RSVLTS Indio Valley Music Festival 2016 Party Guide presented by @RSVLTS on Snapchat

Everyone knows that since we first partnered with Heineken in 2013 as their official content producer for Indio we were hooked and Indio, California’s premier music festival became a cornerstone for RSVLTS.com. We’re an east coast company but the pilgrimage to the desert in Indio each year have become an annual tradition.

After attending various pool parties in the vicinity of of the festival grounds we quickly realized there is more to America’s greatest music festival than the actual festival itself. There are pool parties, carnivals, brand events and so much more that offer an oasis to drink icy cold beers and kick back with friends poolside.

In 2014 we launched our Indio Music Festival Party Guide as a one-stop-shop for the most up to date event information, and judging by the dozens of exclusive tips and hundreds of emails we received, it ended up being much more than a piece of content. In 2015 festival goers were using this as a road map to their weekend planning so it is imperative that we run it back in 2016, bigger and badder.
