On March 13 – 17, Jam in the Van descended upon Austin, Texas for a week of non-stop music and content creation. There was a gear lounge for artists to jam in and a streaming lounge where performers were streaming live every day, and of course we had our Jam Van Sessions happening, as well, 46 of them to be exact.

We discovered acts who you should all keep your ears and eyes open for like The Shackletons, Super Doppler, Fashion Jackson, and the Seratones. We threw a piano into The Van for Robert Ellis… and our creative director Jack crashed his drone into the side of a hill and made our intern Ben kayak out to fetch it with him. In short, we had a solid time.
