Skrillex Coachella House Party
In April 2018, we got invited to set up a Polycade activation for a Coachella after-party. The party was hosted by Skrillex at a house near the Empire Polo Club in Indio, CA where the music festival is held.

The night we set up our activation, Beyoncé headlined, but we heard she was telling people she'd rather play games on the Polycade all night.
Additional top-billing artists at Coachella 2018 included ODESZA, Portugal the Man, St. Vincent, Cardi B, Miguel, HAIM, Tyler the Creator, alt-J, Fleet Foxes, Post Malone, Migos, David Byrne, Kygo, The War on Drugs, SZA, A Perfect Circle, Jamiroquai and Vince Staples.

A heated head-to-head matchup
Unfortunately, the party was shut down before it got too late, but some lucky invitees got a chance to face off head-to-head before getting kicked out.
