There are many reasons to consider promotional merchandise targeted towards festival-goers, or for having ready to hand-out at any festivals your brand might have a presence at. For example...

  • Branded festival merchandise often offers a genuine use for your customers, whether it's protecting them from heat or helping them stave off a hangover It aligns your brand with great memories and good times - every time your customer picks up their pair of printed sunglasses, for example, they'll remember the fantastic time they had
  • Promotional festival merchandise can position your logo in front of a huge audience of potential new customers; according to research more people than 'ever before' are heading to festivals across the UK
  • If you're a regional-based business, getting your brand 'out there' at nearby festivals (which are likely to be attended by people who live in the area) can be an excellent way to spread the word about your services
  • Most of our promotional festival items are available for dispatch on a quick turn-around basis, meaning your order will be with you ASAP, no matter how last-minute you think you might have left it!

Of course, there are many other reasons why having a brand presence at festivals across the UK can make a brilliant promotional opportunity for your business.

Mini Hang Over Kits

If your target customer is most likely to be rocking out at a music festival this summer, these promotional hangover kits are proverbial lifesavers. (Maybe not so proverbial, actually.)

With your company's branding clearly printed on the kit's exterior, it contains a myriad of hangover-busting essentials, including a cooling gel eye mask, a packet of mints, a 5ml face spray and even a refreshing wet wipe. 

Branded Express Silicone Wristbands

Ideal for handing out to specific customers - for example, if you're welcoming guests to your branded VIP bar area - our printed wristbands can double-up as both non-paper tickets as well as stylish souvenirs of a fantastic event. Best of all? They can be dispatched in as little as three working days. Speedy!

Ear Plug Pillow Packs

Partying like a rockstar is all well and good, of course, but - whisper it - it can be hard to unleash your inner Rolling Stone if you're exhausted from a bad night's sleep. Catching 40 winks at a weekend-spanning festival can be a notoriously tricky skill to master but your customers will stand a much better chance of feeling daisy-fresh with the help of these branded earplugs. 

With your company logo clearly printed on the package, they're presented in, your customers will think of your business fondly when they pick up these sleep-saving sound-blockers. 

Manual Charging Dynamo Torch

There's no need for disposable batteries with this eco-conscious torch, which can be powered up by hand. Perfect for allowing your customers to find their way to even the most dingily lit Portaloo, it features your business logo clearly printed on its front for an instant hit of brand awareness.

Of course, another perk of this clever promotional torch is it can be taken home after the festival and used, too, guaranteeing your branding will stay present with your customers for longer than you might have originally imagined. 

Printed Fiesta Sunglasses

Help keep your customers safe in the sun - without leaving your brand in the dark! Our promotional full-colour sunglasses are available in your choice of 10 colours and, with your logo printed on the arms, offer a brilliant opportunity for a little extra brand awareness. 

50ml Standard Clip Hand Sanitisers

Festivals can get mucky - so if you're running a health-related campaign, why not tie it into the festival season by offering your customers our printed standard clip hand sanitisers?

Featuring your artwork printed onto the front of the bottle and with the easy-attach clip meaning it's easy to keep close-to-hand, this is a promotional product that's perfect for offering a little sense of cleanliness and hygiene to your customers... Even if the setting they find themselves in is decidedly less than clean!

Express 2600mAh Tube Power Banks

Chances are your customers will use their mobile phones endlessly to capture memories and moments from the fun, whether it's selfies with the stage in the background or Boomerangs of crowd-surfing.

Tackle this in style by arming your most-valued clients with branded power banks, such as our 2600mAh option, which will allow them to charge up their devices as and when they please - and with your company's logo on display the whole time. How's that for a charged-up idea?
