The San Pancho Music Festival Thanks You All..!


Thank you! • Thank you!! • Thank you!!!

We wish to thank all the amazing musicians that donated their talents to help make the 2016 San Pancho Music Festival our best festival yet! We are honored to have had you grace our stage, and hope that the enthusiastic crowds that were in attendance each night were an indication that EVERYONE appreciated your efforts!

We also wish to thank our incredible volunteers, who in many cases sacrificed their own enjoyment of the event, in order to help things run as smoothly as possible, from behind the scenes. We simply could not have done it without you!

Our sincere gratitude to those that contributed monetarily to the Music Festival. The festival is entirely non-profit so your contributions are not only critical to it’s success, but also it’s future. To our sponsors, and “friends of the festival” that stepped up to the plate to help us out above and beyond, we send you our heartfelt thanks! To the folks that opened their homes to provide accommodations to musicians from out of town, we wish to pass along the rave reviews that we received from artists saying that your hospitality made their stay in San Pancho all the more special, and personal.

Special thanks go out to Gilles Ste-Croix, of El Circo de Los Niños, for sharing his sound gear with us. That helped us make this the best “sounding” festival yet. We also wish to acknowledge Layne Moon, who was unable to attend the festival, but whose incredible graphic design skills provided us with the many wonderful images that appeared on the posters, banners, t-shirts, etc.

To the audience, we thank you for your support and enthusiasm, and hope to see you at next years festival! The dates for the 2017 San Pancho Music Festival will be:

Friday Feb. 24       Saturday Feb. 25       Sunday Feb. 26, 2017


Muchas Gracias!!


We could still use your support….

As the Festival has grown in stature, we are now being approached by acts that live outside the greater Vallarta region; artists who would like to perform if we are able to provide them with lodging.  Even if we had the resources to cover the cost of lodging during the Festival weekend, the Festival’s popularity has caused many of the rental properties in town to be full, so we are looking for folks who might have a spare room or casita to offer.  If you can help support the Festival in this manner, please contact us by clicking on this link, Give Us A Shout  and leave us a short message in the comment box, so that we can get in touch with you.  You can also send us a private message on our Facebook page.
