- Over 15 local, national and foreign artists and groups will be donating their time at three concerts in the Cultural Capital of the Riviera Nayarit; entrance to the event at the Plaza del Sol in San Pancho is totally free.
As happens every year, the last weekend in February is dedicated to the San Pancho Music Festival. This year marks its 16th anniversary with concerts on two stages at sunset on February 26th, 27th and 28th at the Plaza del Sol.
The event includes performances by Andy Crawford, Assel Bainazarova, Chas Eller, David Fisher, Fausto Robles, Frida’s Eyebrow, Huanacaxtle Music, James Gelfan, Jeff Oster, Jenna Mammina, Joe Hadlock, Juan-Ted, Los Compas, Maria The Mexican and Martín Montenegro, among others.
“The most important thing about this festival is the musicians practically donate their talent and this isn’t the norm—even though in San Pancho this happens because of its unique vibe,” commented Marc Murphy, Managing Director of the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau. “We invite everyone to enjoy the music but also to consume our local products and take home event souvenirs.”
The event is possible thanks to the generosity of the musicians, but also thanks to the work put in by the organizers as well as the support of the volunteers and the sponsors, among them, the Riviera Nayarit CVB Groups and Events department.
Last years concerts welcomed three thousand people, making it one of the largest crowds to attend the festival since its inception. As usual, there will be plenty of stands around the plaza selling food, beverage, arts and crafts and other local products.
