ESTO ES TULUM



Author Valeria Cecolin | Date 27/09/2019

 

Read the interview with Javier Gonzalez, one of the founders of Esto es Tulum festival.

 

 

Hi Javier, where are you from?

Hi, it's a pleasure being with you. I was born in Madrid and I have been living in Ibiza for more than 10 years, but I consider myself a citizen of the world as, because of my profession as an artist, I keep going everywhere. Now my most important residences are between Spain and Mexico.

 

Tell us about Esto es Tulum. When and how did the idea of the festival come about?

The idea of the festival was born two years ago while doing a tour of Colombia, in the city of Pereira. The three of us, founders of the festival, gathered in a hotel room and put on the table the idea of making a festival that could have different features.

The highlight was to convey a message of awareness towards the human race with Mother Nature, to improve problems such as global warming, deforestation, plastic excess, misuse of chemicals that affect the planet, and so on, thus trying to make it self-sustainable once the festival was ready.

So three people from different countries (Mexico, Spain and Argentina) managed to reach a balance, and after changing things up a lot, we gave shape to what today is our festival, and in that same hotel room we created the name and logo of the actual Tulum festival.

 

What is your concept?

The concept of Esto es Tulum is to give the crowd different sensory experiences, not only a musical proposal, but something that integrates different areas combining nature, music, art, gastronomy, workshops and culture, creating a unique concept so that the national and international public can get to know the Mayan culture from another angle, using music as a thread, in an impressive natural setting located in the same jungle of the city of Tulum.

 

How does the festival take place?

Esto es Tulum is a project developed by Mexicans, from the founders, investors and developers, together with people from other countries, with the purpose of bringing the essence of the experience that represents the Tulum jungle to the best scenarios around the world, certain that there are no borders, thus totally including different ethnicities and beliefs, achieving a mystical connection, connecting good energies and the desire to do things with your heart.

 

What kind of places or clubs are you looking for your events?

Our first edition of the festival “Esto es Tulum” took place at the Cenote Casa Tortuga where more than 22,000 people attended, and enjoyed events with: Circoloco, The Martinez Brothers, Bedrock, Don not Sit on the Furniture, Luciano & Friends, Ants and artists like Blondish, Damian Lazarus, Ramp, Adam Port, Steve Lawler, Damian Lazarus, Behrouz, Andrea Oliva, Sasha, John Digweed, just to name a few.

This year the festival’s second edition will take place from 27th December 2019 to 13th January 2020, with 9 events aimed at giving the crowd the best shows in an unbeatable place.

 

But EET is not just music...

Indeed. At the same time we're trying to reduce the damage made to the planet and create an environmental, ecological, musical and social awareness.

In order to protect the natural environment and generate the least possible environmental impact, we provide for natural structures, our constructions and decorations are made with organic elements and still life, we transplant vegetation, clean up water layers, and the bathrooms have been specially built with biodigester systems.

We have the support of foundations that fight to improve the system and education, so we work together hoping that the message of taking care of the planet could get as far as possible.

During the festival, we also clean the town and beaches every Sunday, to raise awareness in the community and together create a world free of plastic.

In addition to all this, we offer free holistic workshops, with native instruments of the Riviera Maya as well as dance therapy, healing with ancestral sounds, acroyoga, cocoa ceremony and more.

 

Tell us about your events in the world.

In our first year, "Esto es Tulum" has travelled and continues travelling around a large part of the planet with events in places such as Ibiza, Marbella, Amsterdam, Paris, Santiago de Chile, Bogotá, Montevideo, Mexico City, London, Mykonos, Dubai, Buenos Aires and an extensive agenda to be confirmed as part of the World Tour.

 

Describe EET in three words.

Awareness, connection, mysticism.

 

Your favourite place in Tulum?

Cenote Casa Tortuga, undoubtedly.

 

Relationship with Ibiza

I could really tell you that Tulum reminds me of the golden years of Ibiza, those vibes and that light that you could feel in those years. Tulum is a paradise where the nature and energy of the Mayan lands are combined with that connection of the different cultures that makes this magic feel so particular.

 

What is the connection between Esto es Tulum and Ibiza?

To date, "Esto es Tulum" has been in Ibiza this summer with a residency every Wednesdays at Blue Marlin Ibiza with a wonderful response. We will soon be able to announce things that will happen in the next 2020 season and that will not leave anyone indifferent. At the moment this is top secret.

 

And, finally, are you Night or Day?

"Esto es Tulum" is a mixture of the two; we offer our crowd a wide variety of experiences so that those taking part at the festival can enjoy both day and night, and each of them can live an unforgettable experience.

 Hi Gennaro, it’s a great honour to have you in our magazine.What do you remember most about your beginnings in the culinary world?It's always necessary to contextualize the historical moment. My generation began to work collecting on the one hand what learnt at school, whose references were all French and depicted a very pompous cuisine, while on the other it saw the real world and discovered a kitchen in which mayonnaise and ketchup were mixed. In short, our cuisine had no identity: farfalle pasta with salmon, shrimp cocktail, and champagne risotto reigned supreme. In practice...
