The interactive experience Heineken House is making its return to 2017 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, which will take place April 14 to April 16 and April 21 to April 23 at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California. Fresh off his work on Kendrick Lamar’s latest album, George Clinton & The Parliament Funkadelic will play a full two-hour set on April 15 only. Other Heineken House exclusive performances include Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, TWRK, Chris Lake, DJ Sliink, DJ Nu Mark and BJ the Kid.
The following is an excerpt from a Heineken press release:
The Heineken House, open to festival goers ages 21 and over, is more than just unforgettable and legendary musical performances and experiences. For the second year in a row, the House boasts a Sustainable Dance Floor powered by the movement of the attendees during each set. Kinetic energy created when attendees bust a move will be converted into electricity used to power the LED lights of the floor, creating a unique party atmosphere. The more house-goers dance, the more the house will light up.
When not listening to music, a Digital Art Wall inside the Heineken House is dedicated to bringing to life the creative spirit of the festival. The interactive simulation area that allows House visitors to create custom art with a selected stencil, or tag a selfie with a spray can. Coachella attendees will then be able to email their artwork as a souvenir or share on their social channels.
New this year to the Heineken House at Coachella is “This One Is On Us”, an initiative launched in the United States for the first time in March. Consumers can visit a water bar in the Heineken House to receive free cups of water throughout the entire duration of the festival. By encouraging moderate drinking, we can enable festival attendees to get the most out of their festival experience, compliments of Heineken.
“This One Is On Us” debuted for the first time in 2016 and is part of Heineken’s commitment to Brewing a Better World, by offering initiatives that make responsible consumption and sustainable practices easier, accessible and more relevant to our fans.”
