Vital countdown is on

THE countdown is on to Tennent’s Vital 2012! With just a few weeks to go until Northern Ireland’s premier music event of the year, Tennent’s Lager can reveal some exciting new activity that will make fans festival experiences even more unforgettable.

At the end of last year’s festival, we polled fans to find out what they wanted to see more of this year. We’ve taken their feedback on board and as a big thank you to fans for helping make the festival the huge success it is, Tennent’s: Vital Acts of Kindness will be spreading a little festival joy throughout the two days.

Tennent’s: Vital Acts of Kindness gives Tennent’s Vital ticket holders the chance to win some unique prizes and fantastic experiences on site at this year’s festival.

As our first Tennent’s: Vital Act of Kindness, we’re introducing the Tennent’s Bar, where fans can have a seat and enjoy a pint in between sets from this year’s incredible line up.

The Tennent’s Bar is open to all ticket holders of Tennent’s Vital but our facebook friends can reserve a table at a specified time, where the first pint of ice cold Tennent’s will be on us! They’ll enjoy comfy seats and waiter service and can sit back, relax with their friends and enjoy some amazing in bar entertainment.

Everyone who comes into the bar will have the chance to win exclusive prizes from the Tennent’s: Vital Acts of Kindness team. The team will also be roaming the festival giving fans the chance to win some amazing on site experiences and exclusive prizes. We’ll be revealing more details of how fans can get their hands on these prizes closer to the festival.
