Top Coachella Brand Activations

Posted by Brandon Pike on December 4, 2020 at 6:15 AM

Coachella Is More Than Just A Music Festival

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, held at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, is arguably the most popular music festival today. Held every year, well before the COVID-19 pandemic shut down the world, Coachella was a getaway for music lovers, artists, and celebrities, alike. For two three-day weekends, attendees are able to escape reality and transported into the world of music.  

Many people think of Coachella as just a music festival, but from a marketers standpoint, Coachella is a goldmine when it comes to opportunities to increase brand awareness. According to Insider, in 2019, Coachella had an attendance of 99,000 people per day, and a total of 594,000 people for both weekends.  With the right amount of money and strategy, brands are able to capitalize on this heavily publicized event. In this blog, Hollywood Branded shares three brands who have used Coachella for successful activation and marketing campaigns.

The Transition From Podcasts To The Big Screen

Posted by Juliette Roberts on November 27, 2020 at 6:15 AM

The Growth of Podcasts

The rise of podcasts has grown immensely and 2020 is no short of high listener rates because the pandemic has skyrocketed numbers even more. People love podcasts due to the easy on the go accessibility and in March 2020, it was recorded that 104 million Americans listen to podcasts daily, which is probably even more by now.

On September 24th of this year, Spotify (who, despite being a music streaming platform, have an array of podcasts and boast 21% of all users utilizing the app solely for podcasts) and Chernin Entertainment Group announced a multiyear first look partnership, where Chernin Entertainment will be able to choose from the 250 original podcasts on Spotify and repurpose into other forms of media, like film and TV shows. In this blog, Hollywood Branded will discuss how platforms like Spotify are transitioning to the big screen and show examples of some popular podcasts have turned to shows today.
