The festivities didn’t end when the main acts left the stage at this year’s Coachella. And it’s for this reason, that the after-parties are such a significant part of the weekend. Although not officially part of the Coachella calendar, these events have now become, in some cases, even bigger than the festival itself, and food and drink brands are clamoring to be a part of it and get their product in front of the biggest names in the industry. From the world’s biggest burger chains to emerging beverage startups, Coachella weekend saw a range of different exciting brands pull out all the stops to take to the culinary stage at the after parties.

Republic Records were undoubtedly the biggest provider of big name performers at Coachella, and the record label threw a Coachella party that matched that magnitude, hosting a lavish event at one of the most exclusive estates in the region. Guests at the weekend's most-talked-about soiree partied around a man-made beach at a private mansion, with world renowned DJ, Martin Solveig took to the decks to entertain the crowds, accompanied by Alma taking to the mic for a special performance. Whispering Angel served the rosé, an elegantly fitting pairing against the stunning white sands and blue waters. For the wine brand, it was a picture perfect opportunity to bring their crisp, refreshing rosé to the Californian heat, and to cool down celebrities like Darren Criss and Victoria Justice at their waterfront cabanas in style.

My Mo Mochi provided a spectacular mocha ice cream bar. Guests nibbled on ice cream in a variety of flavors from its My/Mo Mochi Bar, in another completely perfect and novel pairing with the scorching hot weather. Food trucks from local Palm Springs-based F10 Catering served elevated street food, from carnitas tacos to more poke bowl.

Another prime ticket event of weekend, Neon Carnival, also drew in the big names holding its ninth carnival style after party on the Saturday night. The creation of famed LA nightlife maven Brent Bolthouse, the event replicated a brightly colored carnival with amusement park rides and games entertaining guests. Celebrities – including Leonardo Di Caprio and Blake Griffin – sipped on Don Julio 1942, the brand being a major sponsor of the celebration. Don Julio’s Airstream Speakeasy served guests specialty Palomas, kickstarting the main stage musical acts.

Elsewhere in the Valley, Combsfest, hosted by Puff Daddy and his sons, saw celebrities partying the nights away with a plethora of different beverage brands at their disposal. The star studded line up were treated to a selection of drinks from Ciroc Vodka, DeLeón Tequila, Bumbu crafted rum, Luc Belaire Rare Rosé, and Red Bull. Relative newcomer to the drinks scene, DetoxWater, also made an appearance, with the unique beverage making waves in Hollywood, helping many get through the intense weekend.

There’s no question that Coachella is an exceptional platform for marketers and brands, with all eyes on not only what celebrities were wearing, but what they were eating and drinking as well. The annual festival in the desert has gone from a celebration of music and art to becoming an opportunity to showcase the finest food and drink. And as we’ve seen this year, advertisers will pull out all the stops to create the most engaging and memorable experiences for their brands, with the bar only continuing to be set higher and higher. The rest of us will need to "settle" for the best of the festival's food and beverage options.


Sexual harassment is rampant at Coachella 2018, report says

Music fans celebrated the first weekend of the 2018 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival as the occasion when pregnant Cardi B twerked and Beyonce once again proved she’s one of the greatest entertainers who ever lived.

But there was an unfortunate undercurrent to all this music magic last weekend. According to Teen Vogue, sexual harassment at the event is rampant. A writer for the outlet described being repeatedly groped and pressed for sex during the total 10-hour period she spent at the festival reporting her story.

The writer, Vera Papisova, also interviewed 54 women who shared similar accounts of predatory behavior.

“Of course sexual harassment happens here,” a 19-year-old woman named Ana told Teen Vogue. “It happens to us at all concerts. At Coachella it is so many people that men will get away with touching you, and they think we don’t notice. It happened to me many times already, and I notice every time.”

So, at the concerts and extravagant poolside parties and in the VIP tents filled with celebrities like Kylie Jenner, Leonardo DiCaprio and his latest model girlfriend, women were getting pinched, prodded and aggressively propositioned.

“On Saturday, I was front row at the Outdoor Theatre, leaning against the metal grate to take an epic photo of David Byrne to send to my dad,” Papisova wrote. “Someone behind me grabbed my butt with both hands. I didn’t see who it was, and I felt so uncomfortable that I gave up my front row spot and moved to the back of the crowd where I would have more space behind me. I never got the picture.”

Papisova noted that sexual misconduct is a common experience at concerts and music festivals, with a 2016 survey finding that that more than 90 percent of female concertgoers said they had been harassed at a music event.

In 2015, a photo went viral of a man at Coachella wearing an “Eat, Sleep, Rape, Repeat” shirt. Jemayel Khawaja, a writer for Vice’s Thump music channel, shot the photo, tweeting that he’s not easy to offend but that he found the shirt beyond offensive. A Vice colleague of Khawaja’s called the image of the man, wearing the shirt, grinning and “looking thoroughly satisfied with himself,” a “nauseating celebration of rape culture.”

Papisova said there are nonprofit groups and a few festival collaborators that are trying to address a culture that gives license to sexual harassment at music festivals and clubs. They include two Chicago nonprofits that launched the OurMusicOurBody anti-harassment campaign, which prompted Lollapalooza to publicize its policy on sexual harassment.

But Papisova wrote, “The overall culture still has a long way to go. Music festivals are meant to be spaces for people to relax, make new friends, and enjoy music, but the harsh reality is that many people attend with the expectation that they will not be safe in these environments.”
