Firestone cranks up the volume at Download

Firestone cranked up the volume at Download 2017 to make an impression with thousands of music lovers – who are now being offered a chance to win some exclusive themed memorabilia.

Two incredible acts on the Firestone Stage each day, a crowd-favourite tyre spinning game, and thousands of bobbing red hats ensured that Download was a show to remember for the iconic tyre brand.

And now, with the dust barely settling on the event, Firestone is urging everyone to send in their favourite festival photos to remember Download by, with one of 10 DIY festival packs – including Lamzac, sleeping bag, lightsound speaker and a set of bluetooth headphones – up for grabs. One hundred shoe covers will also be given away as runners-up prizes so the rain doesn’t stop the party. To enter, visit Firestone’s Facebook Page.

Firestone’s presence at Download formed part of the Firestone’s Music Tour, an original sponsorship programme for major music festivals across Europe in Spain, Germany, France, Poland, Italy, Denmark, the UK and Ireland.

It is the second successive year that the brand has been amplified at Download, with the decision heralded as a ‘brave, bold attempt’ to position Firestone right at the heart of a passionate young-at-heart community.

The Firestone Stage welcomed Four Year Strong and Red Sun Rising (Friday), Alestorm and The One Hundred (Saturday) and The King Blues and RED FANG (Sunday). The stage proved to be a focal point of the entire festival, with thousands of music lovers – sporting red Firestone hats – descending to the stage each day.

Firestone’s brand manager Stuart Attfield said

We built on our 2016 presence and really couldn’t be more thrilled with the way things went. Our presence confirmed that Download Festival is the perfect platform to amplify the brand and our range of products.
Our levels of interaction – both at the Firestone Stage and on our social networking channels – exceeded our expectations. We took a great deal away from Download and were delighted with the success of the event.
