Coca Cola Soundfest

To create engagement with Vietnamese youth in 2012, Coca Cola decided to launch the biggest music festival in Vietnam.

Challenge

Coca Cola strives to remain relevant and connected to the Vietnamese youth. Music proved to be the key and Phibious in collaboration with Alive organized and brought to life a massive music event in Ho Chi Minh City entertaining more than 50,000 participants.

Strategy

It was found out that the way youth consumed music changed everyday from being passive listeners to music at home, to going to coffee shops for inspiration, tea house and performances as well. Phibious then pitched to Coca Cola a campaign to connect with the youth through a music festival.
