The San Pancho Music Festival began informally in 2001, and by 2006 included some 116 performers. The Music Festival attracts some of the most colorful musicians from around the world, including international acts from Europe, the U.S., Chile, Guatemala, France and Germany. Regional talent has also been retained to include the traditional Mexican and Latin music of local musicians.
The Festival maintains a philosophy commonly shared by the village citizens: they value and appreciate the cultural diversity and “grass roots” talents of their local and regional neighbors while also embracing the talents of world-class musicians. It is a truly wonderful balance of amateurs and professional performers getting together for 3 days to share an unforgettable and enriching musical experience in one of the most beautiful regions of Mexico.
