Festival Sayulita 2015: Movies and Music in Mexico
go to original
Riviera Nayarit, Mexico – Cinephiles looking to enjoy a film with their feet in the sand can do so from January 14 to 18 at the second Festival Sayulita, a five-day culture and food fest in the chilled-out coastal town of Sayulita, 45 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta.
This year, organizers are adding a day of music with a lineup that includes the electronic hip-hop group, The San Juan Project, and Tennis Pro, the “struggling Seattle rock band” and subject of the film “Big in Japan,” which will be one of the 60 films screened at locations around town — including the beach, the community center and the baseball field.
The popular tag team surfing event, free for participants and spectators, will return to Main Beach for riders of all levels and ages. This year also will see the debut of Mexi Log Fest, a longboard competition. “Some of the biggest names in longboarding are coming to compete,” said Gabbi Villarrubia, one of the festival’s co-founders. “We’re stoked about Alex Knost.”
Tasting dinners will be offered on two consecutive nights. Popular restaurants like the Sayulita Public House, Calypso and Mamma Mia will participate.
Tickets and packages start at $1,250 pesos, or about $90 USD.
