Hop on RVIP Lounge at LAFF This Weekend
If you're at any LA Film Festival events this weekend, keep your eyes and ears open for the RVIP Lounge. The ridiculously fun, pimped-out ride, is appearing outside film festival venues and events, Friday through Sunday.
If you come across the RVIP Lounge, step inside or take a ride. The RVIP, first made famous at SXSW last March, is going Tinseltown replete with a group of up-and-coming filmmakers & celebs, inspired new media and tech innovators, and musicians. And it wouldn't be an RVIP Lounge without a supply of sponsored libations, digital media mayhem and thousands of karaoke tracks ready to be rocked.
Keep an eye out for the raucous RV with the red carpet.
For more information and the tentative schedule, visit the RVIP Lounge website or follow it on Twitter.
