The production credentials of The Brooklyn Mirage, Cityfox and Pollen need no introduction, fans heading to Playa del Carmen in January can expect to discover a new Mirage in the Mayan Riviera sunshine. This venue will be custom designed and built for those attending Departure, alongside two further new venue space build outs, making this a unique and exclusive experience for all in attendance. Since the dawn of time, humans have celebrated the earth’s revolution around the sun and this cycle of new beginnings is intrinsic to our circadian rhythm and the cadence that governs the natural world. We celebrate this cycle with Departure.
This will all be set across luxury accommodations at a string of premium hotels including The Grand Hyatt, The Thompson, The Hilton, Panama Jack and Yucatan resort, all serving gourmet food & beverages. The unique experience eschews larger crowds for something far more intimate, combining the stress-free environment of high-end travel with the thrill and adventure of a one-of-a-kind festival.
Beyond the music itself, travelers heading to Mexico can revive themselves each morning with daily yoga and meditation at the beachfront Grand Hyatt, swim laps in each of the hotels’ swimming pools and eat their way through the gourmet food options available. Daily excursions are available to purchase, from cenote trips, to boat parties, scuba diving, jet skiing, hiking in ruins and more.
Perched on the Caribbean coastline on Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula, the bright yellow sand and azure sea of Playa del Carmen make it an ideal destination for some winter sun. A short drive from Cancun International Airport, guests will have accommodation options at five different hotels, with options for all budgets.
Departure represents a new standard in music and travel. An immersive experience with the world’s leading names in house and techno, partnering with behemoths in the North American scene, it’s the chance to experience once-in-a-lifetime performances in unparalleled settings.
