Among all the EDC franchises, EDC Mexico feels the most overlooked and least talked about. Located in Mexico City, the city is full of culture, taking the time to explore the city is a must. The location is densely packed with varieties of food, art, and plenty of things to do.
The crowd at EDC Mexico is full of life and uplifting energy, and the lineup properly matches that. Per usual, the festival features high-quality production and art installations. With a wide variety of genres and talent, the festival attracts over 150,000 attendees.
EDC Mexico brings attendees the full EDC experience at a fraction of a cost. Tickets can be bought for lower than $200USD, and local hotel and AIRBNB prices are also significantly less expensive. For people who are hesitant to fully commit to EDC Las Vegas, this is a budget-friendly option. Despite being at a fraction of the cost of Vegas, the lineup for EDC Mexico is just as star studded. See below for our list of artists to see this year!
