Boozy Creative
Alcohol brands launch artist-centric events to attract a more diverse audience
Trend - As a marketing tactic, alcohol brands are partnering with musicians and artists for special events. These tend to be either one-off collaborations or part of a series. The activations are often open bar and have the potential to draw a younger crowd who is looking for events that encourage creativity.

Insight - Millenial and Gen Z crowds demand one-of-a-kind experiences from brands as their consumption habits favor authenticity and transparency more so than previous generations. Often, these expectations are not unreasonable and can be seamlessly integrated into the experience of the product itself. These changes stem from a rising consumer desire to be connected to culture and creativity while engaging with brand experiences.
