“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:

  1. Guests open their festival app
  2. Click on “Postmates Pickup” and sign into their Postmates account
  3. Browse and select desired offerings
  4. 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
