STRINGS & SOL ANNOUNCES 2016 ARTIST LINEUP
Today, Cloud 9 Adventures announces the artist lineup and full event details for the return of bluegrass-centric concert vacation, Strings & Sol, held at Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun in Puerto Morelos, Mexico from December 9 -13, 2016. For the 5th year of the annual destination music event, the lineup features multiple performances by Yonder Mountain String Band, Greensky Bluegrass, Railroad Earth, Leftover Salmon, The Infamous Stringdusters, as well as one show each from Keller & The Keels and Keller’s Grateful Grass. In addition, joining in are special guests Danny Barnes and Nicki Bluhm to complete this exciting 2016 lineup.
Attendees of the beloved destination bluegrass vacation are guaranteed a truly memorable experience in a beautiful tropical location. Live music performances – on the beach, poolside and in the fan-favorite open air Palapa – are just steps away from guestrooms, and the all-inclusive amenities of Now Sapphire are at every fingertip. Bringing together a family of music fans with some of their favorite artists, Strings & Sol is the perfect excuse to escape the December weather and head south-of-the-border for some fun in the sun.
The String & Sol experience is filled with music, casual artist interactions, artist-hosted workshops, activities and contests, as well as an autograph signing, impromptu jam sessions and treasured seaside siestas to get ready for the night’s festivities. Strings & Sol is truly that magical place, where fans reunite year after year to celebrate south of the border at the ultimate concert vacation in paradise.
Located just north of fishing village Puerto Morelos and 25 minutes south of the Cancun Airport, the resort is conveniently located making it easy to explore the surrounding Mayan region from Cancun to Tulum. Fans can book off-site excursions through trusted local providers on the Strings & Sol website.
Strings & Sol is again partnering with charitable organization Positive Legacy, encouraging artists and fans to participate in a day of service and cultural connection in the community of Puerto Morelos as a way of giving back. The ongoing Positive Legacy project in this region has been the “Urban Garden Initiative”, a mission to bring the practice of community gardening to the local high school. The goal of the project is to share in the practice of gardening and create a local, sustainable fresh food source. Details for this year’s Day of Service will be announced in the coming months.
Event details are as follows:
