After postponing last year’s edition due to concerns over the spread of COVID-19, Zamna Festival made a successful return to Tulum in 2021, bringing along some of the most celebrated names in house and techno music.
Last year’s marathon edition was set to kick off on December 31st and run for a total of 17 days, while this year organizers brought together a more modest—yet still incredible—experience with six thematic events over 10 days.
Throughout Zamna 2021, fans and attendees found themselves in the epicenter of the bustling electronic scene in Tulum, enjoying DJ sets from headliners Claptone, Tale Of Us, and Black Coffee, among others, as well as performances from some of dance music’s most promising underground talents.
Kicking off Zamna on New Years Eve, UPPERGROUND was presented by red-hot techno duo ARTBAT, who shared the stage with BRAEV, Fred Lenix, Magdalena and more. Masked house music star Claptone continued the party on January 2nd at The Masquerade event, backed by the likes of Purple Disco Machine, Eagles & Butterflies and Tom & Collins.
