(Rosarito Beach, MX) – Three days of fun, sun, music and friends, August 19, 20, 21, 2016 at the 5th Annual Baja Blues Fest. Our 3 Day Event Pass is a bargain at $45 (Pre-sale). You can also buy raffle tickets at the event to win our exciting prizes!

What do you get when you take a group of world-class blues musicians, a team of dedicated board members and then mix in over 70 passionate volunteers? What you get is yet another amazingly fun and entertaining weekend: the 5th Annual Baja Blues Fest.

This year’s lineup features double headliners: John Nemeth who has been honored with two Blues Music Awards for Soul Blues Male Artist in 2014 and Soul Blues Album in 2015; plus the legendary blues guitarist/singer and former member of John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers, Coco Montoya. Also storming the stage with their formidable style of Chicago Blues is Chris James & Patrick Rynn. Also adding to this year’s musical buffet is one of San Diego’s favorite Zydeco and blues bands, The Bayou Brothers, complimented by the Queen of Boogie-Woogie, Sue Palmer.

Last but not least, our all-time favorite host band, The Backwater Blues Band with special guest Deanna Bogart (back by popular demand), local party-starters JL Blues and the Baja All-Stars, and a return performance by percussionist LA Smith.

The festival is a labor of love for our staff and volunteers who do an incredible amount of work – everything you can imagine: ticketing, accounting, contracts, site logistics and management, production support, vendor coordination, travel and accommodation, marketing, administration and much more, all coming together to deliver the very best family experience we can offer as we celebrate our 5th year.

We are immensely proud of the contribution we’ve been able to make in the local community. Festival proceeds will again benefit the Friends of the Library, Los Angelitos Orphanage, BECA and La Mision Children’s Fund.

Experience 3 days of pure blues bliss surrounded by the gorgeous sun and sands of Rosarito Beach. Don’t delay! If you love the blues, make plans to head south for our 5th Annual Baja Blues Fest at the world famous Rosarito Beach Hotel & Resort ~ (get your rooms now ~ the hotel will be sold out soon).

But best of all you’ll be helping children in Baja. Be There!
