“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 Background:

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. The first and only festival of its kind–celebrating the Latin community, beach vibes, and young Reggaeton & Latin music–Baja Beach 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. In 2019, the sold-out festival expanded to two days and 30,000 tickets, boasting headlining performances from Bad BunnyJ BalvinNicky Jam, Becky G, and the first-ever festival appearance by Ozuna. Expanding to three days, Baja Beach Fest returns to Rosarito on August 14th-16th.
