Brandspeak: What Retailers Can Learn From Music Festivals

The following is a guest post by Alasdair Lennox, Executive Creative Director, EMEA, at FITCH: Britain’s retailers could be forgiven for thinking that in the wake of high-profile closures prospects for the once great local high street look bleak. But as the hordes converge on Worthy Farm for this year’s Glastonbury Festival, they should draw comfort in the knowledge that brick-and-mortar retail can still flourish by being a little more rock-and-roll.

Actually, says Hadley Freeman, it is one of the best places to be when the real world succumbs to panic, prejudice and outright liesThis year’s Glastonbury, I assumed beforehand, would have little to distinguish it. If anything, it looked like it would be remarkable for being so unremarkable. After a run of a fair few years in which the festival hosted attention-grabbing, controversy-courting and genuinely exciting performers – ...
