HISTORY FEST

An interconnected festival at the heart of Sao Paulo.


︎︎︎ OVERVIEW:
Jim Beam’s first objective in Brazil was to attract urban millennials and get them to experience the “history making” power of the brand. A challenge easier said than done in a market completely dominated by much larger players with established market shares, big budgets and a completely closed-off on-and-off trade territory.

We’ve centred our efforts on the new up-and-coming central area of the country’s largest city, São Paulo, in order to capture the highest influx of trendsetters that in turn influence the whole country.

Together, we’ve created with over 8.000 participants a series of interconnected parties and experiences to the sound of international bands playing simultaneously at squares, alleys, private apartments and hidden bars.

Unbeknownst to the audience, the event generated in real-time an unprecedented video-clip for the new song ‘Alien’ by Wild Nothing, launched exclusively on Jim Beam’s platforms.
︎︎︎ RESULTS:
• More than 8.000 people attended the event;
• 32 million impacts;
• + R$ 2.5MM in earned media;
