Giving a cannabis brand with strong roots the key to an exciting experience.

The Challenge

Happy Valley is a growing premium cannabis brand based in Greater Boston, and 2022 was the first time cannabis brands were allowed to advertise at festivals. Our job was to raise their profile, amplify their “Unlock your experience” branding, and create an engaging presence at Boston’s biggest music festivals, Boston Calling and Levitate.

The Insight

Embrace the experience. Happy Valley’s tag line and positioning is “Unlock your experience”, and the best way to unlock any experience is to join in the festivities. Just like the artists onstage, Happy Valley needed to feel like part of the Boston Calling and Levitate lineups.

The Solution

To give the Happy Valley presence an exclusive feel, we created a complete Green Room experience. We built the footprint from scratch and brought some fun to the show with a mobile scavenger hunt. Concertgoers could enjoy a one-of-a-kind space that felt right at home at both Boston Calling and Levitate. Then there was the finishing touch.

We got to work creating gig posters that would give concertgoers a lifelong reminder of the experience that Happy Valley unlocked. The posters lined the walls of the green rooms gave cannabis users and music fans alike a glimpse at the Happy Valley experience—as well as a reminder they could take home.
