4.Instagram campaign of brands

Below i have mentioned each brands and how they used Coachella for their promotions using insta


Here comes someone related us, Levi's mexico, Levi's spain, & Levi's italy and some other Levi's brands sent their Influencers to event and published best contents for their audience. 

Say you're a Sri lankan tea company, you want to attract European and American audience, you can send few Influencers to event and can attract your audience or you can ask influencers to post about event by relating to your tea brand.

Note one thing, Levi's Mexico and Levi's spain not posted same content, eventhough event is happening in US, they posted contents related to their audience in Spain and Mexico. 

Influencers who are collaborated - Andy Torres, Belen hostales and Veronica Ferraro.

Check hashtag #Liveinlevis


Not only Levi's, A Italian fashion brand who sells mostly in other European countries and USA also sent their Influencers to event. 

Again i am saying these events are not only for US audience you can attract European audience too

Motivi sent 5 European Influencers to festival and they posted travel fashion contents and then posted festival contents.

The brand used #MotiviamaCoachella

Urban Decay

Ok, you're thinking i am an Asian brand , how can go and participate in the event, that's expensive for me. Yes true,
You dont need to be in the event to cover your

Urban decay , the cosmetic brand come up with the idea of festival makeup tutorial campaign by partnering with an Influencer call Maryam Maquillage.

Maryam posted multiple contents on festival makeup tutorial and lot of women audience engaged with the contents. 


So we check 3 fashion brands, but not only fashion brands other brands also can do promotions.

BMW provided transportation to VIP audience and they documented all journeys and posted each in social medias.

Documents had a hashtag ot #RoadToCoachella

Finally i am saying you can be in any industry, like hospitality, Luxury business tea, travel, fashion, E-com, sports, exports but if you're selling in international marketing Coachella and Bonnaroo events can be a good way to gain more international followers
