RHA stands for “flowing water” in Wixárika, the language of the indigenous tribes living in Mexico’s Nayarit area. “Flowing” refers to their travel through life. Water flows, water evaporates, water turns to rain and then it returns.

The festival had its genesis in the Riviera Nayarit towards the end of 2016 thanks to a group of underground and house music aficionados from the United States and Mexico. RHA made itself known in the summer of 2017, showcasing the best in house and techno music from around the world while also incorporating the native Huichol culture and a privileged location on the shores of Banderas Bay.

Over the past two years RHA has featured international legends including Claptone, Green Velvet, Luciano, Dimitri of Pariz, Sandy Rivera, Rodríguez, Jr., Charlotte de Witte, Justin Martin, Lee Foss, Purple Disco Machine, Walker and Royce, Doc Martin, Marques Wyatt, and many more.

The Riviera Nayarit offers world-class attractions, surfing, fishing, a complete lineup of water sports, boat tours to the Islas Marietas (protected by the UNESCO), and 23 picturesque villages by the beach framed by the deep blue waters of the Pacific and the spectacular peaks of the Sierra Madre.

The promotional work done by the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) and the Bahía de Banderas Hotel and Motel Association (AHMBB), with the support of the Government of the State of Nayarit via the Tourism Promotion Trust (Fiprotur), is amplified by the arrival of celebrities who receive extensive media coverage and position the destination as one of the best in the world.
