Louisville, KY – This summer, Bud Light is making a commitment to bring fans closer to the music they love with the

introduction of “

Bud Light Music First

,” a program that will create and celebrate various music firsts. Bud Light Music

First will culminate on Thursday, Aug. 1, with “50/50/1,” a never-before-seen live music event that will see Bud Light

 

present one concert in each of the 50 states on a single day.

 

“Music is such a unique platform because it brings people together, yet everyone interacts with it on a personal level,” said

 

Rob McCarthy, vice president, Bud Light. “With Bud Light Music First, we have an amazing collection of artists and

 

partners that will make sure every adult fan can experience music in a fun, interesting way this summer.”

 

Fans can become part of the Music First experience by downloading the Bud Light Music First app, which is now available

 

through the Apple and Android app stores. The app will be music fans’ primary destination to score Bud Light Music First

 

prizes, including Monster DNA Headphones, Live Nation® Concert Cash®, Universal Music Group (UMG) music

 

downloads and 50/50/1 concert tickets throughout the summer. Adults can enter codes found in specially-marked

Bud Light has also partnered with Myspace to build an interactive home for the Music First program. The Bud Light Music

 

First Myspace hub, located at https://new.myspace.com/BudLightMusicFirst, offers fans a single destination on the newly

 

redesigned platform where they can receive updates on concerts, connect and listen to 50/50/1 artists and download the

interviews with artists who will each share stories about their own personal music firsts and livestream select 50/50/1

 

concerts on Aug. 1.

 

“We’re excited to partner with Bud Light as the Music First initiative gives fans the opportunity to connect to music on a

 

massive scale, tapping into Myspace’s platform as a destination for 50/50/1,” said Christian Parkes, global vice president

 

of marketing, Myspace. “Like Myspace, Bud Light shares the desire to create unique experiences in music and provide

 

fans greater access to their favorite artists.”
