Everybody’s got their own definition of paradise, but for many it probably looks an awful lot like Catalina Island. The rocky, sun-drenched island, located off the coast of California, is typically home to a population of under 4,000 but Bud Light significantly upped this number after inviting 1,300 people to attend their week-long Whatever USA 2015 event.
With performances from Diplo, T-Pain, Snoop Dogg, Lil Jon and Girl Talk, the crowd partied until the wee small hours of the morning, with the festivities finally coming to a halt on Sunday. Crave was there to witness the whole thing, standing among the swarm of revelers and taking in the music in the sweltering heat. Take a look through our highlights from the event in the above video.
The event, covering 1 million square feet that grew to encapsulate both Catalina’s beachfront and harbor, also saw Bud making a $500,000 donation to Catalina’s city of Avalon, so everyone rounded off the week with a smile on their face.
Also, as part of Bud’s Whatever, USA experience, they’re also offering our readers the opportunity to cross items off their Summer Bucket Lists with a competition. To enter, all you need to do is post a summer photo showing how you and your friends are “Up For Whatever” using the hashtags #UpForWhatever and #BLContest.
