Saturday 1st and Sunday 2 next April AX Ceremony 2023 will take place at Bicentennial Park of Mexico, where artists like Rosalía or Travis Scott will make each of the stages vibrate with their the most recognized hits.
Considering this, GlobeLiveMedia Mexico spoke with Monse Castera, director of social communication for the festival, who explained how this edition will seek to be respectful towards people of sexual diversity and participants with disabilities.
“We focused on the fact that it is not a speech, but that it is only represented and that it shows in everything, from how we select the programming, until you have a non-binary toiletuntil creating the social ceremony initiative,” he began to say.
In this sense, Castera explained that this year the festival will have non-binary toilets, as well as HIV tests and many other things.
“A percentage of ticket sales goes to Fondo Semillas (feminist organization), in addition, the festival is imbued with the way in which we select talents, in the last editions we have at least two trans talents”, commented the organizer.
Regarding the implementation of non-binary toilets, Monse explained that additional courses will be given to the staff who work in the event, to prevent any type of discrimination or aggression.
“Training is given to the whole team where explains inclusion, diversitywho our audience is, because there’s no point in having non-binary restrooms if the security people or the people who take care of the restrooms don’t know what it is, we make the team,” said he said.
Regarding people with disabilities, the Director of Communication pointed out that the site where the AX Ceremony will take place is accessible and other measures have also been planned to guarantee the best experience.
“The Parc du Bicentenaire has facilities for people with disabilities that other festivals don’t have, there are ramps, it’s all flat (...) yes there is a section for the disabled so that they can view the broadcasts in an easier way for them,” he added.
Finally, Castera told a little about how the organizers of this festival choose the artists who will be part of it.
“Each lineup is a photo, a portrait of the times we live in, so nothing but musical trends is already different. It’s funny that later they tell us: ‘Bring Rosalía’ and she has already come or brings many talents that we have already brought, ifWe are always in the latest trends. You can go see talents it is a guarantee that they will grow a lot, but you also have a Travis Scott or a Tokischa”, he assured.
Among the most anticipated figures are Travis Scottwhich could feature some of his greatest hits like Highest in the room, Bad Mood / Shit On You o Coffee Bean.
Likewise, Rosalía will make the participants dance with some of her songs such as With Height, SAOKO, I x you, you x me.
Other key characters will be Wicked West Indian, Julieta Venegas, NSQK, La Goony Chonga, Zizzy, Foudeqush, Junior H, Eme MalaFe, Moderate, Tokischa, Tayhana Club Latinx Experience, among many others.
