McDonald’s is investing in experiential marketing. The QSR chain will host a free, 10-city concert tour featuring emerging recording artists performing in select McDonald’s parking lots.
Consumers can view the concerts, check the tour schedule and buy concert T-shirts at McDLive. Fans can also can vote for their favorite artists. The musician or group with the most fan votes at the end of the tour will be featured in a McDonald’s advertising campaign next year.
McDonald’s is partnering with Yahoo Music and MTV on this program.

About David Burn

Co-founder and editor of AdPulp. I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. I worked for seven agencies in five states before launching my own practice in 2009. Today, I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
