Digital communications stores O2 Rochdale and O2 Middleton are backing this summer’s Rochdale Feel Good Festival.
O2, based in Rochdale Exchange Shopping Centre and Middleton Shopping Centre, will be official festival partners, promoting the festival event to their customers across the region and having a presence at the festival.
All day O2 staff will be backstage, recording exclusive interviews with performers and sharing them on social media.
O2 ‘gurus’ will be about to give free tech tips to festival goers and will be exhibiting the very latest in virtual reality technology.
They’ll also be running a series of exciting competitions throughout the day with some spectacular prizes up for grabs. The deal also sees O2’s logo on festival marketing.
