The 8 Best Tulum Music Festivals To Experience in 2022

While Tulum may be famous for its beautiful beaches, lush jungle, Tuluminatis, and Instagram influencers – it’s also equally famous for its music festivals. From Deep House, Techno, Progressive to Electro, and more – there’s something for every electronic music lover here.

Tulum has been a popular spot over the past couple of years for music festivals, especially during the Covid pandemic. However, since some festivals have been cancelled such as Departure in January of this year, there has been a decrease in new festivals this year.

So, you may notice we’ve included festivals from Cancun and Playa Del Carmen, and seeing as they’re so close (45 minutes to an hour and a half away) it only makes sense to include them on our list.

Best Tulum Music Festivals

Zamna Tulum

Tulum music festivals


Dates: September 3rd, 2022. December 31, 2022 – Jan 14th, 2023.

Possibly the most famous music festival in Tulum, Zamna is a yearly event, featuring world-renowned DJs playing the best techno, house, and electronic music. Known for its impressive production value with impressive light shows, stage decorations, and an incredible atmosphere that is unforgettable.

The next Zamna even features Boris Brejcha in September of 2022 at the  Zamna Tulum Boutique Hotel. Started in 2017, it’s now one of the biggest music festivals in Mexico. The name Zamna comes from a Mayan god who found Chichen Itza and called himself the son Hunab Kú (The only true god). The 2022-23 holiday season is bound to be just as spectacular as the previous years, so book your tickets now!

Sundream Tulum


Dates: TBA 2023

Sundream Tulum music festival is associated with Rüfüs Du Sol, the popular electronic music group from Australia. Having played all over Mexico, including Mexico City and Tulum in March of 2022 at the amazing Papaya Playa Project venue, they are slated to make a return later this year or next year in 2023.

Horyzon Festival

The Horyzon Festival is a recently announced festival that will take place from October 28th to November 19th, also at the Zamna Tulum Boutique Hotel. The event is the brainchild of the same creators as the previously mentioned Zamna Festival.

With renowned international artists such as Tecno DJ Charlotte De Witte and Camelphat, this event is sure to be spectacular, spanning four consecutive weekends. Tickets are currently selling out fast.



Dates: TBA 2023

Arguably one of the best electronic lineups for Tulum music festivals with big names such as Black Coffee, Camelphat, Yotto, and Nora En Pure all coming down to the beautiful beach town for this epic 5-day event. Unfortunately, it was cancelled last minute due to increased Covid restrictions implemented by the government. That didn’t stop acts from hosting their own private parties in their own venues. Whether or not it’s to return next year remains to be seen.

Day Zero Festival


Dates: TBA 2023

Another popular recurring festival in Tulum with an epic lineup, venue, and atmosphere. Originally started in 2012 to celebrate the Mayan Calendar: “A cosmic collision of ancient tradition and forward-thinking electronic music heralded the birth of Day Zero on the final day of the Mayan Calendar in 2012. The result has been six sessions of sonic wonder and convergence of party-people from every corner of the globe around the scion of Damian Lazarus. Deep within the mystical jungle of Tulum, this community of ritualistic nomads gathers before some of the world’s most exciting selectors and live acts for an eighteen-hour journey.”

Hosted in the middle of the Mayan jungle, the Day Zero festival features acts such as Nina Kravitz, Dj Tennis, The Martinez Brothers, and more. They also have events in other places around the world, with the next one being in Masada, Israel in September.

Holy Ship! Wrecked


Dates: December 13-17, 2022

Now happening in Mexico for the second year in a row (previously hosted by the Dominican Republic), the ‘Holy Ship! Wrecked’ festival is a popular EDM cruise festival which is on the water – obviously. With luxury accommodation, all-inclusive amenities, and popular acts such as Lane 8, Zeds Dead, Dom Dolla, and many more – it’s definitely one of the most unique and exciting festivals in Tulum and Maya Riviera. Good luck finding tickets though, as it’s already sold out for December.

Ember Shores (Cancun)


Dates: December 2-4, 2022

A new festival on the beaches of Cancun featuring Illenium and other similar electronic acts. “This three-day destination experience at the all-inclusive Four-Diamond Paradisus Resort in Cancun, Mexico will feature three unique sets from ILLENIUM, multiple stages (including a main stage directly on the beach), and a curated lineup catered specifically for Illenials. There will be no shortage of non-stop fun and relaxation.”

Electric Zoo (Cancun)


Dates: December 1-5, 2022

An event also held in New York later the same month, “Electric Zoo Adventures returns to Cancún for four days of tropical excursions, pristine beaches, buzzing pool parties, and stunning headline performances. Ditch winter and join the dance institution in paradise this December.”

They promise acts such as Alesso, Diplo, and Deadmau5 but it remains to be seen how the event will pan out the closer we get to the dates.

We Are Mexico (Cancun)


Dates: Nov 19 – 26, 2022

“We Are FSTVL heads to Cancún, Mexico for a week of top-tier house music and coastal adventures in sunny paradise, from jungle zipline tours and buzzing pool parties to headline beachfront performances, superclub takeovers, and more.”
