EXPERIENCE

Deja Voom is an all-inclusive event taking place at a beautiful resort in the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. The event will feature three nights of music, as well as pool parties during the day, after-hour clubs at night, and tons of opportunities for adventures around the area or just laying on the beach. The Beach Stage is the main stage and will take place along a mile long stretch of white beach. This is where most of the sets will be and where Bassnectar will finish out his sets all three nights. The Haven Stage will be a workshop area during the day and an ambient low-tempo stage during the night. After music ends on the Beach Stage and Haven Stage, music will continue on in the two Deja Voom after-hours clubs – the Deja Room and the Voom Room. During the day, enjoy pool parties, laying on the beach, yoga sessions, snorkeling, surf contests, tennis, mini-golf, tequila tasting, and other types of all-inclusive resort activities. If you want to explore more, take a trip on one of the excursions for a day trip around the Riviera Maya.

PACKAGES/TRAVEL

Since Deja Voom is an all-inclusive resort festival, it is obviously not your typical festival experience and therefore tickets can only be bought in packages. No separate tickets just for music are being sold. Packages include either three, four, or five nights at the hotel of your choice, entrance to the three days of the festival (Thursday, Friday and Saturday), shuttles to and from the airport to your hotel, and merchandise gifts. You can choose how many nights you would like to stay depending if you want to spend more time exploring Mexico either before or after the show, and then purchase the correct package accordingly. Three different hotel options are being offered with prices ranging from $1,339 to $3,909 per person. All shuttles pick up from the Cancun International Airport, so make sure to arrange your flights to end in Cancun. You can either book directly to Cancun or check round trip flights to Mexico City from your location and then separate round trip flights from Mexico City to Cancun. Also, considering getting travelers insurance while in Mexico. Learn more about recommended travel insurance here.

It’s time to blast off into another dimension with this epicly curated event from Bassnectar. See you all in Paradise! 🙂
