Finding their feet in the 1990s underground venues of the Gold Coast, Tijuana Cartel have honed their live set on some of Australia’s biggest stages dishing up an east meets west wonderland for those seeking sensory overload, euphoria, fat beats and heavy, bass-fuelled electronica. Tijuana Cartel’s sound is high-energy, guitar-driven, world music for indie kids.
The band has also been a familiar face on the international festival circuit, playing stages across Europe and the USA as well as Australia’s most loved events including Peats Ridge, Rainbow Serpent, Wave Rock, Splendour In The Grass, Byron Bay Bluesfest, Woodford, Falls Festival and many more.
“We blend all our personal influences together into our own sound, I’m into flamenco guitar and world sounds, whereas Carey is more into breakbeat and electro styles, Eamon has a jazz background and Sheila brings her DJ alter ego into the mix.” Paul George (Tijuana Cartel frontman)
Creating an electronic beats tapestry that will cut through to your very soul, Tijuana Cartel is the perfect accompaniment to the rich tapestry of offerings at any festival across the globe.

“Wanna know how good this song is? When I played it on House Party SIA tweeted me wanting to know what it was?! Crazy! And well deserved.” Nina Las Vegas (Triple J Unearthed)
