AdJam 2019 AdStock

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, October 2, 2019

AdJam: Adstock Like... wow. What a flashback. AdJam 2019 celebrated the songs and artists of Woodstock, and the vibe wasn't just for hippies. What a turnout! Creatives, execs, and even Accounting came together in sweet, sweet harmonies for a night of groovy, toe-tapping, jaw-dropping shreds from the very best L.A. agency bands. Let's give it up for the bands, who were all totally far out and certainly made the judges work! 

Congratulations to our winners Midnight Oil and Reprise Digital/UM! They went home with the coveted AdJam Axe again, courtesy of Fender Musical Instruments

Thank you so much to all who attended and cheered for their favorite rock stars!
