GRATEFUL WEB - May 19, 2021

After a two-year hiatus, Cloud 9 Adventures has announced the highly anticipated return of Holidaze. The intimate concert vacation returns to Riviera Maya, Mexico at Now Sapphire Resort and Dreams Resort & Spa on December 4-8, 2021. The all-inclusive tropical adventure features four nights of music on the Caribbean coast from a monumental lineup featuring Holidaze veterans, supergroups, and first time performers.

The concert venues – main stage on the beach, poolside gazebo, and open-air palapa – are celebrated for their intimacy and convenience to guest suites and all-inclusive amenities. Afternoon, sunset, evening and late night performances at these unique, tropical stages are guaranteed to be an extraordinary experience. Host bands Umphrey’s McGee and the Disco Biscuits will perform three shows each with additional sets by moe., Chromeo (DJ Set), Brain Damaged Eggmen, The New Deal, Andy Frasco & The U.N., Chali 2na & Cut Chemist, Doom Flamingo, Omega Moos, Karina Rykman,and Little Stranger throughout the event.

After making its debut in 2007 in Jamaica as one of the first-ever resort based destination events, Holidaze, lead by jam pioneers the Disco Biscuits and Umphrey’s McGee now ventures into its 13th year. And maintaining the intimacy is part of what makes it so unique – with the flexibility to give fans a next level experience with curated experiences beyond the music that include interactive artist-hosted activities and workshops, poolside competitions, theme nights, morning yoga, charitable day of service, and so much more. Guests also have the opportunity to book select off-site excursions to explore the beauty and culture of the surrounding Mayan region extending from Cancun to Tulum.

Holidaze expands on the experience by giving fans the choice between completely renovated suites at Now Sapphire, plus a limited number of suites at Dreams Resort & Spa – a well-appointed luxury resort located just a few minutes from the Main Stage at Now Sapphire. Guests staying at Dreams Resort & Spa can easily connect to Now Sapphire throughout the day and night either by a quick beach walk or complimentary door-to-door shuttle service. Dreams guests can experience the best of both worlds with all the action of Now Sapphire at their fingertips, access to double the resort amenities, and the perfect place to get away.

Holidaze offers guests a wide variety of room selections (including some stagefront and oceanfront suites), an array of all-inclusive dining options, fully equipped fitness centers, world class spas, and unlimited drinks at bars throughout both properties and all concert areas. Fans who wish to extend their stay can enjoy all the resorts have to offer before and after the event for a discounted rate.

Holidaze is again partnering with charitable organization Positive Legacy, encouraging artists and fans to participate in a day of service in the community of Puerto Morelos as a way of giving back. Positive Legacy’s ongoing projects in the region bring hands-on opportunities for guests to get involved. Details for this year’s artist-hosted activities, theme nights, and community outreach will be released this summer.

All-inclusive packages for returning Holidaze guests can be reserved during the Pre-sale on May 24, 2021. If rooms remain, the Public On Sale will begin on May 25, 2021 at 1pm ET on the Holidaze website.
