Back in November, Uber announced they were partnering with Spotify so you could stream some heat right through your driver's car speakers. This is what the world has come to. You touch buttons on your phone, someone picks you up, and then you just kick back and bump beats. This is the 21st century people, and Uber is low key taking over the music game.
Along with the Spotify partnership, they did artist ride alongs that included Diplo, Matt and Kim, Professor Green, and more. Now Uber has teamed up with Livenation, and they are really going for it this time. Teaming up with 62 venues and around 20 festivals across the US, Uber is setting up designated pick up and drop off spots that will make festival life that much easier.
New users can currently use the code LIVENATION to redeem a free ride up to $20, and each festival will be supplying their own promotional code for new users as the events get closer. This will be kicking off at Sasquatch and EDC New York over Memorial Day weekend, and drive all the way till the end of 2015.
This includes some festivals that hadn't even announced their dates and details yet, but then again it's not too hard to guess what day Halloween festivals like HARD Day Of The Dead and Escape: All Hallow's Eve will be or White Wonderland NYE.
What is next for Uber? We can only guess, but we wouldn't be surprised to see Uber Records, Uber Fest, and Uber owened venues. Uber takeover is getting serious.
