TuneTap, the exciting new music experience from Tennent’s that has let music fans become the DJ in their favourite bars since the start ofJuly, recently rolled out onto the streets of Belfast.
Bus stops in Belfast were fitted with specially made, built-in interactive speakers – which had never been used before in Northern Ireland – where you could choose what music you wanted to listen to while you waited for the bus!
Thanks to Tennent’s having the technology, the public could literally power the playlist of music through their smart phones. They just scanned the QR code that was beside the poster in the special bus shelters. It took them to www.tunetap.co.uk where they voted for their favourite tracks and shortly thereafter heard the song pumping out from the bus shelter while they waited.
The public have already been enjoying having control of the music in selected bars around Belfast. Union Street and The Washington Bar & Restaurant have joined the list of participating Belfast bars which also include: Filthy McNastys, The National, Cuckoo, Queens Student Union (The Speakeasy), The Errigle and The Whitefort.
Sarah Shimmons, the Beer Marketing Manager from Tennent’s NI, said; “As well as the appreciation of music fans who used the bus stops we also heard reports of heads turning as people passed by having heard the music coming from them…and the more curious amongst them went in to join in!”
“We’re always on the lookout for fun and engaging ways to communicate with consumers and Tennent’s TuneTap was the perfect activity to complement this year’s Tennent’s Vital music festival, which returns to the Boucher Road Playing Fields this August Bank Holiday weekend.”
