The beloved Lollapalooza music festival celebrates their 20th anniversary this year, and they show no signs of slowing down any time soon. Although the 2011 concerts aren’t until August, early tickets have already gone on sale – and sold out. In fact, discounted 3 day passes that went on sale last week sold out in about an hour, a testament to how much fans truly love this event. And, Lollapalooza-lovers aren’t just limited to the United States. Bands played to an enormous crowd at the first annual Lollapalooza Chile concert in Santiago last weekend.
With hundreds of artists playing on almost a dozen stages, it’s easy to see why people love Lollapalooza. The better question is, why should companies care? Well, a captive audience presents the perfect opportunity for organizations to promote their message and enhance their brand loyalty. To effectively target Lollapalooza attendees, it’s important to think about the venue, as well as the crowd’s interests and ages. One idea is to distribute custom sunglasses, imprinted with your company name and logo. In addition to being affordable enough for mass giveaways, custom sunglasses are both fun and functional, so recipients will rock on with these products long after Lollapalooza season ends.
