The power of brand experiences at experiential events like music festivals is well-documented, and recent research conducted during Secret Sounds Connect’s recent Love Song Project served to reinforce this.

It not only found that 84% of attendees said they were More Likely or Likely to purchase a or use a brand after their festival experience, 78% also said they would share the experience with their friends.

“Music fans recognise that brand experiences add value to their festival experience,” said Secret Sounds Connect co-founder and managing director Kristy Rosser.

“The excellence of our festivals’ brand experiences is something music fans seek out, and Secret Sounds lead the way in this area in our market.”
