“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

After nearly two years spent inside, Baja Beach Fest has brought Latin Music and Reggaeton back to the shores of the Pacific once again. Still reeling after a dazzling return to form on weekend one, and hopefully a well deserved week of rest, fans and artists alike gathered back at Playas Rosarito for the first night of weekend two. Friday night lived up to the hype with incredible performances from genre giants Ozuna and Karol G. Earlier in the day Puerto Rican heartthrob Lunay had fans swooning with hits from his new album, Dominican stunner El Alfa’s dembow kept the heat high as the sun was setting over the crowd, and rising star Dalex flexed his Reggaeton chops.

Founded by Chris Den Uijl and Aaron Ampudia in 2018, Baja Beach Fest is well on its way to becoming an institution in Rosarito and the music industry at large. The rest of the weekend promises performances from the likes of J BalvinAnuel AAFarrukoSechBecky G, and many others.

When Ozuna and Mark B sang “El día está pa’ playa y arena, la vamos a pasar muy bien” in 2016, they very well may have been foreseeing the launch of the Baja Beach Fest two years later. After a remarkable inaugural year,  Baja Beach Fest is back for its sophomore year, celebrating the Latin community, beach vibes, and young Latin trap/reggaeton music. The first and only festival of its kind –– Baja Beach Fest Fest is held on the sand of the oceanfront resort of Rosarito, creating an all-encompassing experience of music and coastal feels. It was imagined into existence by two friends, Chris Den Uijl and Aaron Ampudia, and dedicated to the local community who wanted to bring the world’s most streamed artists together for a weekend of music. The 2021 edition of Baja Beach Fest brings an expansion from one two-day weekend to two three-day weekends, and promises performances from headliners Anuel AA, J Balvin, Ozuna, and Karol G.
