SeaWorld guests can spice it up this spring during the return of Viva La Música presented by Coca-Cola. The popular Latin music series will feature four weekends of live performances from award-winning regional Mexican musical artists, plus special culinary offerings, a live DJ and community dancers, all in a family-friendly atmosphere flavored with the fiery flair of Hispanic culture. Viva La Música, included with park admission, will take place weekends May 4–5, May 11–12 and May 18–19 and June1–2, 2019.
Los Tucanes de Tijuana, Los Rieleros del Norte and Lupillo Rivera are among the headliners performing two shows a day at the park’s newly renovated Nautilus Amphitheater. In addition to the headlining concerts at Nautilus Amphitheater, Viva La Música will also include a festival area called the Zócalo (located between Wild Arctic and Penguin Encounter). The Zócalo will feature performances by community dance groups and a live DJ to pump up the party atmosphere. Fish tacos, street tacos, nachos and pupusas (thick cornmeal flatbread typically stuffed with beans, cheese, chicharrón and squash) will be available to purchase in this area.

Concerts are at 3:30 and 6 p.m. at Nautilus Amphitheater. They are included with park admission, but a wristband is required to attend. Wristbands will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis at the plaza near Explorer’s Café when the park opens. Seating will be limited, so park admission does not guarantee a concert seat.
During Viva La Música, SeaWorld is open until 8 p.m. on Saturdays and 7 p.m. on Sundays. This is sure to be an awesome event, so definitely check it out!
