The complaint was filed this past Tuesday in California that states that, “items marketed by the Urban Outfitters subsidiary Free People using “Coachella” in the product name or description. These include Free People's “Coachella Boot,” “Coachella Mini Dress,” “Coachella Pocket Tank” and “Coachella Valley Tunic.” – Billboard

While many clothing brands tend to capitalize on  the “festival season” fashion wave, heavying up marketing on common trends during this time, Urban Outfitters has allegedly (under complaints filed by the festival) has utilized search marketing tactics of utilizing branded keywords to direct consumers to their site, which is seen as a “misdirection”.

The festival officially kicks off in less than a month starting weekend 1 on April 14th bringing an estimated 600,000 attendees to Indio, CA.
