‘I was able to meet my idol’: a B7s ambassador on meeting Haskell & other perks

How did you find the Ambassador Programme?

The ambassador programme was easy to sign up to and well run throughout the lead up to the festival with clear guidance and quick help if needed from the guys running the programme!

Favourite reward?

For me the best reward I earned was the chance to go backstage to meet James Haskell who has been an idol of mine since I can remember. I will remember it for a very long time. Not only that but I earned enough points to gift my brother and his friends tickets and when I saw them having the best weekend and enjoying the festival I was happy that I could make that happen with my reward points!

How did you feel when you met Haskell?

When Haskell was released as a special guest DJ at the festival I was excited but the opportunity to actually meet him was incredible. Like most rugby players he was a very nice, genuine and down to earth guy which was a bonus because some people say that idols never live up to your perception but he definitely did. If you ask anyone who I was at the festival with in the lead up to meeting him I was constantly checking the time to make sure I was in the right place at the right time, it was so exciting. Then when we finally met and I stopped acting like a Justin Bieber fan girl he was talkative, took photos and really helped to make that a very special memory for me!

Would you recommend the Ambassador Programme?

I would 100% recommend the ambassador programme for anyone, no matter how big or small your social media following, it’s so easy to do and such an easy way of being rewarded as well! I will definitely be signing up this year!

How did you find B7s 2019?

B7s is for certain the best weekend of the year and 2019 was no different. This year especially, for me, was incredible because I had a huge group of friends that came for the first time due to me being an ambassador, I was able to meet my idol and also as an ambassador I felt a real sense of ownership and felt like a part of the festival this year which only made the weekend better! I love B7s and I wish it was every weekend!
