Express, the preferred young, sexy, and sophisticated designer brand among fashion-forward young women and men, has partnered exclusively with DMX to produce four “EXPRESS ROCKS” branded promotional events at music festivals throughout the US in 2010.
“EXPRESS ROCKS” officially launched at South by Southwest Festival and then took part in the Indioasis Music Lounge during the Coachella Festival. Live performances for these events included the bands Frank and Derol, The Constellations, Neon Trees, War Tapes and other well known bands that rocked out all day long! Most recently the Express Rocks campaign activated at the Bonnaroo Music and Art Festival giving customers, fans and the music industry a taste of what Express is all about! The Bonnaroo Express Rocks event included interviews with Weezer, The Postelles, Temper Trap, B.o.B, The Constellations and Mike Posner. Performances, band interviews including fashion must haves and music festival look books can be found on express.com—giving customers a behind the scenes look.
Express and DMX will continue the “EXPRESS ROCKS” campaign with online video, VIP event updates, performances, interviews and an online blogging component. The next stop is Lollapalooza 8/6 – 8/8, where Express will continue to bring customers to the music!
Taking the music fun a step further, Express is offering real time Facebook posts, Tweets and mobile alerts promoting the “EXPRESS ROCKS” sweepstakes—creating excitement by adding a viral component to the Express on-festival presence. The sweepstakes include roundtrip airfare for 2, hotel accommodations, festival tickets, and access to the Express Rocks party.
