW.
CLIQUE – VINYL & MERCH
Clique is a well-established group whose passion consists of lifestyle, music, art, and innovation. They are well known in the San Diego music community and WCW is thrilled for them to take part.
Halo and Paulo(clique) have also announced their newest project a vinyl shop, Artifact Record Shop, which will be opening up May 2016. Not only will they be providing a booth with dope clothing for purchase, but also be taking part in the line-up. Halo Varga and Paulo will be on Saturday and will be sure to bring the heat. Stop by their booth and scope it out!!
The WCW wants to expose something unique, something that will be universal and speak volumes. Michael Stutz, a sculptor from Chattanooga Tennessee who started making Mardi Gras floats in New Orleans over a decade ago, will be show casing his sculpture at the festival. His beautiful large weaving pieces have been shown everywhere from San Francisco to New York City. “These pieces are about identity — the idea of trying on a mask and figuring out who you are — but they’re also about diversity.” – Michael states (quote from The San Diego Union Tribune By U-T San Diego). We got word that he is in the makes of a giant head sculpture. They will not be releasing any pictures of the making of the head, wanting it to be a revelation for everyone that attends the WCW.
Give a Beat
We invited GIVE A BEAT, a non-profit organization that motivates music lovers, artists, activists, and pretty much everyone to involve, and engage in on social change and current affairs. There will be volunteers present helping our attendees register to vote and providing resources to get involved with the organization. How dope that they will have a set up at WCW to get people to help mold our future and register to vote.
Hopefully we have created more of a visual of what the festival will have to offer. These are just some of the vendors and artists that will be there but there are sure to be plenty more. Tickets are flying, thank you all for purchasing. Make sure to tell your friends before tickets sell out!
