Comunité Tulum has added Cuban artists DJ Jigüe, Carlos Guerra and Alain Garcia, founder of Manana Festival, to its stacked 2017 line-up. The event is being held in Tulum, Mexico’s Parque Dos Ojos on Friday, 6th January 2017.
Regarding the new additions, Garcia states, “The union of these three Cubans has the objective of taking cultural richness, the spirituality of the Cuban everyday life and translate it on stage by using elements of popular religion and street language mixed with Jigüe’s beats and Carlitín’s (Carlos Guerra) magic hands.” Performing alongside newly aforementioned artists are the previously announced Omar S, Margaret Dygas and Dengue Dengue Dengue, amongst others.
Last year, Comunité donated its proceeds to producing clean water systems for nearby families. For 2017, the festival will donate its proceeds to Restore Coral in order to preserve the Caribbean coral reefs. “The Mexican Caribbean is losing the battle against climate change and the human footprint on the environment. About 75%-80% of the coral density has been lost. This is why this year we invite our community to take action,” says the festival on its ticket page.
You have the option of donating $5 to Restore Coral at the ticket point of purchase. In addition to being earth-friendly, the beachside festival is 100% vegan.
