After spending a mind-melting – yet chilly! – weekend in March at WinterWonderGrass Colorado (Steamboat Springs), the Festy GoNuts team is ready to peel off the layers and head to El Sargento, Mexico for the very first (annual?) BajaWonderGrass.
Brought to you by the curators of WinterWonderGrass, RiverWonderGrass, Campout for the Cause and Revival with Billy Strings, BajaWonderGrass is sure to be a festival to rival all destination festivals.
Imagine a few hundred festival friends, a select group of your favorite artists, and a breathtaking venue in a quiet coastal town.
We’re only a few weeks away from this wonder of a festival, but there’s still plenty of time to grab your tickets and plan your trip to the peninsula for BajaWonderGrass Music Festival.

The challenge of having a music festival in a remote town in Baja California Sur is getting there!
There are several options for you to ensure you arrive at the festival safely.
You can fly into La Paz, but flights are more expensive and less frequent. So, you’ll probably want to fly into Cabo San Lucas airport.

“We are excited to host you in this delicate and magical part of the world,” expresses festival founder, Scotty Stoughton. He continues, “As you have surely noticed, this is an event that requires everyone to do a little work, plan the journey, find your Way. All we ask is that you be mindful of this community and bring the WWG spirit of environmental awareness, and community integration. The journey is often the deepest reward.”
Bringing together some of the familiar faces of WinterWonderGrass and RiverWonderGrass, the inaugural lineup for BajaWonderGrass includes Pickin’ on the Dead (featuring Tyler Grant, Adrian Engfer, Jake Wolf, Michel Kirkpatrick and Mark Levy), alongside Lindsay Lou, Daniel Rodriguez, Kyle Tuttle, Fruition’s Mimi Naja, Buffalo Commons, and Bonfire Dub.
The event aims to give back to the community and pledges to donate a portion of ticket proceeds to a local non-profit partner. Local eatery La Tuna — known for its ceviche, tacos and beach-perfect drinks — will serve as the home of BajaWonderGrass where attendees can revel in the beautiful sites of the Sea of Cortez, kite surfers and vibrant marine life.
