For years we’ve often wondered, “Wouldn’t it be cool if we kicked out the sales department and turned the giant open room into a night club, complete with a stage, studio lighting and amazing sound?” Well, thanks to our friends at Red Bull, we’ve accomplished the unthinkable. After convincing our sales team to move into another facility, we removed the cubicles, ripped up the carpet, painted the room black, welded trussing, hung sound and lighting and made ourselves a club rivaling any in LA. Welcome to the Red Bull Sound Space at KROQ. After months of prep, it’s finally come time to break in our space with a little band known as Coldplay. Tuesday, October 18th, it’s Kevin & Bean’s Breakfast with Coldplay, and we’re giving you the opportunity to join us for this inaugural event inside the Red Bull Sound Space at KROQ. For those of you out of state, or who are unable to enter the contest, you’ll be excited to learn that we’ll webcast the entire breakfast live!
