Global online retailer Revolve is addressing the comparisons between its Revolve Festival and the infamous Fyre Festival.
Over the weekend, many influencers who attended the desert party spoke out about the challenges they faced getting transportation, food, and water at the Revolve Festival.
Attendees online have been comparing the fiasco to Fyre Festival, which Revolve vehemently denies. In a press release, the company apologized for the events, and explained their safety procedures. They stated,
"In anticipation of the high level of interest in attending REVOLVE Festival this year, REVOLVE worked closely with all appropriate city and safety authorities to ensure a safe and secure path for guests to access the 2-day invitation-only event."
They explained that they were legally required to remain at a location separate from the festival, and that all transportation needed to be licensed, making it limited. They continued,
"With an event of this magnitude, city regulations mandate an off-site location for guest check-in and parking, as well as licensed shuttle transportation to and from the venue. The off-site lot was set up with guest parking, as well as rideshare drop-off and pickup access with added WIFI for car booking, restrooms, shade, water, medics and security."
Because of the limited shuttle access, some Revolve Festival goers were unable to attend Coachella at all. Some reports cite people passing out from heat exhaustion while waiting in line. Revolve explained,
"As the festival was reaching capacity late Saturday afternoon, shuttle access to the venue was limited in order to remain in compliance with safety requirements causing longer wait times for entry and resulting in some guests not being able to attend the festival. The safety of our guests is of the utmost importance to us and we will always make that a priority."
"We sincerely apologize to all the guests who were impacted. We always strive to provide a great experience and we promise to do better."
