Sounds of the Summer: W Hotels Rewrites the Music Festival Rules by Going All Access (and Perhaps a Bit of Excess)


The World's First-Ever Hotel Music Festival Series Embarks Upon a Jetset Tour Like You've Never Seen Before

NEW YORK (PRWEB) August 24, 2018

Summer means music festival season. But for those of us uninterested in camping or standing in fields for days on end, W Hotels is throwing out the festival playbook and creating an experience that is as fabulous as it is fun.

A video accompanying this announcement is available at:

It's all access (and perhaps a bit of excess), all the time. Where pools of mud are replaced by poolside performances. Where endless seas of people give way to Instaworthy views of the sea. Think day beds, not day passes.

"Music is a universal language, one we have spoken since day one at W," said Anthony Ingham, Global Brand Leader, W Hotels Worldwide. "We've brought the Whatever/Whenever mentality to recording artists and guests for years."

Anthony Ingham - Global Brand Leader, W Hotels Worldwide, partnered with D S Simon Media and YourUpdate.TV on a nationwide media tour to discuss the global roll out of WAKE UP CALL, the brand's signature music festival series.

Ingham spoke with stations around the country to discuss:

  • The type of customers music festivals appeal to and what makes this one different
  • How the festival is about much more than just music
  • Why W Hotels became the latest unexpected entrant into the music festivals industry
  • How guests (and specifically Marriott Rewards and Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) loyalty members) can get the most out of their festival experience
