I’ve noticed a few people mentioning The Dukesbox in the comments below as one of their Picnic highlights, which is cool to see. I bumped into two very unhappy Dukes when I was wandering around the site on Friday afternoon. They were worried about the fact their little van was parked so far from the action and that they had no power. Obviously, all that changed for the better over the weekend.

They also told me some very interesting tales about how much certain brands were shelling out to get involved with UK festivals (Braun’s 50k to plaster their logo on one skate ramp at some fest outside Bath which I’d never heard of before). As we have seen with the Picnic this year, festivals have become big days out for corporate brands.

Anyway, behold the Dukesbox!
