Festival season is back in all its glory, kicking off this weekend with the fifth edition of Carnaval de Bahidorá. Among the dozens of major music fests in Mexico, Bahidorá stands out for its free-spiritedness and idyllic surroundings. The lush natural landscape of Las Estacas, Morelos offers music fans a unique and immersive experience far removed from the corporate environment of many US festivals. A full night of camping with non-stop music until early afternoon the next day guarantees the trek will be well worth it.
To get you psyched for the weekend, we’ve put together a playlist featuring some of the heavyhitters and younger talent gracing the Bahidorá stages. We’ve included Mexican underground electronic wizards Wet Baes and Trillones, NYC hood bruja Princess Nokia, Colombian environmentalists and electro-champeta pioneers Systema Solar, and more insanely talented acts. Just when you thought the music and stunning vistas couldn’t get any more tantalizing, we’re also giving away four free passes to some lucky soon-to-be Carnaval goers. Make sure to register below and you could find yourself in the thick of an unforgettable weekend. Camping accommodations are not included in the passes, but with the A+ talent on the bill, you will likely dance all through the night and pass out on the bus ride home anyway.
Bahidora hits Las Estacas, Morelos on February 18 and 19, 2017. Enter to win passes below.
