“Only on its second consecutive year, the fest, nestled on the glistening beach of Rosarito, Mexico, has managed to become a player on the global festival scene” – Billboard

“Baja Beach Fest Was a Game-Changing Showcase of Latinx Excellence” – Vice

“If you’ve heard anything about Baja Beach Fest — the reggaeton and Latin hip-hop festival coming to Rosarito, Mexico’s historic Papas & Beer this weekend — you know this: It’s a party. Like a big, wild, sprawling, bucket-list rager. And while other festivals seek to widen their reach by bringing in digital artists, broadening the genres they focus on, or adding in a health component, Baja Beach Fest is staying true to its identity.” – UPROXX

“…the sold-out show is already a success: Ozuna and Bad Bunny are among the two-dozen acts scheduled to perform Friday and Saturday in this coastal resort town about 30 minutes south of the border.” – LA Times

The Announcement:

Bringing beach vibes and the best in Latin Music and Reggaeton, Baja Beach Fest is quickly becoming one of the country’s most vital live events. Responding to immense demand after a quick sell out of the original dates, Baja Beach Fest announces that the 2021 edition of the festival will add a second weekend. Occurring August 20-22, 2021, the new weekend signals a major expansion for the festival, which started as a single-day event in 2018, before expanding to two days in 2019 and three days in the postponed 2020 edition.

With a star-studded lineup headlined by the likes of Anuel AAJ Balvin, and Ozuna, Baja Beach Fest 2021 sold all tickets for its first weekend in less than one month. The success of the festival signals an eagerness for the return of live music, and demonstrates the passion and purchasing power of Latin Music fans. Though the lineup is a major draw, BBF sets itself apart with its unique vibe, offering a hyper-social beachside experience that virtual festivals can’t hope to replicate.

Returning to Rosarito Beach, MX on August 13th-15th2021, and occurring again the following week, the festival complements its A-list headliners with performances from Karol G, SechFarrukoBecky GKali Uchis, DalexJhay CortezGuaynaaEl AlfaLunay, DJ LuianJustin QuilesMyke TowersSky Rompiendo, and many more.
