A summer of festival fun is on the cards as online car marketplace cinch becomes new headline sponsor across Festival Republic’s Latitude, Creamfields, TRNSMT, Isle of Wight Festival and next year’s Edinburgh Summer Sessions
A summer of festival fun is on the cards as cinch, the UK’s fastest-growing online used car marketplace, today announces it has signed a multi-year deal with Live Nation UK to be Official Headline Partner across five of Britain’s best-loved music and entertainment festivals. The partnership marks the first time one brand has headlined across five Live Nation UK festivals.
The inspiration for the partnership stems from changes in consumer preferences over the past year, indicating the importance of seamless digital experiences in daily life combined with people's unparalleled desire to get out, explore and create new memories. The innovative e-commerce business will present entertainment, fun and faff-free festival experiences to people right across Britain with approximately one million fans anticipated to attend the five live music experiences which will see acts such as David Guetta, The Chemical Brothers and Snow Patrol take centre stage.
On top of fantastic faff free experiences at each festival, those lucky enough to win or receive a ticket from cinch to one this summer’s gigs will enjoy a birds-eye view of all the acts via a specially erected viewing platform. For those fans who can’t attend, cinch will be sharing highlights and behind-the-scenes action from this summer’s best showcases of music across its social channels. Launching with this year’s return of festivals, cinch becomes Official Headline Partner of:
- cinch presents Latitude, Henham Park, Suffolk, 22-25 July 2021, featuring Bastille, First Aid Kit, Snow Patrol Reworked and others;
- cinch presents Creamfields, Daresbury, 26-29 August, featuring The Chemical Brothers, Eric Prydz, Carl Cox, Armin van Buuren, Nina Kraviz, Pendulum Trinity, Tiesto, Camelphat and others;

Robert Bridge, cinch Chief Customer Officer, said: “Brits have foregone their summer festival experiences over the last year while we all worked as one to stay apart. Now it’s time to get together and have fun. cinch couldn’t be more excited to team up with Live Nation to help make possible the most memorable summer of music for years to come. We’re all about making life easier for motorists; letting them find and buy the used car that’s just right for them, completely online, and totally faff-free. So, it makes sense that we’ve got plenty of faff-free experiences and treats lined up for customers and ticketholders going to the festivals, as well as helping some lucky customers have the festival experience of a lifetime. For everyone who can’t be there, we’ll be backstage sharing exclusive content and behind-the-scenes action across all of our social channels.”
Jim Campling, President of Marketing Partnerships at Live Nation UK, said: “We are hugely excited about working with cinch across many of our UK festivals in 2021 and 2022. As a new and painless way of buying cars online, cinch's business is smartly addressing changes in consumer behaviour while delivering a physical product that empowers people to explore and create amazing memories. We're going to see a tremendous boom in domestic travel this summer and we’re all ready to hit the road again to create new memories together. Whether it’s getting to and from festivals, exploring a new part of the country or finding a new way to commute, cinch can provide our fans with a revitalised sense of independence and exploration via car ownership."
