The first-ever RHA Festival debuts in the Riviera Nayarit from June 30-July 1, 2017 with some of the top exponents of electronic house music who will spin their best beats in Mexico’s Pacific Treasure.

“This is the first time this festival is being held anywhere in the world,” said Marc Murphy, Managing Director of the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau. “The organizers picked the Riviera Nayarit because we have everything they needed and it’s the trendiest destination in Mexico.”

The RHA Festival is organized by DJs from Mexico and the United States who saw in the Riviera Nayarit the ideal place to unveil this new project, which they are sure will be repeated in the years to come.

The starring DJ on Friday, June 30th will be Claptone, while Green Velvet will headline on Saturday, July 1st, closing out the event. Among the invitees are DJs from the United States, Mexico, Canada, Germany, Poland, Argentina and France, including names such as Dimitri From Paris, Purple Disco Machine, Catz n Dogz, Walker Royce, Doc Martin and Sandy Rivera.

Space is limited to approximately five thousand attendees per day and the music will play nonstop for 12 hours from 3 p.m. to 3 a.m.

There are five kinds of tickets on sale from general admission to VIP and even some that include accommodations.

In order for the community to benefit economically from the event, area citizens will be selling local products during the festival.

RHA stands for “flowing water” in Wixárika, or Huichol, the local indigenous language. For more details on this electronic music festival visit
