The Honda Civic Tour was created in 2001, and since its inception, 3.5 million fans have attended Civic Tour concert events and the program has become one of the nation’s most compelling, successful music concert tour franchises. Concert goers have had the chance to experience their favorite bands up-close-and personal, including live and interactive performances by Maroon 5, Linkin Park, blink-182, The Black Eyed Peas, Paramore, Incubus, Fall Out Boy and many more. Each year, the Honda Civic Tour’s headlining artist customizes a Civic vehicle for one lucky tour fan to win.
In 2009, Honda began partnering with the biggest and brightest music festivals across the U.S., including Sasquatch, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits Music Festival and The Governors Ball in New York. The automaker’s festival activations have included a Honda-sponsored stage with performances by some of the festivals’ best artists, opportunities to win VIP tickets and Honda vehicles, interactive onsite vehicle displays and more.
