Riviera Maya Jazz Festival 2017

Riviera Maya Jazz Festival. Playa Mamitas.

By Erik Bartzik, October 6th, 2017, Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo.

November is coming, and with it, one of my favorite events of the year. The Riviera Maya Jazz Festival. This event will be held for the 15th time in the famous beach club, Playa Mamitas.

The event occurs right on the beach under the stars. A big set up takes place and musicians from around the globe are invited to play their beats.

The festival starts on Friday and ends on Sunday. And every year they match the date with the same weekend of thanksgiving.

The lineup for this year includes Illya Kuryaki and the Valderramas, John McLaughlin, Jimmy Herrig, Bobby McFerrin, Wallace Roney, amongst others. Check the flyer:

The event will start on November 30th in the evening, and will finish on Sunday December 2nd around midnight.

I want to make a recommendation if you are planning to assist to the Riviera Maya Jazz festival, and that is to arrive early to the site. As the entrance is free, mainly the locals arrive at early hours, with the intention of getting a nice place to seat down, close to the action. You can bring with you, your own beach chairs, and coolers.

Beverages and snacks are sold in the tents, but you can bring your own. We just recommend you to keep the concert area clean, do not litter, and take back with you everything you came with.

The atmosphere is very relaxed, and it is safe to bring all your family members including your kids, to enjoy this spectacular event.

So what are you waiting for, book your tickets now, and be part of this year edition of the RMJF.
