Above & Beyond Reveal Anjunabeach Festival in Mexico’s Riviera Maya

With Anjunabeach excitement at an all time high as the one day festival arrives in Southern California this Saturday, Above & Beyond are excited to reveal their next Anjunabeach endeavour – a multi-day party in a Mexican beach paradise: Riviera Maya.

 

Situated on the idyllic, ancient Mayan coastline, this exclusive and all-inclusive weekender will see Above & Beyond host three days of electronic music on the beach, giving fans the chance to escape the outside world for a few days and connect with their global Anjunafamily.

 

With luxury packages starting from $1,589 per person and payment plans available, fans need only worry about their airfare, with the rest of the weekend managed by destination experience experts, CID Presents. An extremely limited amount of packages are available, fans who sign-up for pre-sale at anjunabeach.mx will be able to secure their spot in Mexico a day before the general public.

 

Jono Grant, Tony McGuinness and Paavo Siljamäki are the Grammy-nominated, dance music powerhouse Above & Beyond. With a career spanning two decades, Above & Beyond’s music soundtracks the lives of millions, their sometimes plaintive, always euphoric electronic anthems sung back at them from the dance floors of arenas on all five continents. Armed with a catalogue of cult songs that celebrate life, love and loss, the trio most recently released their fourth studio album, Common Ground, which hit number three on the Billboard Album Chart earlier this year. The rise and rise of Above & Beyond and their ever-growing ‘Anjunafamily’ of fans is underpinned by a single word: connection. In times of division, Jono, Tony and Paavo’s cult-like following is articulated by a simple mantra: music unites us all.

 

For over 15 years, Above & Beyond have championed rising stars of electronic music, with their iconic Anjunabeats and Anjunadeep labels throwing acts as diverse as Mat Zo, Audien, Arty, ilan Bluestone, Dusky, Lane 8, Yotto and Seven Lions into the limelight. With both imprints hosting sell-out tours and festival stages across the globe, what began as a meeting of minds at University has become a curatorial flagbearer for forward-thinking dance floors, from the mainstage to the after-hours warehouse.

 

At Anjunabeach Riviera Maya, Above & Beyond will perform three unique sets that will encompass the trio’s full range and vision: from ambient, to deep to peak time. Anjunabeats and Anjunadeep will each host their own showcases, promising an all-star lineup of talent, which will be revealed very soon, for this inaugural Anjunafamily beach getaway.

 

Above & Beyond commented: “Since ABGT250 at The Gorge we’ve been dreaming up ways to recapture the magic of bringing fans together from all over the world for unique experiences. We’re excited to be able to give our Anjunafamily the chance to meet up with like-minded souls and enjoy great music in such a beautiful location.”

 

Fans can stay at the event’s host resort, the Barceló Maya, or opt for one of several carefully selected tropical resorts and enjoy royal treatment all weekend long – all-inclusive food and drink, 24-hour concierge service, daily on-site activities, as well as offsite adventures like visiting Chichen Itza, zip-lining, snorkeling, excursions to Tulum and more.

 

Each night, concertgoers will descend upon a one of a kind venue, Playa Azul, which was created to both amaze and awe. Once inside guests will experience traditional and not-so-traditional entertainment as they wander to the main stage, which sits on a beautiful stretch of beach just feet from the Caribbean. Fans can also enjoy regional fare including tacos and nightly rotating vegetarian options mixed with some of your favorite snacks and desserts. During non-performance times, fans can enjoy a plethora of activities at each resort, all free of charge. A taste of the activities Barcelo guests can expect to see at the resort include tequila tastings, craft beer tastings, bowling, surfing contests, daily yoga sessions and more.
