The portfolio spans a diverse set of consumer categories, including beauty (10Beauty, Playground); consumer technology (WhatNot, Betr, Telly); food and beverage (Long Drink, Poppi, Fly By Jing, immi, Rob’s Backstage Popcorn); sports lifestyle (Recess Pickleball); and more.

Founded by global music icon, Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll (“Kygo”), and his manager Myles Shear, and led by CEO Michael Diaz, Palm Tree Crew is a diversified holding company that operates a global live events and hospitality business, a lifestyle consumer brand, and a multi-stage investment platform.

Palm Tree Crew produces premium experiences all over the world, most notably through its flagship event Palm Tree Music Festival. PTC held eight festivals in 2023, in locations such as Aspen, Westhampton, and Dana Point in North America to Bali, Australia, and India internationally.

PTC also produces more bespoke and intimate high-end events such as Palm Tree BaselPalm Tree Grand Prix, and Palm Tree New Year s Eve.

In addition to live experiences, Palm Tree Crew is a cultural leader in the lifestyle space, producing merchandise collections both independently as well as in collaboration with leading consumer brands across the sports, culture, and fashion industries.

In 2024, PTC will bring Palm Tree Music Festival back to all domestic markets, as well as select new ones to be announced soon, and will continue its international expansion.
