Between acts at music festivals, guests look for ways to stay engaged and enjoy themselves. Being outdoors opens up many opportunities for brands to interact and get visitors active. At iHeartRadio Music Festival, The CW had cornhole and oversized Jenga stations for attendees to play with.

Giving attendees a chance to take home a token is something every brand should offer. It creates a brand loyalty between the company and guests because they associate products of a brand with their great experience at the event. Macy’s gave audiences a chance to make their own t-shirts with iHeartRadio logos. Jim Beam airbrushed their emblem on attendees so they became an advertisement for the brand while at the festival.
