Heineken and Formula 1 (F1) have announced the launch of "Sounds Like Good Times With F1," a new collaborative campaign designed to celebrate their partnership ahead of the Formula 1 Rolex Australian Grand Prix 2024.

Led by creative agency Saatchi & Saatchi Australia, the campaign aims to evoke the thrill of F1 races through eye-catching out-of-home (OOH) signages and billboards.

Known for pairing well with noise, Heineken showcases the synergy of its brand with iconic sounds by building on similarities between the sound of cars, the buzz in bars and the word "beer" — all of which "sound like good times." 

A Campaign Built on Sound

The alcoholic beverage giant also released a 15-second spot that captures the sound and spirit of a Heineken-F1 combo.

Heineken's other efforts include a 360 audio experience on Spotify, as well as an engaging social media campaign that offers fans tickets to F1's sold-out Grand Prix 2024.

Saatchi & Saatchi Australia Creative Director Carlo Mazzarella also shared his insights into the campaign's development.

"Being from Melbourne, it's hard not to notice the sounds of the F1 when March arrives." 

"So our aim was simple: to create a campaign that makes Heineken synonymous with the sounds of the F1 in a fun and engaging way,” he further explained.

Meanwhile, Dino Bozzone, country manager of Heineken, expressed excitement about the brand campaign.

"Sound is such a critical part of the immersive experience at the Formula 1. Without the sounds of the engines roaring, crowds cheering and bars buzzing, this event wouldn’t be the one we all know and love."

"We look forward to seeing fans come together and celebrate the good times with their mates over this weekend, with a Heineken or Heineken 0.0 in hand at the F1,” he added.

Heineken also launched a campaign last month that celebrates real football fans.
