Scandic and Live Nation first joined forces in 2011 to offer hotel guests in Sweden access to all-in-one packages pairing hotel accommodations with tickets to live events and dinner reservations. The companies’ new partnership expands this offering to the entire Nordic region, with a focus on giving the Scandic Friends members access to Live Nation’s most in-demand events throughout Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland.
Starting in 2018, Scandic Friends members will enjoy access to Live Nation concert tickets, VIP events hosted at Scandic hotels, entry to exclusive sound checks at select shows and even special backstage meet and greet events with artists. Fans can expect more unique activations such as the “official fan hotel” that Grand Central by Scandic created with Live Nation to celebrate the premiere of Depeche Mode’s world tour in Stockholm earlier this year.
– Scandic and Live Nation are the perfect match when it comes to offering all-in-one events and accommodations. Now we have the chance to extend this to include experiences above and beyond the ordinary – things that many fans and leisure travelers haven’t been able to access before, says Alvin Argus, Director Partners at Scandic Hotels.
– Fans are more than willing to travel to catch their favorite artists in concert. We’re excited to team up with Scandic to provide fans in the Nordics with experiences specially curated to help them enjoy more live music, says Therése Liljedahl, Director Marketing & Nordic Partnership at Live Nation.
