27 Of The Best Gig, Band, Event & Festival Posters

The value of posters in promoting a gig, band, event or festival (or anything, for that matter) should not be forgotten. I know we're living in the age of Social Media and that's not a bad thing, but we are still visual creatures and our eyes will be caught by things that appeal. With that understanding, posters are important.

I know we're living in the age of Social Media and that's not a bad thing, but we are still visual creatures and our eyes will be caught by things that appeal. With that understanding, posters are important.

When I say posters, I'd actually extend it to include flyers and, more generically speaking, graphics. After all, the visual identity for your event is likely to play a large part in your Social Media campaign anyway, with people sharing your event lineup poster etc.

So, with that in mind, and having come across a lot of fine examples recently, I said I'd put this little post together.

Let me know what you think in the comments section down below and feel free to share some more that you've seen.

Hi there! We don't really operate as Cuckoo Events any longer.

The majority of our work now is done as Safe Events. This website is still live as there are a LOT of resources on here - particularly in our Blog section - that people still access very regularly. If that's why you're here, carry on!

If you're looking to maybe speak with us about working with you on your event, then click below and come see us at Safe Events.
