Inaugural conference will be held in Riviera Maya on 3-9 August
Mexico is getting its own WMC/ADE/IMS-like electronic music festival-cum-conference this year, with the launch of Cancun Music Week, which will take place at the Breathless spa and resort in Riviera Maya.
Full details of the programme are still to be announced, but expect the usual mix of seminars, workshops, technology showcases, keynote speakers and panel discussions by day, and plenty of party action by night. The conference will kick off with a daytime, Grand Opening Party, and there'll be more pool parties throughout the week.
Staged by events management company XKYY Entertainment, with travel packages put together in association with local travel agents, the event is supported by funding from the Tourism Promotion Council and Hotel Association of Cancun & Riviera Maya.
We'll bring you more details of the week's schedule when we have them. In the meantime, early bird tickets are due to go on sale next week (21 January, to be precise), so keep an eye on the festival website for details.
