The new year brings a new music festival and a new security paradigm. Rock Fiesta is coming to Quartzsite, AZ on March 18 & 19, 2016 with an Early Entry Day March 17, featuring 19 incredible major Latino rock bands: CAIFANES, CAFÉ TACVBA, MALDITA VECINDAD, EL TRI, MOLOTOV, PXNDX, KINKY, PANTEÓN ROCOCÓ, OZOMATLI, LOS AMIGOS INVISIBLES, DIVISIÓN MINUSCULA, NORTEC COLLECTIVE PRESENTS: BOSTICH + FUSSIBLE, SILVERIO, FINDE, SIDDHARTHA, S7N, MEXICAN DUBWISER, PALENKE SOULTRIBE and METALACHI. Never before have all of these stars performed at one event in America.
Rock Fiesta is taking event security seriously; 15,000’ of fence surround both the 18 acre concert area and 115 acre festival area. Rock Fiesta has 2 separate entrances, one for people driving from L.A Exit 17, and the east, Phoenix Exit 19. Printed on the ticket-backs, in the website and on signs entering the festival patrons are told they may be subject to a quick vehicle search for weapons at entry, patrons stay in their cars while their tickets are scanned and wristbands secured on the wrist of every person entering the festival site. To gain entrance to the concert area, patrons will be padded down and purses checked every time they re-enter.
Rock Fiesta is working with the security firm Special Assignments Group (SAG) and R & S Events, based in Phoenix. The security force starts with 150 guards (some armed), as the event grows in attendance over the 3 next months, more guards will be added. Security is 24 hours. 25 ATVs and golf carts will be adding to perimeter. Don’t be surprised to see a drone or video cameras monitoring the event.
The festival is planning with ADOT and Quail Traffic Control to anticipate ingress over 2 days. Lighted road message boards and light towers will show the way to Quartzsite starting on Early Entry Day, Thursday March 17, intended to relieve the traffic on Friday’s first live music day. The festival offers 3 days of camping and 2 days of non-stop Latino rock music from 12 noon to 12 midnight. “Rock Fiesta is not interested in people’s documentation and it does not have any contact with Border Patrol, our relationship with Quartzsite Police and the State Police only focuses on traffic and roads, the Mexican border is nor close to our location” said Hal Davidson Festivaland’s Producer. Rock Fiesta is produced by Festivaland, LLC.
