More major artists were announced this week, and just released, the list of renowned DJs to perform Thursday, March 17, 2016 in Hector & Pedro’s Saloon and in the Late Nite Dance Tent, both located inside the 100 acre festival site.

Hector & Pedro’s Saloon is a specially built western style saloon with swinging doors right out of the old west. Inside, over 40’ of video screens puts festival goers right at the stage. All of Rock Fiesta’s LED screens and LED towers are fed by 4 separate video camera operators using state-of-the-art equipment so sharp, they’ll be able to see the name on the guitarist’s pic. Hector & Pedro’s makes the stage close while relaxing at the bar. True music lovers won’t want to leave.
Festival producer Hal Davidson is excited that the event has gained such momentum as new entertainers join in. “The talent coming for this two day festival is unreal. I’m so excited to share the best in the business with a crowd that is thirsty for great Latino music in a rockin’ venue.”
