Swisher Sweets and Taillight Bring the Beat
with National Concert Series and Promotion
This experiential campaign tripled the Swisher Sweets Artist Project social following and delivered compelling messaging through more than 200 pieces of content.
Brands are always trying to find new and exciting ways to attract and maintain their customers. Swisher Sweets and the Hip Hop genre have always had close ties, but how can the brand capitalize on that bond to attract consumers?
The answer was to surprise and delight consumers with the music they love. By putting on pop-up concerts, also known as Pack Nights, in major cities across the United States. Swisher Sweets could provide one of a kind experiences that their consumers wanted to share with their friends and followers via social media.
Taillight produced experiences in major cities across the US in which fans were able to attend concerts at iconic venues and see emerging artists alongside famous R&B artists Gucci Mane, Desiigner, Fetty Wap, Machine Gun Kelly, Cardi B and many more. At each Pack Night, an up and coming artist was awarded an opportunity to attend the finale event in New Orleans where all headliner artists performed. Content was gathered and promoted throughout the year.
Campaign In Action:
10 ‘Pack Night’ concerts in Los Angeles, Detroit, Philadelphia, Atlanta, and an end of the year ‘Take Over’ event in New Orleans. Most recently, in the summer of 2019, we produced the Swisher Sweets Summer Twist Yacht Party featuring 20 influencers including Shaquille O'Neal. Learn more here.
