Revolve Apologise After Coachella Weekend Controversy

Well, we saw this coming...

After Coachella weekend one, influencers were left not so happy with the clothing brand Revolve as their festival party Revolve Fest left them with much to be desired…

Although on Instagram the event looked like the hottest ticket in town as it does many years, with the likes of Kendall Jenner and Kim Kardashian attending, for those less A-list stars the event was chaos, pure chaos according to TikToks from attendees, or those who tried to attend.

With influencers on TikTok branding it ‘Fyre Fest 2.0’, Revolve have finally addressed the matter.

In a statement to E! News, a representative from Revolve said, “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.

“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.”

“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,” they continued.

They finished the statement with a highly anticipated apology, “We sincerely apologise to all the guests who were impacted, We always strive to provide a great experience and we promise to do better.”

With this, we take it that Revolve Fest will return next year, hopefully to redeem its reputation and ensure everyone actually gets there and back without being stranded or competing in the influencer Olympics in order to secure a spot on a shuttle.

Sharing a commentary on what it was actually like to be there for those who made it, one content creator Meghan Rinks took to TikTok and admitted she ‘never felt more like she was crashing something or not wanted somewhere, when she was literally invited.’ Continuing to note that it felt like a ‘popular girl’s birthday where you just have to be grateful to be there.’

We look forward to seeing whether they make a comeback next year…
