Poison Festival is a psytrance festival that takes place in Huauchinango, Mexico.  It takes place over the weekend of Día de Muertos, or Day of the Dead.  The name of the festival says it all... this is a dark festival.

In 2018, when I attended, there were 3 stages, all psytrance.  Music blasts non-stop for 72 hours straight.  I witnessed some of the craziest Mexican psytrancers I've ever seen at this festival. It rained for 3 days straight.  The dance floors and paths were literally mud holes deep enough to swallow your shoe. But this didn't stop them from partying right through. People were literally camped in the mud at the front of the stage.

The rain made it difficult for me to actually enjoy this festival. But hey, I managed to get a few cool shots:
