Process: strategy and approach
Challenges and solutions:
This is a somewhat saturated market and therefore it can be difficult to make an impact. However, festival goers generally will go to more than one festival and this festival caters to a wide audience. When the new landing page and poster are launched, Auckland City Council will run an incentive for people to share the event on their social media. Options include share your favourite song from the artist with the hashtag and be in to win free tickets or a meet and greet.
For families, offering local market goods, with a mix of artists and bands. The price point is more affordable than similar items on the market due to sponsorships and support from the council.
