Taking The Voladores de Papantla to Glastonbury Festival started as a dream.
Four team members from Glastonbury´s The Common area, including myself, flew from London to Mexico City airport, and from there we drove to the Cumbre Tajin Festival to see if the idea could work and become a reality.
At Cumbre Tajin we were treated incredibly good, not only did we see the ritual of the Voladores de Papantla, but got to meet with the spiritual teachers, we got a pre-hispanic massage, we enjoyed the live concerts, we exchanged ideas with the organizers of Cumbre Tajin Festival and and last but not least we tasted exquisite Mexican food every day!
The next step was to invite to the Cumbre’s Tajin’s team to the Glastonbury Festival!
