NEW ROCHELLE, NY --Live Nation and Jägermeister today announce an integrated Electronic Dance Music (EDM) festival program to engage their target consumers (age 21-24), to build brand loyalty, and foster true appreciation for the product. While the iconic brand is synonymous with music and music festivals, this is the first time Jägermeister will participate in an EDM program of this magnitude. This summer, Jägermeister will be the official liqueur sponsor of six festivals including Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) in Las Vegas and New York, as well as HARD SUMMER in Los Angeles.
A custom-built, festival-driven activation at each show will spark unforgettable experiences for fans with craft cocktails, DJ performances, an elevated deck for a great view and of course some unique surprises. Throughout the festival season, Jägermeister will unlock exclusive program content and reveal secret on-site experiences to fans through brand and festival related social channels.
"We're thrilled to be partnering with the world's leading live entertainment company, Live Nation, to launch our largest event marketing initiative to date in the United States," said Marcus Thieme, chief marketing officer at Sidney Frank Importing Company, Inc. "Consumers attending these six dance music festivals will be able to experience Jägermeister like never before by discovering its heritage and quality through a fully immersive, multi-sensory environment."
The legendary herbal liqueur is inviting consumers to explore more of the mystery and lure that surrounds Jägermeister. The EDM festival platform will focus on Jägermeister's rich heritage, 56 premium ingredients and the brand's complex production process in a unique and unexpected way. With more than 383 quality checks and a method that ages the product in oak barrels for up to a year, Jägermeister takes pride in its traditional craftsmanship and quality processes used to achieve its iconic taste profile.
"EDM is the music of the millennial generation. We are looking forward to partnering with Jägermeister to create the most captivating onsite experiences at our festivals, and having our Live Nation Studios team produce compelling content for the millions of dance music fans that attend our events and enjoy our inventive content online," said Russell Wallach, president of media & sponsorship for Live Nation.
Live Nation and Jägermeister will also produce a 12-segment original content video series exclusively for Jägermeister called "The Art of the Craft".
