Amazon announced that for the first time ever, Amazon Lockers will be available as a convenient and secure delivery option for the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
Customers will have the ability to ship everything they need from sun hats and phone chargers to lip balm and portable fans directly to an Amazon Locker at no additional cost during both festival weekends – April 12-14 and April 19-21.
“We want customers to make the most out of their weekend at Coachella. Bringing the convenience of Amazon Lockers to Coachella will help customers focus on their experience instead of worrying about forgetting something at home or having to carry it in with them.”
Patrick Supanc, Amazon Worldwide Director of Lockers and Pickup
Amazon will introduce a curated Amazon.com storefront to help customers shop for items they need and discover other festival-inspired products.
It will feature a selection of essentials from categories including fashion & accessories, beauty, health & wellness, tech, and camping. The storefront will open in the weeks leading up to the festival at amazon.com/Coachella.
Shipping to an Amazon Locker at Coachella will be easy and secure. During checkout, customers will select one of the Amazon Lockers at Coachella as their shipping address.
Once their package is ready for pickup, customers will receive an e-mail along with a barcode that they’ll use to pick up their package.
Amazon Lockers will have a designated space within the festival gates and Amazon team members will be onsite to answer any questions from customers picking up their package.
“Mobile” Amazon Lockers
The idea of offering event based delivery lockers like this is unique and a concept that could easily be expanded to other larger events.
For Coachella, Amazon is required to follow event restrictions on items that are allowed inside the festival gates and will need to curate the products available online.
