The investment by the government of the state of Veracruz will be 20 million pesos
Salsa Fest, one of the most popular musical events in the country, returns after a two-year break due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The festival will take place in Boca del Río, Veracruz, and on this occasion it brings as stellar artists Óscar de León, Sonora Carruseles and Diego Morán, among others.
It will seek to promote tourism to benefit all social sectors in the area.
“Tourism is the second most important branch that generates the economy at a national and global level, leisure and entertainment tourism is the item that generates the most economic spill,” said Iván Martínez Olvera, undersecretary of Promotion and Tourist Attention of the state of Veracruz, who worked together with the organizers of the contest and hotel and restaurant groups for the return of the festival.
Martínez Olvera also shared that this will help to have an economic benefit, both in the city of Boca del Río and in the metropolitan area, due to the large influx of public that is expected and for which they are preparing.
“Not only do we generate the attendance of 230,000 people at the salsódromo, because the attending families are accompanied by people who only travel for tourism purposes and not to enter the festival, we are contemplating 600,000 visitors in the metropolitan area, and that generates an economic spill that permeates all social segments,” said the official.
The investment by the government of the state of Veracruz will be 20 million pesos, which was made taking into account the spillover from other editions of the festival, where more than 200 million pesos were generated, a figure that is sought to be exceeded this year. according to the information offered by Olvera.
“The expectation is to reach 300 million pesos in economic benefits,” he said.
Attendance at the event will be completely free, and the reservation of tables to appreciate the concert will cost approximately 500 pesos.
The attendance of the Mexican public and seven other countries is expected.
The city of Boca del Río is four hours by car from Mexico City, so attendance by people from the capital is expected to be high, said Undersecretary Olvera.
