Converse Road To Rubber Tracks Returns to India in 2016

MUMBAI: Today, Converse and its Indian licensee, Future Lifestyle Fashion Ltd. announces that the hugely successful Converse Road To Rubber Tracks platform is back with a bang. Last year, unsigned local bands from a variety of genres applied for the chance to record at the Converse Rubber Tracks Studio in Brooklyn, NY. The F16s from Chennai were the winners of last year’s search, and more recently Prateek Kuhad from Delhi was the Indian emerging artist selected to record as part of the Converse Rubber Tracks Global Studios program.

Converse is again looking for the best unsigned talent in India - whether you are in a band or a solo artist, a punk rocker or metal head, Converse wants to hear your sound. From January 29 until February 10, music artists are invited to apply to participate by visiting

Because we have the greatest fans in the world, it is only fitting that they are rewarded for making an artist’s dreams come true. Fans are invited to participate by voting for their favourite bands. From there, Converse will showcase these acts, where music fans can see their favourites perform at five free city showcase gigs in Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Pune and Guwahati, all taking place throughout February and March 2016.

One band from each city will also get a taste of what it’s like to record their track at a studio in their city, before jet-setting to Mumbai for the 2016 Series Finale. Band favourites will then battle it out in front of the crowd for the opportunity to travel to and record at Converse Rubber Tracks Studio in Brooklyn, NY.

Since its Brooklyn opening in July 2011, Converse Rubber Tracks has provided the incredible opportunity for artists to record in a state-of-the-art studio at no cost. Converse Rubber Tracks supports artistic expression by allowing musicians across all genres an opportunity to record for free and retain all the rights to their music. In the last three years, Converse has brought the Converse Rubber Tracks pop-up studio from Brooklyn to great music cities such as Toronto, Austin, Montreal, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Amsterdam, Paris, Beijing and Mexico City.
