Channel 4 will be using on air and social channels to drive viewers to and music fans can follow @C4HouseParty’s tweets throughout the build-up to the event and live on the night.

“We’re very excited to be hosting this much anticipated Red Bull event on giving viewers unprecedented access to the sell out night online, as it happens, through our live streams – and a quick turnaround ad capturing the excitement of the night road-blocked across Channel 4 for TV viewers,” says Danny Peace, Agency Principal at Channel 4. “Throughout this partnership Channel 4 Sales have worked creatively with Red Bull, leveraging our brand, to deliver a truly bespoke engaging campaign experience.”
