We supported SOHO Live with the announcement of the 2024 Festival of Seasons orchestral tour
SOHO Live approached us to promote their 2024 Stardew Valley: Festival of Seasons tour, announcing the initial release of tickets in October 2023 and the new dates due to overwhelming demand in November 2023.
We leaned into the goodwill the Stardew Valley property has with both games media and gamers and used both campaigns to highlight that Festival of Seasons was the largest dedicated concert tour for an independent video game IP on record.
Our outreach across both phases saw us secure news coverage from major outlets such as Gamespot, PC Gamer, Polygon, and Rock, Paper Shotgun. We also managed to place interviews with NME and IGN, who quizzed Stardew Valley creator Eric Barone (ConcernedApe) on his thoughts regarding the tour.
