Fans can also expect DJ sets by the pool as well as post-show parties. More than just a series of concerts, Dominican Holidaze is an all-inclusive concert vacation where all meals, drinks, shows and accommodations are included in the package. Fans have the unique opportunity to interact with the artists and participate in many on-site activities, or explore the region on one of the off-site excursions and enjoy a truly up close and personal experience.

The tropical locale, stunning turquoise waters, swaying palms along the coastline, and luxurious accommodations of the brand new Breathless Resort & Spa create a magnificent backdrop for this special event.  This beachfront resort is perfectly situated on the northeast coast in the Uvero Alto region of Punta Cana.  The finely appointed, spacious suites, world-class spa and the resort’s modern design and vibrant colors give this latest edition of Holidaze a fresh vibe. Plus, unique touches like open-air plazas, communal tables at gourmet dining venues and multiple pools complement the open air atmosphere and bring the fan community together.  Dominican Holidaze offers music fans a genuine luxury vacation relaxing on the beach with friends by day while listening to their favorite bands on the beach by night.

In addition to all of the great music, Dominican Holidaze has partnered with the charitable organization Positive Legacy, who’s mission is to integrate live music and service by taking actions that positively impact local communities and the environment.  Most recently in this region, Positive Legacy donated over $25,000 to contribute to the construction of a Waste Water Treatment facility in the nearby village of Veron. Positive Legacy and music fans worked in conjunction with the local Peace Corps and the Ecological Foundation of Punta Cana in March 2014 and the project is currently at 75%  completion. A day of service will also be planned for Dominican Holidaze, stay tuned for more information on ways of giving back to the community with Positive Legacy.
