Closing its festival season is Jack Rocks Hackney Wonderland on 10 October where, as headline partner, Jack Daniel’s will have a presence in all four East London venues.
“Our festival season is jam-packed this year, with a great mix of smaller, more boutique festivals, alongside some of the world’s largest and most famous. To have a presence at each of these, whether it’s a specially curated stage, or being the official whiskey partner, is going to be a lot of fun and we’re proud to be involved with each one,” said Jack Daniel’s senior brand manager, Michael Boaler.
“It’s always been important for Jack to have a hand in supporting great new music, as well as more established artists, and this is exactly what we’re set to do this summer to continue Jack’s long standing association with places where great music moments happen.”
Jack Daniel’s will be promoting all of the festivals on its social media channels as well as giving away tickets to each event.
