Participants will also have access to Ponce City Market’s diverse and distinctive Central Food Hall and retail offerings. After visiting Ponce City Market, participants are encouraged to use the direct access from Ponce City Market to stroll along the Atlanta Beltline.


The evening events, developed and produced by Atlanta-based integrated design and marketing organization MA!, begin at sunset with Collectif Coin’s “Cyclique,” an immersive audio-reactive light show, with repeat performances throughout the evening.

It featured 256 helium balloons equipped with LED lights. The 700-square-meter floating matrix lights up to create a choreographed display perfectly in sync with the music. Collectif Coin is a renowned digital arts company based in Grenoble, France, whose work includes many world-class installations and exhibitions incorporating the mediums of both sound and light.

“The MINI TAKES THE STATES Pre-Event with Collectif Coin's exceptional performance is a great opportunity to welcome our MINI community and engage the residents of our host city Atlanta,” said Craig Phillips, Regional Business Manager, BMW Group – Southern Region.

“Ponce City Market’s centralized location and commitment to promoting the arts is ideal for sharing the Collectif Coin experience with rally participants, the public, residents, and Beltline visitors.”


Rally participants and the public were encouraged to bring a non-perishable item to donate to the Atlanta Community Food Bank (ACFB).

ACFB is a partner of Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger-relief organization dedicated to fighting domestic hunger through a network of food banks, and the Official Charity Partner of the cross-country road rally. A portion of the proceeds from each MTTS 2016 registration fee was donated to Feeding America.
