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!

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!
