ILLENIUM’s Destination Festival, Ember Shores, Returns to Cancún for Massive Sophomore Year

Having made its debut in Cancún last year, ILLENIUM’s idyllic destination music festival, Ember Shores, recently returned for yet another successful event.

Bringing a sweltering wave of melodic bass to the seaside Mexican destination, Ember Shores took place over three days and nights from December 2-4. Ravers making the trip took in three unique stages and an expertly curated lineup that featured a number of electronic music’s most exciting trailblazers.

Held at the luxurious Four Star Fiesta Americana Condesa and the Four Diamond Paradisus Resort, Ember Shores was an all-inclusive experience. The festival’s itinerary and all amenities were taken care of, and attendees didn’t have to sweat about the usual festival stage conflicts. Ember Shores’ programming took them from the poolside Phoenix Stage during the day to the Ember Stage on the beach after the sun had set before they enjoyed late-night afterparties at the indoors Atrium Stage.
