Ganzo X Is Taking Over Hotel El Ganzo

If you’re ready for an outstanding takeover, get ready to celebrate at Gazo X! To celebrate 10 amazing years, Hotel El Ganzo is announcing a crazy weekend takeover on Halloween Weekend. If you want to party in San José del Cabo, Mexico, then join the mix of live music, poolside DJ sessions, beach parties, wellness activities, art installations, and gourmet culinary programming. Sounds like a winning weekend!

Hotel El Ganzo is a 69-room, beachfront hotel that stands at the marina of an old fisherman’s wharf in La Playa in San José del Cabo. The hotel was meant to be a huge focal point for art and culture. As a result, there is a wonderful place that fuses natural beauty and forward-thinking hospitality to create an immersive art and music experience. El Ganzo remains an amazing locale with a foothold in the arts. There is so much to do and see in the area such as live art installations, an in-house recording studio, and tons of musicians playing onsite. 

This weekend celebration will be centered around the anniversary on Saturday at Jardín Escultórico – Marina Puerto Los Cabos. Guests can look forward to a headlining performance from Khruangbin, a musical trio from Texas that is known for their electrifying live performances and a variety of collaborations including Leon Bridges, Paul McCartney, and Vieux Farka Touré. It’ll be a spectacular time!

There are several additional artists on the main lineup which include Will Holland’s DJ alias Quantic, the Jamaican-inspired sounds of Pachyman, the live electronic project The Human Experience, and more to be announced. The Main Event will also feature local food, an open-air art market, installations, and an afterparty at a secret location. Highlights on the music front will also include a performance from Jupiter & Okwess, the acclaimed band from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. This will take place on Friday at Ganzo Beach Club and feature additional musical acts and a fresh & spicy cocktail bar.

But hold your hat because the event continues at the Crania Season III re-opening event, welcoming another season of Burning Man-inspired delights in its unique beachside locale. Crania is located next to Hotel El Ganzo and is a beloved space for music, art, wellness, food, consciousness, and environmental sustainability. This will feature music from esteemed Los Angeles DJ Marques Wyatt, the unique sounds of Mexican artist Rocco Desentis, and more to be announced, along with a special seasonal dinner option.

We’re not stopping yet because El Ganzo has proven their dedication to the arts for the past ten years, and they’ve no signs of stopping yet! There are three additional artists coming to join and share their own creative footprint. Furthering El Ganzo’s ten-year dedication to championing the art of all mediums, Ganzo X will welcome three Artists In Residence to its creative footprint. The program includes live techno-animism installations and interventions from the Tokyo-born and Mexico City-based artist Yupica, which will include ricegraph, animated prismatic sculptures, and multidimensional projections. Then we’ve got some local Mexican talent rounding out the lineup with Raudo (Helena Garza y Bernardo Pérez), giving attendees the chance to view Immersive experiences generated by sonic exploration and VR installation. Finally, the lineup is finished out by David Tzontli, who will showcase scientific life-size replicas of dinosaurs covered in art, highlighting provocative and sacred statements of culture and ancestral knowledge.

El Ganzo has always been known as a hideout for the creatively inclined and a hotbed for high-level inspiration. We’ve already mentioned the underground recording studio in the basement, which has hosted some major artists such as The Whitest Boy Alive, L’imperatrice, Anderson Paak, Siddhartha, Rubio, and many more, a beachside nest for all kinds of irreverent creative music works.
