Coors Light is pleased to offer festival goers mountaintop aerial views, overlooking Burl’s Creek Event grounds in a hot air balloon. In addition, Coors Light presents their limited edition festival cans, which are the world’s first beer cans with sun activated ink technology. Now, not only can your Coors Light tell you when they are Cold Certified, but also when they are ‘Summer Certified’ with bold colour patterns that pop when the sunlight reaches them.

TOPSHOP and TOPMAN return this year with an immersive space comprising four themed rooms that deliver the ultimate social experience.

Renowned for partnering with up and coming artists, TOPSHOP and TOPMAN have collaborated with Kastor & Pollux, Trevor Wheatley Cosmo Dean, and Jason Voltaire to create four distinct and engaging rooms that bring key summer trends to life.

Each room will incorporate a unique mirror to reflect both the trend and artist’s style, all designed to provide festival attendees with the ultimate shareable image. Guests will be inspired to “see themselves differently” and share the moment with the world to further stimulate creativity and conversation. #SeeYourselfDifferently.

WayHome is thrilled to welcome back installations from artist duo Trevor Wheatley and Cosmo Dean to the festival, as well as the social media favourite flags from Angus Watt and Balloon Chain. Nathan Witford will light up the VIP area with an illuminating installation, and Toronto-based muralist birdO will be bringing his surreal geometric animals to Burl’s Creek
