Grolsch and Concert at SEA sign joint venture agreement for three years

Beer brewer Grolsch and BLØF, the organiser of the Concert at SEA Festival, have signed a sponsor agreement for a period of three years. With this, Grolsch will be the exclusive beer and liquor supplier for the next three editions of Concert at SEA. Grolsch, as well as BLØF, are very happy with their cooperation of the past year and would like to keep it going.

So, this year as well, the public will be able to enjoy a nice glass of Grolsch beer throughout the entire festival. Grolsch will be prominently present at the festival with the ‘claps bar'. "After the immense success of last year, we wanted more. We wanted to continue on with our cooperation with this unique festival with the best view in The Netherlands. The typical character of the Concert at SEA Festival suits the Grolsch brand very well. Therefore, Concert at SEA is a perfect platform for Grolsch to present itself to thousands of festival lovers," says Jan Nales, Marketing Director of Grolsch.

Lesley Grieten, Festival Director of Concert at SEA: "The past year we've enjoyed a great cooperation with Grolsch and the feedback from our visitors has been very positive. We are thrilled to have Grolsch' expertise, experience and of course flavour at our disposal in the coming years!"

The Concert at SEA Festival will take place on June 17th and 18th at the Brouwersdam in Renesse, Zeeland. The pop festival has been organised since 2006 by the band BLØF and started as a one day festival. Since 2008, the festival lasts more than one day. As usual there are some big names in the line-up: Anouk, De Dijk, Ilse DeLange, The Baseballs, Racoon, Di-Rect, Jacqueline Govaert, Go Back To The Zoo, and of course BLØF. The day tickets for the Saturday have already sold out and it looks like the entire festival will be sold out.
