Festication (Disco Donnie Presents + Feyline) continues to evolve the destination festival landscape, constantly innovating to deliver exquisite festival experiences with top-tier production and sets from today’s best headliners. Excision has not only cemented himself as an iconic electronic music artist, but in doing so, he has created a super fan base of Headbangers around his “X” brand. Within Excision Presents, he also produces and curates large-scale global touring productions and music festivals, including the prehistoric themed dinosaur festival Lost Lands, the renowned Bass Canyon festival set in the beautiful Gorge Amphitheater, and Paradise Blue with Festication which debuted this past April.
Today, Excision Presents and Festication are thrilled to announce the second installment of Paradise Blue, taking place at the sun-kissed all-inclusive four-diamond Paradisus & Fiesta Americana Resorts of Cancun, MX April 28-30th, 2023.
Paradise Blue 2023 will bring Headbangers together from around the world for a dream escape. This three-day destination experience will feature three performances from Excision, including what will surely be an epic set on his birthday, April 29th. Excision has also curated the lineup, packing the weekend with bass shattering sets from heavy hitters like Rusko, ATLiens, Yookie, Sullivan King, Habstrakt, Riot Ten and some of the brightest up and coming artists in the scene like Versa, Level Up, Zingara, and plenty more.
“Every Headbanger deserves to experience bass on the beach! Year 1 was an absolute dream and year 2 is shaping up to be even more special. It’s truly a beautiful place to throw down to some loud heavy bass music, so if you weren’t there, we would love to have you out! See you in the whirlpool!” – X
Paradise Blue will offer daily beach activities along with exciting, adventurous, and cultural off-site opportunities including trips to Tulum and Mexico’s famous cenotes, catamaran sailing, ancient Tulum ruins tours, and scuba diving. Excursions are optional add ons and transportation to and from the resort is included.
The inaugural edition of Paradise Blue was a giant success, described as “a refreshing dose of bass music” where headbangers came together to rage to three days of thunderous bass music from powerhouse artists like Must Die!, Vampa, and three sets from Excision himself. Fans even had the opportunity to enjoy once in a lifetime excursions with artists like Ray Volpe & Yookie, and Kompany.
Paradise Blue is part of a series of destination festivals and artist-curated events (including Illenium’s Ember Shores and Kaskade’s Sun-Soaked) presented by Festication, a brand founded by Disco Donnie Presents, and Feyline, who share a combined 75 years of experience in live events and festivals, specializing in bringing unforgettable super-fan experiences to life!
