Duplo Summer Festival
14th - 15th June: Duplo International, Addlestone, Surrey, UK
Missed out on Glastonbury tickets? Can’t make the Isle of Wight Festival? Duplo has just the answer. The print finishing pioneer is staging its own two-day festival on June 14 and 15 and has kindly invited Vivid to be one the main festival sponsors.
The "Celebration of Creativity in Print" will see the back of Duplo’s Addlestone, Surrey-based head office and warehouse transformed into a festival field, with a full-blown stage, comedy tent, bar and festival-style food concessions.
Homegrown talent will take to the stage from midday until 10pm on the first day, with further performances from midday to 4pm the next. Music will be performed by the great and the good from the industry, including Vivid's Marketing Communications Manager David Smith and his band The Zufflers. The full line-up can be found on the Duplo Fest website.
Vivid will be showcasing its Matrix Digital Foiling & Laminating Systems during the festival. The award-winning systems can produce foiling, holographic & spot UV-style effects used for all kinds of packaging, business cards, stationery, book covers, security print, wedding stationery and high end bespoke print, quickly and cost-effectively.
One field will be dedicated to Duplo’s headline-making systems – including a special guest who will be revealed at the event – along with the creative solutions of other event partners at Renz, Friedheim International and Infigo Software.
“My vision is to create a uniquely different event for our industry; a chance to celebrate print in the sun, listening to music from some of the industry’s best talent," said Peter Jolly, UK Marketing Director. "Doing another open house would have been easy but we wanted to have some fun and bring people together to celebrate print. The talent taking to the stage will shine alongside our range of print finishing solutions that will be putting on their own show-stealing sets."
Duplo Summer Festival 2017 attendees will be encouraged to join in the fun, put on their best festival attire, and enjoy the themed food and drink on offer.
