Apr 11, 2018

From cultural appropriation to branded event, “festival fashion” sparks debates. To quote, Guardian journalist, Hadley Freeman, music festivals became “al fresco fashion shows” and an unsurprising opportunity to for publishers.

So what’s the value for publishers?

A new milestone was hit as Beyonce’s set became the most-viewed Coachella performance on the festival’s YouTube live stream. As such, the opportunity for publishers is to offer immersive experiences. Publishers are experimenting with such experiences to build stronger and lasting relationships with their audience.

Coachella is home of the young, well-off, fashion enthusiasts. Most importantly, this demographic is very active on social media and unsurprisingly, digital influencers now take up a considerable status in reaching new audiences.
