Siesta Fest began April 2007 at Hemisfair Park.  Our first year was tough to say the least.  As co-founder, Pete L. Gonzales, jr., stated, “it’s pretty bad when we have a clear view of the park no matter what end you are at and can hear the crickets sing”.  We didn’t give up, we kept on bringing a variety of music that appealed to the masses.  And year after year Siesta Fest grew.  Our last year at Hemisfair park was in 2012 when we had Korn headlining and an overflow of patrons. 

We couldn’t locate any of the staff that year much less hear the crickets!  Finally the vision had come to pass, Siesta Fest was a chosen destination during Fiesta.  We had to find a new home for Siesta Fest and there weren’t many to choose from during Fiesta.  We came across THE LOT on Commerce that had potential to grow with Siesta Fest. With each passing year, we would run into people we hadn’t seen in years or would only see during Siesta Fest. 

Each time there were great memories with great music.  Making Memories with Music, captured all the awesome times our patrons have at Siesta Fest enjoying the company of great people and awesome music.

As we celebrate our 10th Anniversary, we dedicate this year to the memory of Co-Founder, Pete L. Gonzales jr., who was such an amazing person God decided to make him an angel! (9-18-69 to 3-15-15) It’s been a tough year but we will continue to bring you the best music and continue his vision of making Siesta Fest a “must do” event during Fiesta!  

Siesta Fest has had the pleasure of having the following artists:
Queensryche, UFO, Saxon, Eddie Money, Stevie B, Tone Loc, Snoop Dogg, Debbie Deb, Salt N Peppa, Blue Oyster Cult, Shaggy, DJ Laz, Union Underground, Michael Schenker Group, April Wine, Y&T, Dokken, Korn, Freestyle Evolution, Shock G, Puddle of Mudd, Cypress Hill, Static X, and many more!
