EDM IN Mexico

When lovers think about the geographic hub of the genre, some obvious contenders come to mind––Amsterdam most often being at the of the list. But a lesser-known gem has a flourishing club scene: Mexico. So EDM fans might want to add this country to their travel bucket list, from several successful DJs and artists to exclusive nightclubs.

Artists

One of the scene staples in is the vast array of talented and successful DJs from the country. Amongst them, a few notable names are Marianna Bo, J Clava, and Marco Balcazar.

In 2020, a hundred dance producers and DJs of Latin descent teamed up for an extensive collaboration: “100 Latin Producers: Volume 1.” As the title suggests, it is a single featuring 100 DJs. The release was intended to raise awareness of the scene and talent in Latin America and features a handful of Mexican artists, including Broz Rodriguez, Alex Berserker, Vago Galindo, and Lalo Mariné and Koko.

Festivals

Music events have significantly contributed to the rise in the scene in Mexico. Not only have these events attracted a crowd of A-listers in the EDM industry, but they’ve showcased the scenic beauty that the country has to offer. Here are a couple of the most well-known events that has hosted:

EDC Mexico

Founded by Insomniac and OCESA in 2014, the collaboration festival EDC Mexico has grown to become one of North America’s largest music festivals. With a seemingly continuous increase in attendance, stage count and even adding a third day, this year’s edition was the biggest yet while also being one of the few festivals taking place prior to pandemic plans all over the world. Hosted by some of the biggest acts around and drawing more than 100,000 fans per day, last year’s event was the biggest ever.

As grows internationally, it is unsurprising that new and thriving club scenes are springing up in every corner of the world. Among them, Mexico’s EDM scene features life-changing annual festivals and impressive artists. So EDM lovers might want to consider booking a flight to Cancun or Mexico City for their next vacation.
