Yeah, it’s unfortunate that Delta Air Lines dropped its corporate sponsorship of the Sundance Film Festival after six years. But don’t despair; there are still plenty of celebs with great photo-ops and goodies to be had. When “the dance,” as it is oft referred to, hits Park City, Utah on January 21, you can rest assured that the goodies will still be of epic proportions (who said they wouldn’t be?).
First item on the list: Oakley’s “Learn to Ride” Program, where celebs will not only be outfitted by the brand in head-to-toe ski-wear, but also receive private lessons from the best of the best. Who are these instructors? So far Olympic gold medalist Shaun White, Olympic silver medalists Danny Kaas and Gretchen Bleiler, and pro rider Zach Leach are confirmed. Key phrase: so far. Oh, the possibilities.
Next, we have newbie to the fest Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s J&G Grill, located at the St. Regis Hotel in Deer Valley. The culinary icon will take a slice of his restaurant to the dance, and is said to be it for V.I.P. diners. Also new to the Sundance scene is the Microsoft Bing Suite, which’ll take over the museum on Main Street.
Getting your swag on takes “the right look,” and the Village at the Lift can help you there. Fill your bag with Under Armour, Diesel, Sanctuary clothing, Lia Sophia jewelry, Popchips, and Muscle Milk Light. It’s like a piñata run for us fashionistas.
If you’re looking for something off-the-beaten-path of Main Street, head over to the Talent Resources Sky Suite, located at the Sky Lodge Hotel. There will also be a daytime D.J. series featuring the hottest celebrity spin-masters(insider tip: Danny Masterson and Steve Aoki will be taking to the decks for Saturday night’s AXECYB.com party).
Speaking of nightlife, Tao is back at the Lift for the fifth time as it plays host to press junkets by day and exclusive lounge by night. Variety will also be hosting its 10th annual “10 Directors to Watch” party, and U.T.A. will throw its yearly party, too.
This is just a taste of what’s to come from one of the biggest film festivals of them all. Delta Airlines who?
