The vibe was just right for our third annual Closer to the Sun getaway, as a tight knit crew of returning guests joined forced with some awesome first-timers for another epic beach vacation! It felt so great to be back home at Now Sapphire, where the resort staff remembered our faces and made us feel welcome for the entire duration of our stay. And what a stay is was! Four nights of music on the beach, plus poolside sets, palapa sets and phenomenal weather. What tops that?

Looking back on our vacation, it’s impossible to not mention all the activities and extras that went down. The Silverback Invitational Closer to the Rim basketball tournament, was another fan favorite with G. Love and other artists joining the fans some ballin’ on the court. We also put a Mexican spin on a classic game, as the guys from Stick Figure helped hosted a rowdy game of Margarita Pong one of the days. Add in some poolside fun with Miles Doughty, a tropical drink challenge with Kyle McDonald, another autograph signing, and other bits of fun, and we sure had ourselves an action packed four days.

Musically, it was another year to remember! Slightly Stoopid treated us to 3 amazing shows, including one right at the pool, one on the beach, and one in the sweet open air palapa. With so many awesome musicians present, we also saw some killer collaborations including Kyle McDonald joining Stick Figure, Dirty Heads joining Slightly Stoopid, and of course special guests like G. Love and Don Carlos making their presence felt everywhere!

Muchas gracias amigos! 2016 was another incredible Closer to the Sun, and we have you all to thank for helping bring the magic.
