At Las Estacas, Morales, Mexico!
Canaval de Bahidorá is excited to present this year’s final lineup! With over 50 live acts, DJ sets and special performances set to transform the beautiful nature preserve of Las Estacas in to a community united in creativity, sustainability, expression and civic responsibility (#EnBahidorá). More than a music festival, Carnaval de Bahidorá (a.k.a Bahidorá) is an internal state of lucidity and consciousness. It is a place where festival goers connect with themselves, each other and the surroundings. It is the place from which creativity burgeon. This year, Carnaval de Bahidorá will take place on February 14 -16, 2020.
The eighth edition of Carnaval de Bahidorá will be bring the headliner — for the first time ever to Mexico — Erykah Badu, the queen of neo-soul! Backed by the incredible sounds of her live band of musicians from her hometown in Texas and lead by RC Williams, the composer and performer will bring to the stage her full reprutrar, with a setlist that goes from the revitalized hits of off the iconic debut Baduizm, to covers of classics like “Don’t Stop the Music” by Yarbrough & Peoples. And a succession of delicious moments of virtuosity and musical camaraderie that, in recent months, have filled the hearts of new fans and lifelong fans who enjoyed seeing her live on tour throughout South America, Europe and North America. And this February # EnBahidorá, finally, will Mexico’s turn!
Additionally, Bahidorá adds to the diversity of talent and sounds by rounding out the line up with Equiknoxx, La Radada, and DJ Tudo and Pauza. The constellation of diverse and abundant sounds is curated to fill festival goers with three days of new experiences. A kaleidoscope of exciting musical and visual experiences, capable of shaking mind, body and soul, without labels and with authenticity as the only flag.
The spirit of Carnaval de Bahidorá 2020 will be elevated by added performances from legends that served as the architects and ambassadors of the sounds of yesteryear include Habibi Funk, Analog Africa, Global Roots and Sassy J. Juxtaposed with the confirmation of Palms Trax and Josey Rebelle, the cherry topping to the already stellar electronic music lineup, which ranges from classics such as Masters At Work, Theo Parrish and Marcellus Pittman to the freshness of Channel Three, Chaos in the CBD and the epic between Avalon Emerson and Jasss.
The festival is also excited to announce the newest collaborations in the history of Carnival with ONDA MUNDIAL and Sunday Sunday. Both are key creative forces unique to Mexico City, and will add to the two very special moments #EnBahidorá: the opening and closing stages.
