Thirty-one acts, eleven stages, five days of live music, one amazing experience. It’s Circus Mexicus 2021!

What started as a small venue at the rooftop of Sunset Cantina back in 2000 has evolved into an annual party with now over 20 acts, eleven states and five days of live music.

The party starts Thursday June 10 at Banditos at 1pm with The Boys opening up the stage.  Continuing on through Monday June 14.  There will be many acts playing throughout Puerto Penasco over these 5 days.

You can enjoy these acts at:

  • Banditos

Bands from all over the United States and Mexico will join together to celebrate the return of live music and Circus Mexicus.

Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers will headline both Friday and Saturday nights performing different setlists on the Tequila Main Stage adjacent to Banditos on Sandy Beach.

Joining RCPM Friday will be Authority Zero who have brought their high energy, aggressive reggae beats to stages around the world for 20 years and  Arizona’s Black Bottom Lighters open the show.  From New Braunfels, TX, Cody Canada & The Departed and Northern Idaho’s Jeff Crosby & The Refugees round out Saturday night supporting RCPM.
