Pollen Presents has had a landmark year defining and developing a new epoch of live music experiences.

Teaming up with some of the most renowned artists in contemporary music—such as Justin Bieber and J Balvin—for exclusive takeovers and one-of-a-kind destination fests, Pollen is positioning itself as the go-to travel experience brand.

So when Electric Zoo announced they'd be collaborating with Pollen last summer, the music community was ablaze with the prospect of bringing the iconic New York-based EDM spectacular to the idyllic beaches of Cancún. 

Electric Zoo Cancun - Oasis Stage

Originally slated to run April 7th to 11th, 2021, the festival moved forward last weekend at the Grand Oasis Cancún.

As is standard with many Pollen events, the festival was an all-inclusive experience with food and beverages, accommodations (standard, premium or luxury), pool parties, beach activities, morning yoga classes and, of course, access to all music events.

Electric Zoo Cancún featured DJ sets from headliners Diplo, Alesso, Steve Aoki, Kaskade, NGHTMRE, and Cash Cash, who performed across an array of venues: the Oasis, Beach Stage, and Havana Nightclub as well as La Vaquita, Dady'O, Abolengo, and The City Cancun, Latin America's biggest superclub.

Attendees were also treated to the signature melodic dubstep sounds of Adventure Club, as well as the thunderous bass music of Jessica Audiffred, Dirt Monkey, SVDDEN Death and more. Additional performances included JVNA, Cloonee, Cat Dealers, Midnight Kids, and Ace Aura.

Over 5,000 electronic dance music lovers flocked to the Grand Oasis Cancún to experience the highly curated production, which flaunted Electric Zoo's trademarks but incorporated the magic touch of Pollen's creative teams. The production included Moko jumbies and dancers in fluorescent costumes, a meticulously-designed tropical lounge, and shaded areas with massive disco balls.

As a part of the all-inclusive experience, attendees had the choice between five restaurants, an outdoor food market, two coffeeshops, and six bars, one of which was open 24 hours and offered an all-night taco stand. Clutch.

Pollen Presents' mission to "give people a bigger life" and create memories that will last a lifetime was in full effect through their commitment to its members, despite challenges presented by the weather. 

The weather caused beach stage closures on a couple of occasions, but Pollen's operations team was quick to transition to the massive Havana Nightclub inside the Grand Oasis Cancún, even providing up-to-the-minute updates via the official Electric Zoo Twitter account.
