Anyone up for a beer this weekend? You’re in luck! The annual Newcastle Beer Fest is taking place on Saturday and DiDi is partnering with the festival to ensure festival goers get to and from the event safely.

As the official rideshare partner of the Newcastle Beer Fest, DiDi is offering all festival attendees a safe and affordable ride option for Saturday’s festivities. So, leave the car at home – DiDi has you covered.

Saturday March 23rd is also DiDi’s third #DiDiDAY in Newcastle. On #DiDiDAYs, each DiDi rider in the Newcastle area automatically receives two $20 rides for free* as a celebratory promotion for the app’s recent launch in the city. Newcastle Beer Fest goers are encouraged to use these free rides for festival transportation on Saturday.

By providing festival goers with a better transportation option to safely travel to and from the venue site, DiDi hopes to eliminate the stress and planning that comes with parking and designated drivers, allowing the attendees to enjoy more of their day.

Starting at 11am, the Beer Fest will be kicking off all festivities including live music, delicious food, and (of course) BEER!

Whether you prefer a lager, ale or cider, the 35 different breweries at the festival will have all taste buds covered. Each stall will be serving their favourite brews while craftsmen describe the individual techniques that make each flavour just right.

By offering free rides, DiDi allows festival goers to leave the car at home, spend less, enjoy more and, most importantly, get home safely.

So, order a DiDi, grab a glass, and enjoy the good vibes and cold brews this weekend.
