    I'm gonna try out and do some marketing while at music festival... what offer should i implement with my method? spread those 2D barcode squares around and people who know what it is, they scan it with their phone and goes to my offer link?

    Now i need to know which offer to use.... niche.

    I'm going off to the festival in 2 hours so i'm waiting for ideas.

    Poker offers would work as people who plays online poker is around the age demographic which goes to rock concerts aswell.

    Get a website, print business cards, bring in customers / other. I do event photography and hand out my cards at the events, about half of my traffic alone comes from that. (I usually bring 500 cards to an event)

    i realize it's an older post, but for future reference:

    offer yourself for hot chicks :)

    jokes aside, you can try "which is your fav band" surveys, itunes giftcards

    i go to several music festivals every year and if i can remember well, i'm not in the mood to fill out offers, so anything other which requires more than typing an email address is a no go

    most people are drunk and their preferences are: 1. booze 2. chicks/guys 3. music, not in this particular order

    how do you want to approach the people? set up a stand? it would be a bad idea without permit, you'll be kicked out from the festival sooner than you'll realize
    handing out flyers with your poker offer? most people throw those away, this could be tiresome and inefficient

    however there are 10 thousands of people on these concerts, maybe you can try out a bluetooth sms spamming software
    the sms could be about offering free credits to their pay pass card in exchange of their email address or other easy data submit
    in Hungary you can't pay with cash on the main events, you either need to have a pay pass mastercard or you get a simple plastic card with the ticket which you need to load with credits using cash or cc
    only downside: you'll have a hard time to find an international email submit offer, so if it's not an US event, try to offer something else

    last but not least, don't forget to enjoy the event :)
