Congratulations to Firefly!

 

Congratulations from all of us at SocialLadder to Firefly Music Festival for winning first place in the “Best Community Engagement + Relationship with Fans” category of the XLIVE FESTX AWARDS 2017!

 

What are the XLIVE FESTX awards? The Everfest-XLIVE FESTX awards were created in 2016 to recognize achievement in festival organization. The XLIVE awards bring together festival innovators and producers, as well as other important people behind the festival scenes. By having categories like “Best Food Festival” and “Best Fan Community,” these awards recognize different festivals and genres across the nation and their hard-earned accomplishments.

Firefly, produced by Red Frog Events and Goldenvoice, is a music festival that people from all over the world travel to attend. For the past two festivals, Firefly fans on SocialLadder were able to share selfies of their festival fashion, answer quizzes about the lineup, and get their friends to buy tickets in exchange for earning rewards like tickets, merchandise, and exclusive experiences at the festival.

SocialLadder is incredibly proud to take part in the Firefly Festival process, and we’re glad to help facilitate the relationship between the festival and its fans that makes Firefly such an awesome experience year in and year out. Congratulations from us to them for all of their hard work and success!

SocialLadder Ambassador Spotlight: Aaron Corbett

 

Aaron is one of the top Ambassadors for Lights All Night 2017, and he recently became the first SocialLadder ambassador to earn 1,000,000 challenge points! We got the chance to catch up with Aaron and hear some of his thoughts on his experience as a top-ranking ambassador.


So, Aaron – tell us about yourself!

“I️ love festivals, obviously! I️ spend a good portion of my time and money on them, mainly because I always seem to have an awesome time when I attend them. The music, the people, the vibes –  they’re just awesome! In my free time, I️ enjoy working on cars!


What has been your best festival experience?

Best festival experience was falling in love with dubstep at Lost Lands this year.

 

What is the best part of being an ambassador?

“The best part of being an ambassador is getting a chance to be a part of the festival – not just being an attendee, but helping make the festival what it is!”

 

What are some tips you have for people starting up and want to sell more tickets?

“When talking to people about the festival, just explain why you want to go and why you’re excited about it. that’s the easiest way to promote because people will want to go if they can tell you’re excited about it!”

Pulling down the top score for multiple festivals from Mad Decent to EZoo led Vince to his feature as this week’s Spotlight Ambassador. We got the chance to catch up with Vince and hear some of his thoughts on his experience as a top-ranking ambassador.


What has been your best festival experience?

“As a Mysteryland vet, I would have to say the KYGO set at sunset in 2015. Once in a lifetime experience.”

 

What is the best part of being an ambassador?

“The best part of being an ambassador is the community and all of the amazing people you meet. You can go to a festival alone and leave feeling like a part of a family.”

 

What are some tips you have for people starting up and want to sell more tickets?

“You have to be dedicated. You can’t start out strong and forget about it for a few days – you have to be dedicated and consistent. Gaining a social media following and showing the world how amazing these festivals are helps too!”

So there you have it – Vince is in it for the love of the music, and the community that shares that love at festivals across the country. Don’t forget to follow Vince’s Instagram account over at @Festival_discounts!
