The holiday is coming. At least the One Big Holiday is coming, thanks to My Morning Jacket.
The second edition of My Morning Jacket's One Big Holiday – the band's ultimate fan experience and destination concert event – sees the band bring their epic live performance to 2500 lucky fans. They are going back to the fully renovated Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya from January 31 through February 4, 2015 for a four-night, all-inclusive concert adventure of a lifetime.
"We are so excited for this second year of One Big Holiday...the second of what we hope will be many more to come! The first one was so beautiful we just knew we had to do it again...what could be more fun than spending quality time with a bunch of sweet folks- old friends and new- in a beautiful place celebrating music/art/peace and love!!! Let's get together and celebrate!," the band said.
One Big Holiday will once again feature three full shows under the stars by My Morning Jacket. Joining MMJ will be Preservation Hall Jazz Band, as well as newcomers War On Drugs, Dr. Dog, Dawes and Sylvan Esso, who will each perform one show, plus special guest DJ Biz Markie.
Fans are also in for a special treat as Band of Horses will perform two full shows, including one acoustic performance as the sun goes down.
In addition to an intimate run of shows, fans will enjoy all of the luxurious benefits offered by the beautiful Hard Rock Riviera Maya. More than a series of live shows, this is an all-inclusive experience; all fans stay on site at the resort and all meals, drinks, concerts and activities are included in the package.
With a full renovation and re-branding completed earlier this year, the stunning Hard Rock Riviera Maya is located just south of Playa del Carmen and the location promises all of the modern amenities of a first class tropical vacation, in rock and roll style, complete with a variety of room types that look out onto the concert area.
Relax by the pool, take a dip in the ocean, use the spa and gather with friends for meals. Plus, look out for spontaneous artist involvement in activities, cultural experiences and excursions, and all the magical moments that come from being on vacation with your crew. The possibilities are endless!
Then, as the sun goes down, guests will be treated to epic shows by one of the world's premier live bands.
Night two's shows get a later start to allow for multiple viewing parties of America's biggest football game of the year with the action going well into the night. An additional treat is that the music will live on well after the event, as everyone who attends will receive a download code for each MMJ performance at One Big Holiday to be redeemed by live downloads.
Doesn't this sound like a dream?
Event details are as follows:
All-inclusive prices start at $1299 per person based on double occupancy and include a four-night stay at the resort, three full shows and an off-the-hook dance party hosted by My Morning Jacket, access to top notch all-inclusive resort amenities, and an unparalleled music adventure in paradise.
Please note that all guests staying at Hard Rock Riviera Maya will be there for One Big Holiday; outside guests will not be permitted, and reservations must be booked online or over the phone through Cloud 9 Adventures Travel Team. The whole resort will be filled with My Morning Jacket fans!
