Rosendal Garden Party: Polestar 2 hosts the world’s first in-car livestreamed music festival
Streaming. A way to deliver and consume content in real time without the need for storage. This now ubiquitous technology has seen a wide variety of content and events appear on multiple devices. Computers. Smartphones. And now, thanks to the Vivaldi web browser, Polestar 2.
Through our partnership with concert event Rosendal Garden Party, Polestar 2 will now host the world’s first livestreamed, in-car music festival, featuring performances by GAYLE, The National, Linn Koch-Emmery, and Daniela Rathana. Drivers of Polestar 2 will be able to stream a different set by the aforementioned artists each night of the festival (see sidebar).
Taking place on the picturesque island of Djurgården in Stockholm’s archipelago from June 8th to the 11th, Rosendal Garden Party’s lineup also features The Strokes, Florence + The Machine, Tyler, The Creator, Wet Leg, and Albin Lee Meldau.
And of course, the collaboration is about more than streaming live sets from the festival to the all-electric fastback. Rosendal Garden Party will make use of the methodology we implemented in our LCA reports to measure and understand how they can reduce the climate footprint of the event and its visitors.
Streaming enables a wide variety of content to be consumed on an equally wide variety of devices. Thanks to the Rosendal collaboration, music festivals and EVs can now be added to that list.
The End of the Beginning
As of today, June 24th, Polestar is listed on the Nasdaq in New York under the ticker PSNY. This allows us to welcome shareholders, as well as customers, to join our journey towards more sustainable electric performance. This is a confirmation that Polestar has come of age. An end of the beginning. And a beginning of something more.
BST edition 270: the performance-oriented Polestar 2
Performance is relative. For most people, running 100 m in 20 seconds would be remarkable. For Usain Bolt, it would be a disappointment. Polestar 2, with its holistic, intuitive, highly engineered driving experience, is already a performance EV by many standards. With the release of Polestar 2 BST edition 270, there's now a version that brings that performance to an entirely new level.
Polestar at the Met Gala
Few things occupy the space where design, art, and innovation meet as naturally as fashion. The runway is a known environment for true experimentation, showcasing new techniques, materials, and design philosophies to audiences eager to see what’s next and what’s still in the realm of fantasy. The Met Gala, colloquially known as “fashion’s big night out”, is where the who’s who of this world congregate. And to meet up at this meeting of minds, participants took another thing that’s perfectly at home in the middle of the Venn diagram of design, art, and innovation: Polestar 2.
