This year the festival returns to the Mayan Riviera in a new otherworldly location in Tulum to celebrate a third edition – the most special yet. Backed with an always top-grade assembly of artists, the festival migrates its community to an amazing paradisiac location to converge in a pristine environment for these new times. Comunité, at its third edition, has become a distinctive platform that encourages sharing, communion, communication, and union through music and ecological consciousness; an atemporal happening put together by a 100% Mexican team of producers and curators – bringing people together to transmit a message towards global consciousness while addressing social, cultural, and environmental issues.
The way we interact with our environment channels into an ever-changing variable where new doors open and others close. Ideas constantly emerge in this world of practically unlimited access to information and stimuli. To live and understand such a world, our emotional intelligence becomes decisive and the need to delve into our roots arises. It is vital to develop a responsible awareness within the importance of energy, nature, and human relations – all geared towards cultural evolution. There is a demand for a sense of belonging and collective identity - a need to speak the same language. Art and music have always been the perfect vehicles for this and the context where they happen has become a part of the art itself. Comunité’s purpose lays around meeting this present and projecting its values towards the construction of a better society and the preservation of our cultural and environmental heritage.
Our mission is driven by two ideals. The first one is to maintain a platform that encourages sharing, communion, communication, and union through artistic expression. The second one is to make a statement portraying a space where Latin American sounds are emphasised. Together they represent an annual celebration that pushes local pride and the showcase of global tendencies; supporting tourism and achieving self-appreciation within Mexico, Latin countries, and the rest of the international community.
An immersive jungled ranch within Tulum, a tropical spring with 3 cenotes – the Lunar Stage by a mystical underground water chamber, the Solar Stage by a beach-like cove and a third freshly-inaugurated caved stage.
It is believed that cenotes are the Mayan gates to the underworld in ancient mythology, which encompass the experience into the always present mysticism that pairs with Comunité’s musical manifesto. With a multiple-stage set up, the festival will integrate these cenotes as a primordial element of its identity.
Known in ancient times as Zama (sunrise in Mayan language), Tulum was a pre columbian city in the coast of Yucatán, which is now a treasure of the Quintana Roo state in the southeast of México – reaching its sublime point between the 13th and 15th century. There is proof of this in murals and other pieces found in the City’s structures. Tulum was considered to be an important centre for the cult of “The Diving God.”
