I have a keen interest in Public Relations and after writing an essay on PR on the web I came across Splendid Communications. The company is totally modern and exciting and this shows through their contemporary website and fab social media awareness. I am so excited to have been offered a placement there this summer.

Splendid are a communications agency with offices in London, New York and Australia. Specialising in creating communications within brand strategy, PR, social media and event marketing. Splendid have successfully worked with clients such as Marmite, Smirnoff, MAC and Spotify, creating films, events and hype for the companies!

Some of Splendid‘s most memorable work is with Marmite. Not only did they persuade Simon Cowell to declare his love for it on TV but they also cleverly devised a campaign during the General Election featuring two  parties the “The Love Party” and “The Hate Party“. The campaign was posted over all media platforms and was a great success! I myself, support The Love Party!

Splendid have a big involvement with music and events and  won the 2010 Music Week Award for Best Music & Brand Partnership for Smirnoff’s Creative Grants music event programme. They also organise a four-day music experience in Seattle, Bumbershot Music USA!

Splendid work closely with Smirnoff Creative Grants and encourage promoters to apply by telling the inspiring story of  Radio 1 DJ and Bestival King Rob da Bank, check out the video…

Splendid are so good because they are so aware of how fast the world is moving. They have superb awareness of social media and post info and job vacancies on their very active Facebook page! I am so excited to work with such a modern and innovative company!


The Cure to Headline Bestival 2011

December 9, 2010 § Leave a comment

Organised by Radio 1 DJ Rob da Bank, the summer festival season saves it’s best ’til last and next year’s Bestival line-up is shaping up to be one of the best yet! Crowned in The Guinness Book of World Records as the biggest fancy dress party, next year Robin Hill Country Park on the Isle of Whight will be transformed into the weird and wonderful world of the Fantastic on 8th September 2011.

Having been in 2008 and 2009 (sacrificing 2010 for a trip to FIB festival in Spain) I can say Bestival is one that should not be missed! It’s  the quirkiest, friendliest arena with a huge range of stalls, foodieries and events! Fun and frivolity come rain for shine. The line ups aren’t bad either, in fact they’re amazing. With Massive Attack and The Prodigy headlining in 2009 and 2010 next year is not going to disappoint.

The Cure are one of the most influential groups of our time one of my favourite bands. The chance to see them live is unmissable. Accompanied by the likes of Primal Scream, Magnetic Man, Crystal Castles and one of my other faves 65daysofstatic who toured with The Cure on their 2008. Check out my review of one of their gig this year in Brighton.

Whether it be the burlesque cafe, Bollywood tent, cinema or healing tent Bestival has something for everyone! Stay tuned for further announcements on the line-up.
