Compared to the overwhelming environmental design of the event itself, Coachella’s website is actually pretty understated. What makes this website special is how it changes based on the time of day. When we took this screenshot, it was nighttime and the site reflected that with darkness. If you check now (so long as it’s daytime in California), the sky will be a completely different shade. It’s an effective technique because it makes us want to check back every hour just to see how the website has changed. Location: Indio, California, USAHeld in April First year held: 1999 2014 Headliners: Outkast, Muse, Arcade Fire6. Electric Daisy Carnival Web design for EDC Given the wild reputation of North America’s biggest electronic dance festival, The Electric Daisy Carnival, we’re a bit surprised that their site is so corporate. It’s one page on the larger website of Insomniac, a tour promoter that advertises around 10 different festivals every year. Maybe EDC should get its own page. We want some bigger daisy imagery! Location: Varies depending on the year Held in: June First year held: 2004 2014 Headliners: Avicii, Calvin Harris, Hardwell, Tiesto7. FYF Fest Web design for FYF A lesser-known California festival, FYF (we’ll let you check out what that stands for on their website) focuses on organizing the incredible amounts of festival information that needs to special leads be included – while also showcasing it in a distinctive and engaging way. Our favorite feature is the grid of images listing out the lineup. It’s a great use of transparency, photography, and typography. Location: Los Angeles, California, USAHeld in August First year held: 2004 2014 Headliners: Phoenix, The Strokes8. Glastonbury is known around the world as the original music fest. Held in the muddy fields of England every summer, it’s boasted an infamous reputation for decades. Their music festival design somehow makes bold color feel subdued, compared with the rest of these brands. Working in natural textures through both the imagery and typography, the look is softer without losing its edge. Location: Pilton, Somerset, EnglandHeld in June First year held: 1970 2014 Headliners: Arcade Fire, Metallica, Kasabian9. The Governor’s Ball Web design for Governors Ball In another just-not-quite-too-overwhelming design, The Governor’s Ball in New York pairs what is essentially a two-tone color scheme of salmon and blue with an intricate illustrated site structure. Like a couple of others in this collection, the site plays on graphics that you would see at the festival itself, pasting all of the information against the illustration of a metal billboard skeleton, with hip parallax scrolling to give more movement to the page.
