Seth Troxler, Niño Arbol & More to Headline First-Ever BLACK Experience in Mexico City

Harrison Boyce

After kicking off BLACK, a music & arts project back in 2013, New York-based creative agency MATTE is taking the annual event for the first time ever to Mexico City.

The music, contemporary art and design celebration is set to take place at the abandoned Hotel Reforma in Mexico City's Zona Rosa neighborhood on March 4. Headliners include renowned DJ Seth Troxler, Brooklyn-based Thugfucker and local artists including Niño Arbol and BBY JSS.

"Mexico City, with its rich culture and unique spirit, is fast becoming one of the most exciting cities on the planet," MATTE co-founder Brett Kincaid said in a statement. "Like New York it has a mysterious allure, which is coarse in some ways and inspirationally elegant in others. This juxtaposition is reflective of BLACK as a concept and MATTE as a brand." 

Kincaid added: "We think it's the perfect home to export BLACK to, a world-renowned metropolis with a wide appreciation of music and art. BLACK resonates with a certain mind-set, it's not the shiniest of offerings, and we like that, and have a feeling the people in DF will feel the same."

Festivalgoers will also get to check out visual art by local, homegrown Mexican artists including Paolo Montiel, from CocoLab Mexico City, Ivan Abreu and Aldo Chaparro.
