Music streaming player Pandora has launched its first custom client event in Sydney, with award-winning German folk outfit Milky Chance performing for 200 Pandora listeners at the exclusive event sponsored by Set for Life.

The ‘Sunset Sessions’ event, held in May, was the first in an ongoing series that Pandora will host this year in conjunction with Universal Music Australia. The partnership will see Pandora use its audience data to unearth trending artists who appeal to Millennial listeners, while also providing advertisers with a unique sponsorship experience.

Pandora’s sales director for Queensland and NSW, Fiona Roberts, said Sunset Sessions give advertising partners the opportunity to engage with the difficult-to-reach Millennial audience through their passion point of music in an exclusive and intimate environment.

“Music is an incredibly powerful mechanic to deliver meaningful engagement with a highly influential audience, and our first event was a roaring success,” she said.

Roddy Campbell, managing director of new business at Universal Music Australia, said: “We loved working with Pandora, The Lott, our production agency, BRING, and of course, Milky Chance, to create a memorable experience for fans.

“The Sunset Sessions caters perfectly to what the Millennial audience is looking for and should provide a great vehicle for sponsors wanting to make a lasting impression.”

Kirsten Read, brand portfolio manager at The Lott, said: “This style of event was a perfect way for us to engage with a younger audience in a ‘money can’t buy’ experience.

“The audience was thrilled to get the chance to see Milky Chance in such an intimate environment. In the first event of its type for Set for Life, it has exceeded our expectations and is a clever way to use the power of Pandora’s audience data to reach the right people.”

Pandora launched a number of owned live events across 2016, with seven Pandora Sessions showcasing Australian talent including Urthboy and The Jezabels, and the inaugural Pandora Warehouse in October headlined by Seth Sentry and sponsored by Holden.

Furthermore, Pandora partnered with Rolling Stone Australia to launch Rolling Stone Radio in April and created the launch event for 200 VIP guests with an exclusive performance from award-winning Vintage Trouble.

Pandora has also launched custom events in New Zealand, partnering with FCB Media and L’Oréal to launch its new hair colouring product, Colorista, with an exclusive performance from up and coming Kiwi artists SACHI.
