LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AEG Presents and Postmates today announced an exclusive, multi-year partnership to bring Postmates Pickup to the nation’s largest music festivals starting with this April’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. The new skip-the-line service lets fans use the festival’s official mobile app to order food, beverages and festival merchandise for pick up in only a few minutes. AEG Presents will also launch Postmates Pickup at this year’s Stagecoach: California’s Country Music Festival, Hangout Festival, Electric Forest, Mo Pop Festival, Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival and more.
“Technology plays an increasingly important role in improving the overall experience at music festivals, and it’s paramount to all that we do at AEG Presents,” said Brooke Michael Kain, chief digital officer at AEG Presents. “We are helping fans spend less time waiting in lines and more time enjoying the music by partnering with innovative companies like Postmates to solve problems like these,” said Andrew Klein, managing director at AEG Presents Global Partnerships.
“Our mission is to enable anyone to have anything on-demand and we’re always looking for creative, new ways to bring that mission to life,” said Bastian Lehmann, co-founder and CEO at Postmates. “As the leading on-demand platform with millennials, driving innovation with music festivals like Coachella and Stagecoach is an exciting opportunity for our brand.”
Postmates Pickup will be integrated into festivals’ mobile apps giving guests the ability to order food, non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages, and merchandise in a few simple steps:
- Guests open their festival app
- Click on “Postmates Pickup” and sign into their Postmates account
- Browse and select desired offerings
- Place your order
Once orders are placed, attendees will receive a pickup time and text notification when the order is ready. Orders will be available at designated Postmates Pickup points located throughout the festival. At larger festivals like Coachella, AEG Presents will build commissary kitchens dedicated to preparing Postmates orders to ensure shorter wait times.
