Located in Central Mexico is a tropical getaway equipped with all the attractions human beings can imagine: zip line, rock climbing wall, concert venue. The latter is called the Venado Show Room which is located inside the playa Mazatlan Beach Hotel. Starting august and ending March, Hotel Playa Mazatlán will be hosting Playapalooza a rock festival based off the legendary lollapalooza.

What is Lollapalooza?

Lallapallooza is a rock festival reoccurring annually that features the major players in rock, heavy metal, punk, hip hop, dance, and even comedy acts. What’s more, the event serves as a launching pad for non-profit charities to solicit donations with the help of artists and the carefree vibe emitted from the legendary rock festival.  What began as a farewell tour for an alternative band, Janes Addiction, has evolved rapidly into a modern day Woodstock. However, unlike Woodstock which took place in a fixed location, Lollapalooza visits a different city every two days so that everyone can take part in the fun. These festivals will typically draw more than 160,000 people over a two to three day period.

Come Enjoy the Sun and Fun

In order to bring Lallapalooza directly to your beach front paradise, we have created Playapalooza for our beloved guests. At Playapalooza, guest can expect to hear a myriad of genres including American Rock, Mexican Rock, Contemporary Rock, Rockabilly, Glam Rock, and Country Rock. International talent will be flown in to play alongside local talent. The ultimate goal is to establish “Venados” Show Room within the main stream music community.

Come on by!

We can’t wait for you to come on by and share the music, sun, and fun. One look at our sandy beaches, and rusty sunsets, and you’ll wish to stay forever. Feel free to reach out to us at Hotel Mazatlan to learn more.
