Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers will return to Puerto Peñasco, Rocky Point Mexico, June 5-8 for the 23rd annual Circus Mexicus music festival. Advance general admission tickets went on sale 12 p.m. MST on February 21.
Roger Clyne has independently produced the four-day beach front celebration of music since its inception. Clyne’s own brand of award-winning Mexican Moonshine Tequila is the festival’s annual presenting sponsor. Coined the “Best Rock ‘n’ Roll Road Trip” by the Phoenix New Times, fans from nearly 40 states and multiple countries are expected this year. The event started in 2000 and was held bi-annually in the early days.
2014 Circus Mexicus kicks off on Thursday, June 5 at JJ’s Cantina with Hickman-Dalton Gang, Ghetto Cowgirl and Random Karma taking the stage. Friday, June 6 the main stage across from The Hut goes live with performances by Cracker, Sand Rubies and Shurman. Saturday, June 7 starts off at 8 a.m. with Roger Clyne’s annual Rock and Soccer Tournament on the beach at Wrecked at The Reef. Saturday evening invites festivalgoers to a special “Eat & Greet” with Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers at Bandito’s (was The Hut) before they take to the main stage for their annual Circus Mexicus marathon performance joined by special guest The Jons. Sunday, June 8 the party returns to JJ’s Cantina for the Hot Dog & A Smile Mañanathon, benefitting Esparanza Para Los Niños children’s home with performances by Ghetto Cowgirl, Sand Rubies, Shurman Black Moods, Elvis Before Noon and Random Karma.
Organizers have expanded the event this year bringing platinum-album recording artists Cracker to headline the main stage on Friday night. This change will make room for drummer PH Naffah to host his annual Hot Dog & A Smile Mañanathon all day Sunday beginning at 11am. “People have such a great time that day anyway, but we thought we could make it bigger and better by adding Hot Dog & Smile”, according to Naffah.
