Red Bull Taster

The Ambient Lounge (listed under the Music Festivals page of this website) proved so popular that Red Bull asked us to do a corporate version for them – but not so chilled.

Red Bull wanted to call it Saloon25 (their idea was that as the Lounge was a 24hour non-stop venue but that Red Bull gives you an extra hour in the day) and to give it a loosely Wild West theme.

Many of the acts were Ambient Lounge favourites. Photo: Liam Rich

It worked pretty well, so much so that Red Bull took the idea and and ran with it in the years following – as shown in the video below. We used the fee from Red Bull to support other GuilFin projects, so it all worked out well in the end.
