What good is life in paradise without the proper soundtrack?
It was with this quandary in mind that FOOTLOOSE set forth to fill the void within the nightlife in Playa del Carmen. After events such as The BPM Festival and Flying Circus the bar was inevitably raised elevating along with it the demand from artists to return and creating a constant scene that rivals that of Mexico City with only a mere fraction of its population. Our good friends at FOOTLOOSE Presents are bringing in the super talent that is Tigerskin and how awesome will this be for the little town of Playa Del Carmen!!
We are super excited to see our good friend Silky make his way down to La Santanera this weekend. In support, another good friend, Playa Del Carmen’s own Zuckre, half of The Wize Guys, will be hitting the decks for a jammed packed night of high quality music that will be sure to keep you dancing non stop. This is just another amazing event that FOOTLOOSE is putting on and we are ecstatic for this event.
