Split into three acts; each concert will feature a lineup of secret artists curated by Sofar that reveal their identity when the show starts. The concerts will take place February-March 2018 in Milan, Barcelona, Paris, Warsaw and Hamburg.
A shared musical connection
countries and cultures together. "We are happy to have a partner that believes in the power of music and shares our values,” explains Sofar Sounds co-founder Rafe Offer. "With 'Sofar by Firestone’, we continue to create welcoming spaces that invite communities to experience the magic of live music.”
Firestone has been bringing people together through music since 1928 when founder Harvey Firestone launched the first sponsored radio programme, the Voice of Firestone. An innovative music platform for its time, similar to Sofar Sounds today, the Voice of Firestone brought people of all ages together to discover new music and enjoy live performances.
"At Firestone, we remain faithful to our founder's legacy by developing quality and reliable tyres for more than a century but also by supporting authentic, year-round music experiences,” explains Thierry Jupsin, Brands Marketing Director. “These live music events range from big-name festivals on the Firestone Music Tour to local talent shows and grassroots events like Sofar Sounds.”
