As the world’s top trending vacation destination, there’s no doubt Tulum has serious star power, but now this gem on the Mexican Caribbean Sea is set to attract even more high-profile international guests to the 2019 Art With Me Festival, April 24-28. Read on to see what the festival has in store this year and how Tulum is turning art into eco-tourism.
“Tulum, the coastal town on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, has been a magnet for young tastemakers from all over, whose hotels, restaurants, and shops have come to define a new aesthetic”, wrote Travel + Leisure. “Those who have visited know that this creative energy is palpable – and now, there’s a way to be part of it”.
Tulum Art Festival 2019
Combining art, music, culture and sustainability, this is only the sensational new festival’s second year, after debuting last year to rave reviews, with Forbes calling it “a world-class event,” and Marie Claire dubbing it a “mini Burning Man on the beach.” The itinerary is packed with music, art, culture, food and wellness, with a focus on sustainability and environmental issues.
“In its inaugural year, I witnessed Art With Me bring together over 25 local businesses for a common goal”, said founder David Graziano – who has opened boutique hotels Ahau, Alaya and Villa Pescadores since moving to Tulum in 2013 – in an interview with Forbes. “My hope is that [the festival] will become a reference point for tourism and lifestyle travel in Tulum, where people don’t just travel to Tulum for vacation, but also play an active role in protecting it, now and for future generations”.
The Art With Me Tulum Festival 2019 will feature music from Jan Blomqvist & The Band, Bedouin, and Monolink, with art exhibits, large-scale art installations and programming on topics like sustainability, wellness, food and family, as well as the role each plays when inspiring change. In fact, this year’s theme will be “Change Starts With Me”, and the festival aims to bring greater awareness to environmental challenges, finding solutions for building a sustainable future.
Art With Me tickets for this exciting 2019 beachfront Tulum festival are available for purchase online and more programming announcements will be coming soon!
