Zamna Tulum is a venue in the iconic town of Tulum, Mexico. Located in Mexico’s Riviera Maya, Tulum is known for it’s blue Caribbean water, perfect beaches, its foodie and art scene, and also its impressive amount of techno. Located in a beautiful Cenote, 5 kms outside Tulum, Zamna is a small eco-Hotel that host some of the best parties on earth. This venue hosts events all year long, but they always have a full week full of events around New Year’s Eve every year. This year will see 10 days of different events at Zamna, starting on December 28th and ending on January 8th.
This is not a typical festival format, and is more like Miami Music Week. There are different events, some hosted by labels, everyday and even mini-festivals like Afterlife and Renaissance. These events have more artists on the lineup and have two stages. The other events start later in the evening and go to the early morning, more like seeing a show at a venue in a city on a Friday night. This gives you the whole day in Tulum to lay on the beach, explore, do yoga, etc. before going out to a night full of techno.
The full lineup is below, broken down by day. Individual party flyers follow, which show the different events and artists more clearly. Zamna Tulum starts of the Winter Series on December 28th with Innercity Odyssey, which will see a Bob Moses DJ/club set.
