Since its first edition in 1999, the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival has been enjoying ever greater popularity and is now a can’t-miss venue on the worldwide musical scene that attracts hundreds of thousands of spectators who dance to the sound of international artists performing in the desert around Palm Springs, California. This year, TAG Heuer joined the Coachella phenomenon as Official Watch for the event.
This partnership highlights the disruptive strategy pursued by the watch brand, which aims to broaden its audiences, notably by addressing a younger audience, as confirmed by Jean-Claude Biver, CEO of TAG Heuer and President of the LVMH Group Watches Division : “We’ve connected with new fans of TAG Heuer through our support of musical events and talents, and our ability to communicate with a younger generation will be furthered by this partnership”. Amid an extremely laid-back atmosphere, festival-goers enjoyed a chance to view the latest TAG Heuer models. Coinciding with the event, the brand also unveiled the latest Aquaracer 300M version. Sporty and efficient, as well as elegant and relaxed, this model is the ideal companion for a trip to the California desert.
