Spanish rock fans can now put the 1st Riviera Nayarit Rock Festival on their calendar for June 9, 2018. The event will be held at the Hard Rock Hotel Nuevo Vallarta concert venue with the participation of Mexican band Panteón Rococó as the headliner, plus three local bands.

During the press conference held this past Monday at the host hotel, the event’s general manager, Israel Guerrero, said they’re expecting an adrenaline-charged evening in an extraordinary setting: the Riviera Nayarit.

Although Panteón Rococó is the headliner, he added they had also invited local bands Sal de Mar, Renglón and The Black Hardies to the stage; these bands have done very well in the area and they will be opening the show.

He added they are expecting approximately 6 thousand visitors—about 2,000 from other areas and 4,000 locals from the Puerto Vallarta and Bahía de Banderas area, all fans of this iconic national ska and rock fusion band that recently celebrated its twentieth anniversary.

“We have every intention of continuing to do this kind of event to benefit the destination but, more importantly, to benefit society, which has been looking for more entertainment and show space and, of course tourism,” he said.

Marc Murphy, director of the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) and the Bahía de Banderas Hotel and Motel Association (AHMBB), calculated a revenue of between 6 and 8 million pesos, taking into consideration that each outside visitor spends approximately 2 thousand pesos.

“The intention of the AHMBB and the CVB is to promote the Riviera Nayarit and gain recognition for Mexico’s Pacific Treasure, and what better way to do that but through music and the talent of these musicians here at the Hard Rock Hotel, right across from the water and enjoying the natural beauty of this tourism destination,” he said.

Claudia Guzmán, Director of Municipal Tourism and Development, was there representing the X Municipality of Bahía de Banderas and added that this kind of events can be an excellent platform to showcase the destination both on a national and an international level.

For her part, Gina Méndez, Sales Director at HRHV, invited everyone to “completely enjoy this experience” at a hotel that is 100% inspired by music.

Among the surprises prepared for the press conference was the presence of Paco Barajas, the trombone player for the band, who spoke with the media representatives and reiterated they are ready to play their top hits and get everybody “lit” with their high-energy music.

The 1st Riviera Nayarit Rock Festival will take place from 4:00 pm to 11:00 pm on Saturday, June 9th at the Hard Rock Hotel concert venue in Nuevo Vallarta.

The Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) and the Bahía de Banderas Hotel and Motel Association (AHMBB) reaffirm their commitment to the strategic promotion of the destination, pursuing opportunities and consolidating new markets to increase the number of incoming tourists, together with the support of the Government of the State of Nayarit via the Tourism Promotion Trust (Fiprotur).
