Swisher Sweets ARTIST PROJECT
TAPS TAILLIGHT TO Bring the Beat
For more than three years, this experiential campaign has tripled the Swisher Sweets Artist Project
social following and continues to deliver compelling content from dozens of major artists.
Brands are always trying to find new and exciting ways to attract and maintain their customers. Swisher Sweets and music have always had close ties, with the brand being name-checked in hundreds of songs, but how can they capitalize on that bond to attract new consumers?
Surprise and delight consumers with the music they love! Swisher Sweets Artist Project is an ongoing initiative to provide unique opportunities for artists to create, share and pursue their passion. For fans, it's a way to be at the forefront of what's new and emerging in the world of music, arts and entertainment. From pop-up concerts, also known as Pack Nights, in major cities across the United States, to recognizing a new set of emerging talent in the game each year, to honoring established artists known for their 'Spark,' the Swisher Sweets Artist Project provides one-of-a-kind experiences for consumers.
And that's where Taillight comes in. Since 2017, Taillight has helped produce experiences for the Artist Project in dozens of major cities across the US. We have captured and distributed content from some of the biggest names in music including Gucci Mane, Desiigner, Fetty Wap, Machine Gun Kelly, Cardi B, DaBaby, Tyla Yaweh and many more through live events and concerts.
