About the event
Event History and Information
One Koast Entertainment is a Baltimore-based business that focuses on the growth and development of Maryland musicians and our cultural music scene as a whole. While other promotion companies exist in the region, we are unique in our mission to support the growth and development of homegrown musicians. Our business is primarily based in Maryland; we have also had a long track record of successfully helping our local acts tour nationally and expand the reach of their music. We have booked over 5,000 shows in 43 states since 2011. These shows were filled by acts such as Pasadena, Bumpin Uglies, Bond & Bentley, Sweet Leda, and The Grilled Lincolns, to name a few.
We run an annual event in downtown Baltimore every February called Frozen Harbor Music Festival. We are going into the 6th year of this exciting event, and it is consistently growing in fan attendance and venue involvement. In its early years, this event took place only in Rams Head Live and operated under a different name. Over the past several years, Frozen Harbor Music Festival has expanded to include all of Power Plant Live! and Baltimore Soundstage.
We have multiple sponsorship levels available, but are just offering one Diamond Sponsorship Level. The Diamond Sponsorship Level is $10,000 and includes the following benefits for you as a sponsor:
- Company name in first position on all artwork OR all artwork will all say “Powered by __________" directly under Frozen Harbor logo
- Logo on all artwork in sponsorship area directly next to our logo
- Logo on all digital and print art
- Sponsor will be mentioned in any and all radio ads
- Sponsor will be mentioned anytime the event is digitally posted or physically printed
- Promo/Merch table in as many rooms as you choose*
- Lanyards and wristbands and any other promo you want to give fans via our POS areas**
- 20 Free passes to the event - on top of onsite staff
We also have bronze, silver, and gold sponsorship options ranging from $1,000-$5,000.
Why should you sponsor?
Frozen Harbor Music Festival has had a positive impact on the downtown area during one of the slowest weekends of the year, generating over $1,000,000 in economic impact to the district. This revenue benefits everyone involved, including janitors, bartenders, restaurants, hotel staff, cab/Lyft/Uber drivers, and many others who work in and around the downtown region!
Our reason for reaching out to corporate sponsors this year is that we need your financial support to help Frozen Harbor Music Festival to continue to grow into its max potential. SXSW in Austin, TX relies on sponsorship from major brands and corporations. Without this funding, SXSW would not have grown into the largest music and arts event in the world. The positive impact on the city of Austin measures as high as 100 million dollars during the festival’s two-week run. While we know that we are nowhere near that level, we believe that we can be with help from those who believe in Baltimore and want to see its continued growth as a prime tourism spot on the East Coast.
One Koast Entertainment is looking for a monetary sponsorship, and where appropriate, a donation of merchandise to add to our gift bags for some of our more notable performers. Our plan for using these donations is as follows:
1. Increased advertising budgets
2. Funding to attract larger national bands
3. Increased overall staffing and hospitality
With increases in these three areas, we will be able to considerably impact the growth of this event for 2019, and more importantly, the future growth of Frozen Harbor Music Festival. Please take time to consider this opportunity to help support our local musicians and our great city of Baltimore.
My name is Christine Marconi and I am the Associate Director of Marketing and Sales for One Koast Entertainment, based out of Baltimore, Maryland. I am working side by side with Frank Lewis (Partner, Artist Management, Operations, Production) to obtain sponsors for Frozen Harbor Music Festival for 2019 and in the coming years.
I have a long history with One Koast Entertainment and Frozen Harbor Music Festival as both a fan and friend, and because of my belief in the organization and this exciting event, I joined the team this year to assist with marketing and sales.
Outside of my work with One Koast Entertainment, I work full time in student engagement in higher education, and have a Master of Science in Higher Education from Drexel University.
