RÜFÜS DU SOL Sundream Tulum 2022
Sundream Tulum, an immersive destination event on the idyllic white-sand beaches of Tulum, Mexico, is being announced by RÜFÜS DU SOL and Papaya Playa Project. Taking place March 10-13 at Papaya Playa Project, Sundream sees the Grammy-nominated live-electronic band invite their favorite artists in the world and a select group of fans to one of North America’s most beautiful locales.
RÜFÜS has set out to create otherworldly destinations for fans to enter through their music and live shows since their inception. The band’s name is meant to conjure up an otherworldly setting characterized by emotion and immersion. Sundream Tulum takes this ethos to new heights by creating an intimate weekender that flows from DJ sets to live performances, from day to night, and from music to wellness.
The Sundream musical lineup is topped off by two RÜFÜS performances, showcasing both the live and DJ sets that have come to define the project. They are joined by their comrades in emotive dance music Bob Moses (Club Set), fellow live electronic icon Monolink, Keinemusik’s Adam Port, and Copehagen’s WhoMadeWho.
Performances handcrafted as a seamless soundtrack for the four-day boutique experience round out the bill. Cassian, a RÜFÜS collaborator, is joined by Magdalena, cinematic Rotterdam producer Eelke Kleijn, Australian live wunderkinds Lastlings, Mayan Warrior mainstay Mira, and new Rose Avenue signee Paraleven. Sante Vie, a Mexican band, will perform alongside Carlita, a Life and Death newcomer, and others.
Sundream will have the perfect container thanks to the Papaya Playa Project. Papaya Playa is one of Tulum’s most famous beach clubs and hotels, known for bridging hospitality, community, sustainability, art, and culture. Beautiful beachfront villas and casitas, finely tuned culinary programming, and immersive wellness and cultural experiences can all be attested to by those in the know. Guests can get lost in the Star Collector, a Mexican folklore-inspired art installation, visit the tour center to plan excursions to local ruins or cenotes, enjoy bespoke cocktails on one of Tulum’s most exclusive beaches, and much more.
Ticket holders will be able to make reservations for a variety of wellness programming during the day in order to prepare their bodies and minds for the night ahead. Yoga, breathwork, meditation, and more will be available, providing a portal into the state of mind that RÜFÜS experienced while writing their most recent album. On Sunday, there will be a day of recovery activities aimed at sending attendees home feeling rejuvenated. More details will be released later.
The news follows a string of accomplishments for RÜFÜS DU SOL, including the release of their Surrender LP on Rose Avenue and Warner Records. This past weekend, the band added another Los Angeles victory to their resume, performing in front of 70,000 fans at the LA Banc of California stadium over three nights. These performances followed a three-night stand at Red Rocks in August, as well as headlining appearances at Austin City Limits, Outsidelands, III Points, and Governor’s Ball, as well as appearances on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and The Late Late Show with James Corden.
RÜFÜS DU SOL’s dedicated community of adventurers and music lovers are invited to celebrate beneath the sun and moon in one of the world’s most magical destinations, Sundream Tulum. A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hear from some of dance music’s most adored icons and curators.
