Cloud 9 Adventures and Widespread Panic announce the details of the sixth edition of destination concert vacation, Panic en la Playa. The four-night destination concert vacation will return to the beautiful Caribbean coastline of the Riviera Maya region of Mexico from February 27 - March 3, 2017. The all-inclusive Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya will host Widespread Panic devotees at this ultimate fan experience where guests experience four full nights of Widespread Panic. The additional lineup will feature Orgone, Southern Soul Assembly, and Bloodkin, as well as the return of the Playa All-Stars, all scheduled to round out the musical experience with sunset sets and late-night performances. The Playa All-Stars, a must-see collaboration specially curated for Panic en la Playa alone, features top-notch musicians Ivan Neville, Karl Denson, Eric Krasno, George Porter, Jr., Jennifer Hartswick, and Terence Higgins, coming together to hold down two late-night shows. Southern Soul Assembly features the musical collaboration of JJ Grey, Luther Dickinson, Anders Osborne and Marc Broussard, performing a special lagoon sunset set overlooking the beauty of the Caribbean Sea.
Celebrating their 30th anniversary in 2016, Widespread Panic recently announced that they would be taking a step back from their heavy tour schedule for some well-deserved time away from the road. Panic en la Playa Seis offers fans a chance to see the band perform an exclusive four night run of shows in a truly unique setting – which is sure to be even more special due to a limited touring schedule for 2017.
Widespread Panic shows all take place in the pristine concert courtyard, which provides a first-class concert experience with top-notch production, exceptional acoustics, convenient all-inclusive bar service and ample space for dancing and enjoyment – all within the resort property. In addition to the stacked musical lineup, fans will have the opportunity to participate in a full schedule of artist-hosted activities, workshops, poolside games, a poker tournament, daily yoga, and theme nights, with much more to be announced.
The Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya is a luxurious all-inclusive resort located between Playa del Carmen and Tulum, with all meals, beverages, concerts, and activities included in the event package price. Guests can choose from a wide variety of well-appointed room categories, including concert courtyard suites, oceanfront rooms, and lush tropical views spread throughout the property, all within easy walking distance to the main stage and late night shows.
Guests can also book off-site excursions to explore all of the natural beauty and culture the area has to offer - such as visiting the Mayan ruins in Tulum, zip-lining through the jungle, shopping in Playa del Carmen, in addition to an abundance of other cultural options that will be offered through the event website.
Panic en la Playa is again partnering with the charitable organization Positive Legacy, encouraging artists and fans to participate in a day of service and cultural connection in the local community as a way of giving back. In addition to the day of service project, the event will feature an auction and a donation drive to benefit the local community. All proceeds from the auction will go toward the ongoing Positive Legacy charitable projects in this region.
A truly intimate experience, Panic en la Playa Seis is limited only to guests who book their trip through Cloud 9 Adventures Travel. The Pre-sale for returning guests will begin on July 11, 2016 starting at 12PM ET and running through July 12. The General On Sale will begin on July 13, 2016 at 12PM ET. Pre and post nights will be available for guests who would like to extend their vacation. All event room packages can be booked through panicenlaplaya.com.
