Kicking off at Brighton’s The Great Escape from May 18 – 20 will be Jack Rocks The Hope & Ruin, an independent venue that has been part of the brand’s ongoing support of venues nationwide.
Jack Rocks will be present at the Isle of Wight Festival for the third year running, bringing a line-up of upcoming acts to the island from June 8 – 11. Jack Daniel’s will also be supporting the first ever TRNSMT festival on Glasgow Green from July 7 – 9, and the season will close with Jack Rocks’ activation at Reading Festival over the August Bank Holiday Weekend.
New for 2017, Jack Daniel’s has announced Jack Rocks 7, a group of seven hotly-tipped bands set to play at each of the four festival stages over the summer. The Jack Rocks 7 will be introduced at an industry showcase on April 18 at London’s The Sebright Arms, and consists of: Bang Bang Romeo, Broken Witt Rebels, The Blinders, The Sundowners, The Wholls, Trampolene, and White Room.
With the continued support of Splendid Communications, the activity will be promoted on social media throughout the summer, and via publicity and ticket giveaways in print and online media titles.
