The Riviera Nayarit is ready to welcome the third edition of the RHA Festival 2019 on April 26-27, the much-anticipated electronic music fest that brings the best of the best in house music from around the world.
The stage will once again be set up very close to the beach at the Marina Riviera Nayarit in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, where attendees can dance under the warm night sky while they enjoy the ocean breeze.
RHA is one of the most important music festivals on the destination’s billboard; this is its third consecutive year with a goal of boosting tourism in the state of Nayarit just before the summer season.
Official event sponsors Riviera Nayarit and W Punta de Mita are expecting anywhere between 2,500 and 3,000 people per day.
Bedouin, Guy Gerber, Lee Burridge and Nic Fanciulli are the headliner DJs, with a secondary lineup of excellent artists including Lauren Lane, and Liam Fitzgerald.
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.
