The last weekend of February, EDC Mexico took place in Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez to celebrate its 10th anniversary, which I had the privilege to attend. Let’s talk about how it went! 

EDC Mexico was first celebrated in 2014, but the first time I was there was in 2017. Since then, I fell in love with the community, and no jokes, it changed my life. There were supposed to be 10 EDC’s, but because of COVID-19, the 2021 festival got canceled. 

One of the things I have noticed is that EDC MX has been growing throughout the years. At first it brought together ravers from all across the country, and then, from all over the world. This was the first time the festival was sold out.

At its beginning, EDC Mexico was a 2 day festival, but in 2020 one more day was added. Now, EDC MX is the second biggest EDC in the world, right after EDC Las Vegas

The Lineup 

Renowned artists performed this year giving the public a taste of every genre as Carl Cox, Paul Van Dyk, Yellow Claw, Zedd, Rezz, Virtual Riot, Armin Van Buuren, Skrillex…. This last one was one of the most anticipated DJ’s of the Mexican public. Also,  Insomniac gave the opportunity to new productors to execute on stage and show off his work, including national and international talent. 

There were some surprises prepared for this year's festival, one of them was the set of Deorro, who showed up as EDC special guest which made the crowd get mad. 

The Venue 

EDC Mexico has 6 main stages: KineticFIELD, CircuitGROUNDS, NeonGARDEN,WasteLAND, MIXX STAGE (In this one usually sounds latin rhythms) and StereoBLOOM. 

With a reduced version of AWAKENING (The same that was used at EDC Vegas), the balance with the technology and the fantasy made the KineticFIELD a magic experience.

Art was presented with a sculpture of holding hands in the electric line and different works of art around the festivals shining in bright colors. EDC MX starts during the afternoon, so the experience during the day and during the night changes completely. The location is huge, so there are ornaments all around. 

There’s no camping, but there are some free attractions and activities: Glitter and hair station, Photo Booth, mechanical games, slides, etc. All included with your GA; fun fact, in EDC Mexico you can buy tickets per day. 


All are welcome here! And when I said that, I meant it. EDC always felt like home to me. I’ve been to Vegas and there’s no doubt about the magic of the festival and EDC MX has the same thing. I’ve attended all the festivals in Mexico and EDC is my favorite because the harmony feels unreal. 

PLUR is alive, and you can see it. Everyone is enjoying music, smiling at you, willing to help you… 

As a latin raver, I’m aware EDM brings us together as a family. But as a latin woman, I know that my latinos are warm, empathic, and know how to party! Mixing these two, make EDC Mexico an amazing place to be. You are welcome here, and we are excited to meet you! 

Food and drinks

If you were hungry, there were plenty of options to feed your stomach. There was a food court with tables where you could take a seat. During the weekend I ate a hamburger and some tacos, but that was only my preference. You could eat chicken wings, mozzarella sticks or even crepes! There were also people selling food in the aisles, so you were able to buy snacks from one stage to another, same with drinks.There were places designated to buy drinks, alcoholic beverages, soda or water. But there were also free water stations. 

The festival was completely cashless, so if you wanted to buy anything, you needed to charge money (Using card or cash) to a bracelet which was the only payment method. There were stops for that, but one week before the festival, you were able to do that through the internet. 

EDC MX every year has commemorative glasses, so once you buy a beer, you get one. In this edition, the glasses were for recycling, so the dynamic was that every time you returned the glass, it was given part of your money back. 


That weekend, the Mexican government declared environmental contingency, so the first two days, there were no pyrotechnics.The artist used little papers that flew away and we barely noticed the absence of fireworks because of the lasers and the performers. 

The last day, everything changed. The contingency was lifted and the opening and closing show was pure bliss. EDC is known for their fireworks show, and this time in Mexico, they took my breath away. It felt like a 10 year anniversary. 

Congratulations for your first 10 years in Mexico City EDC, can’t wait to see you next year!
