Hennessy have provided their support to the ‘Cognac Blues Passions Festival’ ever since its inception in the mid 90’s – over the last 2 years their evolvement has become greater and they are now ingrained in the history and lifeblood of the events production. The theory goes, the town is called Cognac and we produce Cognac, lets do this – a lot of major brandy houses have a stake in the festival due in no small part to the aforementioned namesake shared between their products and location – but non as prominent as Hennessy.
This year to celebrate the brandʼs endless dedication to music, culture and live performance, Hennessy is giving its Facebook fans a chance to perform at the Blues Passions festival 2012, giving all fans the opportunity to take their music from online to onstage. Fans can submit a video entry of their own performance to the ‘Be Heard. Be Found’. tab on the Hennessy Country Facebook page (From April 4th), submitting their music online for a chance to take their music to the Blues Passions festival stage.
The event itself has played host to some of the worlds most esteemed artist’s, such as Ray Charles, Massive Attack, Moby, Gil Scott Heron & B.B. King. A varied and often intriguingly unique festival, you can find out more info about 2012’s line up at bluespassions.com.
