The nation’s leading producer of iPod and digital music player accessories today announced that it will be the presenting sponsor of ChazzFest, a new music festival launching in Charleston on September 16. Organizers today also released the festival’s performance schedule.
Digital Lifestyle Outfitters http://www.dlo.com has agreed to serve as presenting sponsor of ChazzFest http://www.chazzfest.com for its first two years. “DLO is all about making music fit into our customers’ digital lifestyles,” said company CEO Jeff Grady. “As music lovers ourselves, we are excited to help bring world-class music and artists to our hometown of Charleston, SC by presenting ChazzFest.”
Andrew Green, Vice President of Marketing and Creative Director for DLO, noted that the affiliation with ChazzFest is one of the company’s first forays into music festival sponsorship. The five-year-old company moved its headquarters to Charleston in 2004. “Our customers enjoy all kinds of music. When we saw the diverse, high caliber lineup that ChazzFest was bringing to the Southeast, we knew it was a perfect fit for our mission.”
“We’re excited about our partnership with Digital Lifestyle Outfitters,” said Riddick Lynch, a local music promoter and partner in ChazzFest. “There is such a natural and logical fit between our two companies. Clearly, there is the music connection, but moreover we are both young, rapidly growing and cutting-edge.”
