Apr 26, 2018

SiriusXM Reinvents the Toyota Sienna “Swagger Wagon” for a Unique Marfa-Themed Festival Experience to be featured at popular music festivals around the country

Torrance, Calif., April 26, 2018 – Launching at Stagecoach Festival in Indio, California on April 27th, Toyota Sienna Festivan Wonderland Presented by SiriusXM is a distinct festival destination inspired by the vibrant and wild atmosphere of Marfa, Texas. The experience is designed to provide festival guests a relaxing escape from the bustle of the festival and create opportunities to engage with SiriusXM’s in-vehicle discovery experience and embrace the #vanlife movement. The Toyota Sienna Festivan Wonderland Presented by SiriusXM will have a presence at a number of soon-to-be-announced popular music festivals throughout the summer and fall.

The Toyota Sienna Festivan Wonderland Presented by SiriusXM experience gives a nod to the mystic, avant-garde vibe associated with the small Texas town of Marfa, which has been established as a favored destination for artists and tastemakers alike. The experience transforms the original Swagger Wagon into the Swagger Wagon Festivan (“Festivan”) and features a specially designed creative space complete with four customized Siennas, each with their own “personality” attributed to Marfa, and fully ready for guests to interact and engage with:

Let’s Go Glamping – This Festivan will be modified to look and feel like a Marfa-inspired glamping camper featuring brightly colored wrapped front seats, string lights, and desert décor. The middle and rear seats will be removed to create a cozy lounge in the back complete with bed, sink, storage cabinets, pillows and blankets for the ultimate #vanlife relaxation zone, and even phone chargers available throughout for guests to charge up their mobile devices.

Marfa Lights – Inspired by the famous and mysterious Marfa Lights, this Festivan will feature blacked out windows and fiber optic lights woven into the ceiling of the Sienna to resemble stars slowly twinkling in dazzling colors. Guests will enter the Festivan for a one-of-a-kind photo experience, posing inside as a photo technician adds a light painting effect for a unique photo to share on social media.

Crystal Dreams – Guests will jump into the Crystal Dreams Festivan and spend a few minutes with an energy reader who will gift each person a crystal specific to their personal reading. Once guests receive their crystal, supplies on site will be available to craft a crystal necklace to bring positive vibes throughout the festival weekend.

Sienna Festivan Desert Studio – Inspired by the popular Prada popup store outside Marfa, this Festivan will feature a West Texas desert themed wrap complete with an overhead awning just like iconic store front. To add to the perfect photo opportunity, there will be photo lighting and fans to create the wind-blown look amongst a desert backdrop.

In addition, The Toyota Sienna Festivan Wonderland Presented by SiriusXM experience will feature The Highway Diner, a desert themed pop up diner for guests to relax, grab delicious Texas breakfast tacos and refreshing aguas frescas, and will include iPads and JBL headphones for guests to check out demos of SiriusXM’s extensive programming on their streaming app.

“The Toyota Sienna Festivan Wonderland is a fun opportunity to highlight SiriusXM’s easy-to-use, in-vehicle discovery experience to the many people attending music festivals this year,” said Meredith Himelfarb, Senior Manager of Automotive Partnership Marketing for SiriusXM. “We are proud to present this experience, which brings together the best in new music discovery and live entertainment with Toyota’s innovation and creativity.”

“The Toyota Sienna Festivan Wonderland gives us a chance to have fun with a vehicle that’s not usually thought of in that way,” said Sarah Krysanick Huang, Vehicle Marketing and Communications, Toyota Motor North America. “We’re proud to partner with SiriusXM on this activation that allows festival goers the opportunity to enjoy music and food while interacting with four fun and unique Siennas that push the limit on the perception of minivans and embrace the #vanlife movement.”
