TOP 5 Reasons to Partner with the Baton Rouge Blues Festival 

No. 1 - Reach an audience that prefers to spend on experiences

At the Baton Rouge Blues Festival you’ll find an audience traveling regionally, nationally and internationally to partake in the Baton Rouge Blues experience.

No. 2 - High-Dollar visibility for 501(c)(3) donation benefits

Why should we be a part of your advertising strategy? 2015 grabbed over 1,050,000 total impressions through local and regional print, digital and guerrilla advertising all for a tax-deductible donation.

No. 3 - Engage with fans not accessible through other regional festivals and music events

The Baton Rouge Blues Festival reaches an audience like no other event. Less than half of attendees participated in other Baton Rouge cultural events and less than 40% attended other regional music festivals with the exception of New Orleans Jazz and Heritage festival. The average Baton Rouge Blues Festival attendee is returning for the third time and 12% have attended for ten or more years!

No. 4 - Free festival means attendees have more to spend with YOU!

The Baton Rouge Blues Festival is one of the oldest free blues festivals in America. And while free admittance is one of the great reasons to attend, our festival-goers have a high median income and spent an average of $80+ per person on food, merchandise or both. Evident disposable income translates to new paying customers for your brand.

No. 5 - Community impact? Brand leverage?

The preservation of music and culture is something close to the heart of every community. The Baton Rouge Blues Festival is rooted in heritage, soul, and most of all a unique passion for the conservation of the blues culture. At the Baton Rouge Blues Festival you’ll find your brand at the center of a music and culture whirlwind where local and international music enthusiasts join legendary artists to bring the swamp blues culture to life. This gives your brand the opportunity to have a stake in the conservation and celebration of historically significant heritage that is deeply rooted in present day music and communities.
