Discovering the Sound of the Beach:

Jake Kirsch, Global Marketing Director at Corona says: “The beach is part of our DNA.  Over the past 80 years, we’ve developed a deep emotional connection with the beach in the hearts and minds of people around the world. This summer Corona continues our journey to celebrate the world’s beaches in every way.  First, we’ll invite you to step into the sunshine with #CoronaSunSets Festivals, a new music experience on the horizon.” 

Corona will also invite rising DJs from around the world to co-create and shape the soundtrack that defines the future Sound of the Beach.  Join us at, where the DJ career of your dream awaits you.

“We’re thrilled to create this new beach concept”, says Chris Stephenson, CMO at SFX Entertainment. “At any moment of the day, SunSets has its own special charm. We use Mother Nature’s own magnificent fireball as a natural backdrop for the pivotal moment of the event – the sunset. As shadows grow longer and the sun lights up the evening sky, the music gradually shifts from deep melodic, easy tunes to a more up-tempo beat. Each festival will host a maximum of 5.000 – 8.000 festival-goers.”

Finally, as we watch a star rise, we’ll celebrate the achievement by restoring the pristine nature of our beaches around the world, protecting them for future generations.  Through a partnership with the Foundation of Environmental Education (FEE) – a leading environmental NGO, and their global Blue Flag Initiative, Corona SunRise - Save the Beach will catalyze local communities to advocacy and action.  With every beach adopted and restored, we’ll recognize the shared effort through access to SunSets Festivals.
