Warm winds blow softly and the smell of fresh, salty air overwhelms your senses. Soft, oatmeal colored sand, crunches under your toes as sparkling, emerald water touches the shoreline in harmony as far the eye can see. In the distance objects play on the sea, a few boats, a jet ski, and even a dolphin fin or two–this is Puerto Penasco, Mexico in June.

Suddenly, a guitar chord, a drum beat and a 1, 2, 3, 4 … fabulous music drifts in the air. The spectacular sunset plops into the sea and the night is alive with energy, happiness, and an unusually fun-loving peacemaker crowd. This is Circus Mexicus a music festival in June in Puerto Penasco, Mexico, a four-hour road trip from Phoenix, Arizona.
It happens every year, this epic music celebration in June. Yes, sit back and relax because on June 9th-12th, 2016 “Circus Mexicus” a four-day celebration of life is about to begin. The festival with roots back to 2000–with Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers playing in a cantina–has morphed into a multi-day music festival, hosting over 22 bands. Phoenix New Times voted it “Best Rock N Roll Road Trip.”
Enjoy a night under the stars of Puerto Penasco (nicknamed Rocky Point) and remember how good it is to enjoy live music outside at the beach. Beach and music go together like chips and salsa. The same with Rocky Point and the dazzling rock music of Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers– they blend together and create outstanding Mexico memories.

Be spontaneous, road trip it to Mexico, accommodations are still available. Rocky Point might take your breath away—and the music of Circus Mexicus will make your heart beat fast and your bare feet dance.
