Our Samsung winners Kayla and Ashley got to work at the MMVAs!
Winning, ever wonder what your chances are? Believing you have a chance is worthwhile.
With a few simple clicks, I had entered and won an all-inclusive trip to the MMVAs in Toronto to “Work with the Crew”. Included was round trip flight for two, accommodations, car service, $500 cash, two Samsung GalaxyS5 phones, and crew wristbands.
The first day we toured the Much Headquarters, lounged on the rooftop patio, and watched Imagine Dragons during their soundcheck. Shortly after, we met with a Samsung representative and the Much Digital crew to map out our plan for the Samsung GS5 livestream cam. The livestream was one of six livestream cameras that were being used during the show.
MMVA day: we walked the red carpet and then we were quickly escorted directly behind the scenes. We waited on standby, and watched the red carpet arrivals from the backstage TV screens. During the show, we held the Samsung Galaxy S5 livestream camera, and walked from each stage to capture the performances from the fan and backstage perspectives.
When the show was over, we made our way to the Uncensored Lounge and media offices. There we saw many artists roaming around, we watched Marianas Trench and Ed Sheeran during their interviews.
We really felt like a part of the team and we learned how many hours of work goes into the two-hour show. It is incredible and eye-opening; our appreciation for the crew had grown immensely by the end of our weekend!
The night was still young and even though we had guestlist for an MMVA afterparty, we didn’t make it. We agreed it would be way more fun to party with the crew! The Arkells performed, and we danced the night away! Good times were had by all, and remember that one time that Ed Sheeran was…ah, what happens at the afterparty stays at the after-party 😉
Ashley and I are extremely grateful for this MMVA experience, and would like thank everyone at Bell Media and Samsung.
Kayla & Ashley

Brick and mortar vs. fields and flowers is an entirely different beast when it comes to festivals. It’s one thing to run free in the sun, but it’s another to UberHop around the city. Canadian Music Week has taken over downtown Toronto, and it’s every wristband-holder for themselves. Here are a few tips that should […]
