In the wake of the pandemic, the Riviera Maya Jazz Festival will be held virtually this year from Nov. 27-29, offering music aficionados from all over the world the opportunity to enjoy the festival experience from their homes. The digital version will consist of two concerts per night over three days.
“Considering the journey of the festival, we decided to host a digital version that would protect the health of attendees,” said Darío Flota Ocampo, Director of the Quintana Roo Tourism Board, in a virtual press conference. “We will showcase a tour through the past 17 years with the best local and national jazz bands.”
The festival will be held and broadcasted via Facebook and YouTube.
This year’s talent includes Aguamala, Xamán, Elite Band, Diego Maroto Quartet, bolero and flamenco artist Memo Ruíz, Pepe Hernández & Paco Rosas Quintet.
Starting November 23, the Quintana Roo Tourism Board, in partnership with the Secretary of Culture, the city council and the Municipal Institute of Culture and Arts, will also host a series of lectures, live concerts and special broadcasts in different parks and venues throughout Playa del Carmen, adhering to the strictest health & safety protocols and guidelines, to share the healing powers of music with locals and travellers alike.
