The first ever Corona Elements Music Festival captivated an audience of an estimated 35,000 people last Saturday, September 12th at the world famous Mamitas Beach Club. Beginning at 4:00p.m, festival goers gathered on the white sand in front of the performance platform beset by an enormous serpent's mouth. The dazzled crowd danced until the early morning, with hands towards the sky, to the electronic beats spun by superior DJs Kaskade, Chromeo, Borgore and Jorge Nava.
Just a few steps down the pristine shoreline, sat the VIP section in the buildings of Mamitas Beach Club. The sultry Caribbean climate provided a perfect setting for the festival, as VIP guests cooled off in the posh pool on the lower level. On the upper level, patrons were served premium bottles of liquor and Corona in cans specially designed, commemorating the event. Whether on the beach or as a VIP, any seat in the open air venue provided a prime position to take in the hypnotic sounds and explosive light shows blasting from the entrancing stage.
This was the inaugural spectacle in a series of four which will be held in upcoming months elsewhere in the Yucatan Peninsula. Each theme is inspired by nature's most powerful forces. Last weekend's epic production in Playa del Carmen was created around a 'Water' vision. Three more electrifying festivals will be held in Merida on October 24, December 5, and January 30. The next music fest's theme is 'Earth' and will present talented musicians in the Rock genre. The third will feature the element 'Air' with some of the world's best Indie/Pop artists, and the final will showcase top Latin performers amidst a blazing 'Fire' element. The concept for Corona Elements was established to invite the people of the Yucatan Peninsula to discover revered national and international artists encompassing a diverse range of genres through four unique experiences. It is a movement which is intended to connect the public with music in a manner so dynamic and unlike any other in this region.
Organizers, promoters and attendees were blown away by the brilliant talent and success of the phenomenal event. Tickets ranged from $335.00 pesos for general admittance to $1010.00 pesos for access to the luxe VIP lounge with its newly renovated pool area.
