Tulum techno party cancelled after two attacked

Tulum, Q.R. — After an incident at a Tulum techno party that left at least two injured, event organizers have announced the cancellation of the festival.

Through social networks, event organizers of Esto Es Tulum (EET), which was being held at Cenote Casa Tortuga, have announced the cancellation of the event after two event-goers, apparently Mexican national tourists, were attacked with a knife.

According to the police report, the attack occurred during the early morning hours of January 6 when at least two young people were assaulted with a knife inside the Cenote Casa Tortuga, which is allegedly owned by Tulum Mayor, Victor Mas Tah.

Apparently, the attack occurred when the pair were confused by local criminals as being competing drug dealers. Both victims were treated on-site by paramedics before being rushed to hospital. One is said to be in serious condition and the other, stable.

The EET event began December 27 and was to run until January 9. This was the second year of the Esto Es Tulum music festival.
