Make Friends With BlackBerry This Summer!


Hey my fellow Canadian BlackBerry® peeps! While attending your favorite music festivals this summer across Canada, you might notice images like the one above scattered across the venue. You will likely also notice a tent filled with BlackBerry representatives demonstrating the latest BlackBerry® smartphones and generally spreading good cheer.

If you see a barcode like the one in the lower-right of the above image, make sure to scan it using BlackBerry® Messenger (BBM®)! Your new BBM friends will let you know how to skip the long show lines, access exclusive content for your favorite bands, and maybe even how to get free tickets, VIP passes or a Nissan Cube. Isn’t making friends fun?

Click the link below to find out even more places where you can make friends with BlackBerry this summer while checking out cool tunes. Those looking for more info can also check out – and be sure to visit the official BlackBerry Flickr account to see photos from the shows.

You will see BBM barcodes around venues and they will have BlackBerry representatives around. If you add a friend using the barcode you will be entered for VIP passes, tickets, and more. Check out the details on their blog or at or on their official blog […]
