Starbucks announced today they are teaming with Skrillex, one of the leading personalities in the booming Electronic Dance Music scene, to open a series of EDM-themed coffee houses across the country.
“We are excited to partner with Skrillex in this new venture,” a company spokesperson said. “We have some innovative ideas such as baristas wearing furry boots and headbands from the 60s.”
The coffee houses are large enough to accommodate crowds of 200,000. The vary first operation will be a temporary location just inside the perimeter at the Burning Man Festival in Northern Nevada.
Skrillex is expected to make regular appearances at the new coffee houses, schedule permitting. The company spokesperson said he would not be filling any coffee orders himself.
