Royseven wooed an intimate, invite only, crowd of just over 100 people with an incredible super charged performance at the HTC One Hot Press “intimate personal experience” gig at 4 Dame Lane on Wednesday 18th May. The invite only crowd included 12 aspiring photo journalists who filmed and photographed the gig on HTC One X handsets, specially invited guests and competition winners who won tickets to attend through Hot Press and on HTC Ireland’s Facebook page.
HTC launched a competition in association with Hot Press to find the HTC One Hot Press photojournalist, winning the opportunity to report and capture some of the best gigs this summer including Forbidden Fruit, Snow Patrol, Florence+Machine and Electric Picnic. Each gig review, photos and video will be published in Hot Press, on HotPress.com and HTC Ireland’s Facebook page.
Commenting on the event, Gavin Barrett, Country Manager of HTC Ireland said; “It has been great to work with one of Ireland’s most popular cutting edge bands and we are delighted to be able to record the proceedings on our HTC One Series handsets. Over 5000 people got in touch with us looking for a ticket so hopefully those who weren’t lucky enough to make the cut will get a chance to share some of the experience when we upload the work of our aspiring photojournalists to www.HotPress.com and www.facebook.com/htcie next week”.
The over all winners of the competition were Emilia Krysztofiak and Seán Conroy.
