Stars, as they say, are just like us. They like Halloween, and they like Halloween candy. Such was the talk on the red carpet before Vevo’s Halloween concert that featured some of the hottest emerging names in music today. Young fans packed San Francisco-area’s Craneway Pavillion to see e Khalid, Aminé, Jessie Reyez, Julia Michaels, and Sza perform some of their hottest tracks. It was all costumes, cocktails, and high energy all in celebration of Halloween.
After four years in the UK, Vevo decided to bring its flagship Halloween event to the US. For the first time, the event took place simultaneously in the U.S. and Victoria Warehouse in Manchester. The US show featured full live sets from 2017 Vevo LIFT artists for about 4,000 music fans amidst film level venue design.
The lights and sound were top notch, but before all the action, talk was about Halloween memories.
Here is the breakdown from some of your fave new artists:

Julia Michaels: I remember having an Elmo costume that I adored
Amine: I had a pirate costume one year that was the best. I had the earring and everything!
Khalid: One year I was Buzz Lightyear. It was great.
