“I participated in Influencer Activation on behalf of Millennial Central for Cricket Wireless. I received a promotional item to thank me for participating.”
I'm nearly 25 years old and have never really been to a traditional concert; you know, purchasing tickets online, traveling however long to the venue, sitting in cushioned stadium seats or, depending on who you see or how much you spend, standing in the pit area near the stage.
Possibly even staying a few days if it's a several day, multiple artist affair.
Of course there was this year's 2014 Wing Ding which IS technically speaking a concert event. The bands were really fun to listen to and converse with but I've been dying to see people like Florence and the Machine, Motion City Soundtrack, and Arctic Monkeys in concert for years now.
Especially Florence and the Machine. She's my girl!
Each person has their own tastes when it comes to musical artists, genres, and favorite songs but regardless, what it all comes down to is one thing: music is universally loved, respected, and acknowledged.
Thanks to Cricket Wireless, they're connecting their customers with that universal love of music by partnering with Pitbull and Enrique Iglesias to help fans create, experience, and share something to smile about during their Fall 2014 Tour!
Most sponsors of an event like this do just that; sponsor it. Cricket Wireless wants to take it to a different level for their customers by not only just sponsoring the event but by totally enhancing the fan experience with some seriously awesome and innovative activations!
The Cricket Stage, a 10x20 stage erected at select tour stops, is where fans can actually hop on stage and give their best "headliner" pose! You can share your 360 images via your social media channels thanks to the special "share kiosks" around the stage AND photos will be entered into a sweepstakes where a winner and 3 special guests will get a trip to the Miami Latin Grammy Street Party!
If that wasn't a pretty unique experience already, participants of the Stage activation will also be lucky enough to receive Cricket ear buds.
Selfie Stations encourage fans and concert goers to snap a quick selfie of yourself or you and friends while having fun at the concert! These pictures can also be shared via your social media channels.
Ask Enrique-have the chance to win a trip to the Atlanta tour stop to meet Enrique himself and ask him whatever you want!
Located at high-traffic spots within the activation venues, the Hologram Standee Billboards of Enrique and Pitbull will create some completely lifelike images of the musicians that make any concert goers time that much more memorable!
This is exactly the kind of concert that I was talking about above! One that I would love to be able to participate in, especially with all those unique extras that have been thought up.
Thanks to Cricket, music lovers everywhere are going to be having the time of their lives! If you're a fan of Enrique and Pitbull, check out the tour stops. One might even be near you...
If so, take a concert selfie and share ;)
