YouTube 360° Mini Gig at Soho House Festival 2017
Set within the stunning grounds of English Heritage site Marble Hill House in Richmond, Soho House’s annual music and food extravaganza, House Festival is a feast for all your senses. Official festival sponsor YouTube prides itself on bringing people together to create, discover and share content and that ethos is part of the fabric that makes House Festival an unforgettable event. We collaborated with experiential marketing agency Slice to create a unique 360° experience for YouTube in an intimate woodland area of the festival.
The YouTube mini gig activation included seamless 360° high resolution videos uploaded in real time to a dedicated YouTube channel and subsequently shared with participants.

The 360° activation for YouTube was designed to offer visitors an opportunity to have their moment on stage by dancing and sing along to their favourite artist performing at House Festival. The tracklist included classics from Craig David, Erasure and emerging artists Rag’n’Bone Man and Dua Lipa. The entire experience is brought together through an enticing set design, branded graphic overlays, video effects and a photo opportunity designed to capture the surroundings of the festival.
The result was captivating content that visitors could share instantly from YouTube to their social media channels. YouTube’s 360 mini gig experience at House Festival follows a list of big brands including Estee Lauder, Brit Awards, BAFTAs and MTV that have created their own unique activations with our 360° video booth.
