Influencers Have Slammed the Invite-only Revolve Festival at Coachella as a Failure.

Must read

Revolve’s annual festival is one of the most exclusive Coachella events for influencers. But some are comparing this year’s party to Fyre Fest after transportation issues left many people waiting for hours in the sun without water.

Clothing brand Revolve, the purveyor of influencer looks and music festival fashion, launched the invite-only party in 2015. Like Coachella, this year’s festival is the first live event since 2019 after a two-year hiatus during the coronavirus pandemic.

The event this year was held at the Merv Griffin Estate in La Quinta, California, just five minutes from the Coachella festival grounds.

Free drinks crafted with Kendall Jenner’s tequila brand, free cuisine from Erewhon, free shopping experiences at sponsored “gifting suites,” and performances by Post Malone, Jack Harlow, and Willow Smith were all part of the festivities. It also included great photo opportunities and a Venmo-sponsored pink carnival swing ride.

However, some of the invited influencers compared the “VIP” party to ill-planned events like Fyre Festival and TanaCon, which were hosted by YouTubers.

The only way to get into Revolve Festival was to take one of the offered shuttles from an empty parking lot approximately a mile and a half away from the Merv Griffin Estate.

Influencers grumbled about the transportation in TikTok videos and Instagram stories over the weekend, saying it was unorganized and ill-equipped for large crowds. Some claimed they waited in the blazing sun for hours without food or water.

“Influencers have a poor record for behaving arrogantly. “However, influencer status aside, many others were simply outdoors waiting in the heat for two or three hours without any water,” said creator Averie Bishop, who said she was invited but declined after waiting for the festival’s supplied shuttle for hours.

Bishop claimed she was promised $2,000 in free apparel in exchange for her invitation, but she claimed there was “confusion” regarding who was a VIP guest.

She stated that “quite few” buses were in rotation, and that VIP line guests were picked up more frequently than general admission line attendees.

When she got at the queue on Saturday, she estimated that there were at least 1,000 individuals in the crowd. ““Individuals from different lines began leaping gates, hopping into the road in front of vehicles, and forcing each other out of the way to get on one of the buses” when at least three buses drove by people waiting in the general admittance pool to pick up VIP invitees.

“As the situation intensified, my companion and I decided to simply go,” Bishop continued. “A security guard ran to obtain water since a girl was on the verge of passing out.”

Security was haphazard, according to Bishop, and “no Revolve administration appeared to be anywhere near the turmoil.”
