As an outlet to further explore electronic music production, Conspirator was formed in 2004 by Aron Magner and Marc Brownstein (keyboardist and bassist for The Disco Biscuits), and DJ Omen.

After performing with some of the festival scene’s most notable live artists, the band solidified into a 4-piece touring lineup with the additions of Chris Michetti (RAQ), and KJ Sawka (Pendulum) in 2012. Conspirator had a phenomenal rise with the release of Unlocked – Live from the Georgia Theatre (April 2012, SCI Fidelity Records) and action-packed tours in 2011 and 2012 with groundbreaking performances at venues across the U.S. and festivals such as Ultra Music Festival, Nocturnal Festival, Electric Forest Festival, Starscape Festival, Gathering of the Vibes, and CounterPoint Music Festivall.

With their utmost experience and mastery of the craft, Conspirator pushes into 2013 with more raw power and drive than ever, starting with the release of their new EP Unleashed on January 29 followed by a 28 city U.S. tour.

Unleashed is a crystal clear demonstration of Conspirator’s heavy, electronically produced core coupled with a skillful and melodic homage to live instrumentation. Electronic rock sensibilities are gracefully smashed into jaw dropping, dance-floor shaking dubstep rhythms to create an effortless fusion of all things deep. This high-impact collision creates an all-encompassing, energetic spectacle which will no doubt be used to shock their devoted crowds from coast to coast.

Cloud 9 Adventures is excited to announce the details of the highly celebrated destination concert event, Dominican Holidaze, as it returns to the Dominican Republic. Now entering the ninth year since the event’s inception in 2007, this all-inclusive concert vacation will be returning to Breathless Resort & Spa in Punta Cana. The four night event will be held from December 3–7, 2015, and feature host bands STS9, The Disco Biscuits, and Umphrey’s McGee each performing two full two-set shows plus an additional sunset show right on the beach for an intimate audience of 1500 fans. Additional artists will be joining the stacked Holidaze lineup including Lettuce, Papadosio, Break Science, Gigamesh, Nightmares on Wax (DJ set) and Lee Foss.

Much more than a show in a foreign country, this is a unique and intimate concert vacation taking place over four nights on a beautiful stretch of palm tree-lined coast in paradise - the kind of experience shared with friends that you cherish forever. All meals, drinks, concerts, activities and accommodations are included in the package price. In addition to the music, Dominican Holidaze hosts a variety of customized activities around the resort like daily yoga, artist-hosted interactive activities, poolside competitions, a poker tournament, a scheduled autograph signing and more to be announced. And for the more adventurous, fans can also book off-site excursions to explore the local culture and beauty of the DR.

Breathless Resort & Spa Punta Cana is a beachfront all-inclusive resort located on the northeast coast in the Uvero Alto region of Punta Cana. Luxury accommodations with spacious guest suites offer a selection between stage-side suites, ocean-side suites, swim up suites, pool views and tropical garden views, all combining contemporary and traditional Caribbean decor. A world-class spa and fitness center, and unlimited access to eleven gourmet-dining options all come together to make this a genuine luxury vacation. A striking backdrop of tropical jungle, vibrant blue waters, beautiful beach and lush grounds surrounds the resort. The concert experience boasts a rare chance to interact with artists and like-minded fans from around the world in a beautiful setting - all just steps away from your own private accommodations and everything Breathless Resort has to offer.

Dominican Holidaze has again partnered with the charitable organization Positive Legacy, whose mission is to integrate live music and service by taking actions that positively impact local communities and the environment. At last year’s Dominican Holidaze, guests traveled outside of the resort to the nearby village of Veron, where Positive Legacy completed phase 3 of a several year project and donated $25,500 to help fund a Natural Waste Water Treatment facility. This part of the Fuentes de Vida (sources of life) project is now complete and currently providing 500 Veron residents with wastewater services to keep contamination out of the local aquifer. Volunteers spent the day taking a tour of the project, cleaning up trash with local children in the community, having lunch with a local music performance and then ending the day collectively painting a mural with the locals. Stay tuned for more information on getting involved with this year’s Dominican Holidaze day of service!

Event details are as follows:

All-inclusive packages for returning Holidaze guests will go on sale on Tuesday, April 21, 2015. If rooms remain following the pre-sale, there will be a general on sale beginning Wednesday, April 22, 2015 at 12:00 PM ET at www.dominicanholidaze.com.

Dominican Holidaze is an international concert vacation that is brought to you by Cloud 9 Adventures. The event made its debut in Jamaica in 2007 under the name Caribbean Holidaze featuring Umphrey’s McGee and The Disco Biscuits. In 2010, the event moved to Riviera Maya, Mexico and added STS9 for a four year run known as Mayan Holidaze. After 4 years in Mexico, Holidaze made the pilgrimage to the Dominican Republic in 2014. The 2015 event will mark the second year returning to the Dominican Republic as Dominican Holidaze. See your favorite band and see the world at the same time!

In addition, GRiZ will perform one show on the main stage and a Poolside Bangers DJ set, while Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, Lotus, and The Motet will each perform one show on the main stage.

All-inclusive luxury accommodations at both resorts offer guests a wide variety of stunning room selections, over a dozen all-inclusive gourmet dining options, and unlimited drinks at bars throughout the property and concert area – including wait service in the crowd so fans never miss a beat - all while surrounded by lush grounds, multiple pools, and a beautiful palm-lined beach. In addition, the resorts offer a world-class spa and fully equipped fitness center. Guests will be able to move freely between the two resorts - maintaining the intimacy and community that makes Holidaze so special while enjoying the all-inclusive amenities of two resorts.  Fans who wish to extend their stay to enjoy all that the resorts have to offer before and after the event can do so for a discounted rate.

Dominican Holidaze has again partnered with the charitable organization Positive Legacy, whose mission is to integrate live music and service by taking actions that positively impact local communities and the environment. Last year, Holidaze fans joined the Positive Legacy Team for an amazing day of community connection spent at the Punta Cana Ecological Foundation with local students. Participants snorkeled and discovered more about the Foundation's innovative coral reef restoration efforts, then toured the bee keeping and composting areas while learning how to effectively and sustainably process waste. In addition, they planted native flora on the beach dedicated to improving the habitat where sea turtles lay eggs. The afternoon wrapped up with a traditional Dominican lunch, games, and live music. The 2016 Day of Service focused on giving the community’s children an experience of music and environmental connections.

All-inclusive packages for returning Holidaze guests will go on sale on May 17, 2017.

If rooms remain following the Pre-sale, there will be a Public On Sale on Thursday May 18, 2017 at 12:00 PM ET at dominicanholidaze.com.
