Two people hospitalised in stabbings at Mexico’s Esto Es Tulum festival

Two people were taken to hospital after being stabbed at an ANTS party during Mexico’s Esto Es Tulum festival in the early hours Monday morning. One has been left in a critical condition with a knife wound to the neck.

The two Mexican nationals were reportedly attacked by local cartel members who mistook them for drug dealers, according to Quadratin Quintana Roo.

The party was taking place at the the Cenote Casa Tortuga venue, as part the multi-event Esto Es Tulum festival, which started on December 27 and is due to close January 11.

In the wake the attack, the festival cancelled the Vatos Locos event which was scheduled to take place on Tuesday night, January 7
