Coachella Festival Parties Galore

After two years, Coachella is back! A long awaited time by music fans, music artists, and brands everywhere.

At any event you never know who you'll see. Coachella Weekend 1 is full of surprises which makes it half the fun. In this blog, Hollywood Branded shares an inside look into Coachella 2022 parties and the brands that stood out.


Coachella 2022 Brand Activations At Parties


Brand Partnerships Left and Right

Coachella pre-parties and after-parties, especially during Weekend 1, are scattered with brands. Some brands have found this strategy so successful they even take part in more than one, like Revolve.

These events are phenomenal ways for brands to reach potential customers as people are able to try the product, ask any questions (which is great for building that relationship), and maybe make a few onsite purchases if the brand offers it.

According to the Promotional Products Association International's findings, "71.6% of attendees who received a promotional product remembered the name of the company that gave them the product. Additionally, 76.3% of attendees had a favorable attitude toward the company that gave them the product."

This is especially great for brands that have brand awareness as their main goal. 

For others that are looking more so to gain more purchases, the Product Sampling Study” by Arbitron and Edison Media Research, found 35% of customers who try a sample will buy the sampled product in the same shopping trip."

Depending on the party and how brands chooses to participate in, they can amplify their chances of being posted and tagged on social media and get more even more impressions!

That said, with 25+ parties happening this past weekend it was difficult to choose which ones to attend. Here are the ones that made the list and an inside look into the brands behind them.

Surrounding the importance of this event, Remezcla Managing Director Neylu Longoria commented, “Latin music is having a moment right now with its largest presence ever at major U.S. music festivals across the country. We’re celebrating this year’s surge in Latin artist bookings by bringing Remezcla House, our Latinx music and culture experiential series, to the Coachella Valley. With support from Pandora and Tecate, we hope that Remezcla House in the Desert will help shine a light on the diversity of Latin music culture, while creating a truly unforgettable weekend in the desert."

With drinks provided by Tecate, the vibes were going strong as they danced to the music and wander the space.

Through this special collaboration with Pandora, Remezcla will be developing a short documentary that goes beyond festival coverage and dives deeper into the growth, diversity, and cultural influence of Latin music.
 
It's exciting to see how Remenzcla, a Latin driven media company, and Pandora have formed a strong partnership to continue to uplift Latin artists. 
 
With Pandora's reach among music fans, this is a great opportunity for Remenzcla to grow, especially with Remenzcla's radio station on Pandora called Sonic Bloom.

Events Partnerships Get Impressions

Being partnered with big brands regardless if your brand is established or on the rise is always good for press.

For example, from a quick search on critical mention over, Hanjan Oasis reached an audience of about 114M people earning a publicity value of $77K in only this past week.

In contrast, a more notorious brand, such as Soho House's Soho Desert House had over $2.3B impressions and received a publicity value of $16.2B. 

When it comes to brand activations at events like these, most find success in product sampling or gifting. Some brands at these events gifted a specific product or sample and then had others on display for purchase.

Either way, brands are able to connect with potential consumers and get them excited to learn more!
