Today, Cloud 9 Adventures and The Bowery Presents have announced the second edition of My Morning Jacket’s One Big Holiday – the band’s ultimate fan experience and destination concert event. My Morning Jacket brings their live performance, and 2500 fans as witnesses, back to the fully renovated Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya from January 31-February 4, 2015 for a 4 night all-inclusive concert adventure of a lifetime.
“We are so excited for this second year of One Big Holiday…the second of what we hope will be many more to come! The first one was so beautiful we just knew we had to do it again…what could be more fun than spending quality time with a bunch of sweet folks- old friends and new- in a beautiful place celebrating music/art/peace and love!!! Let’s get together and celebrate!” – My Morning Jacket
After bringing the heat last year in the concert courtyard within the resort, One Big Holiday will once again feature three full shows under the stars by My Morning Jacket. Once again returning to join the band on this adventure will be Preservation Hall Jazz Band, as well as newcomers War On Drugs, Dr .Dog, Dawes and Sylvan Esso who will each perform one show, plus special guest DJ Biz Markie. Fans are also in for a special treat as Band of Horses will perform two full shows, including one acoustic performance as the sun goes down.
In addition to an intimate run of shows, fans will enjoy all of the luxurious benefits offered by the beautiful Hard Rock Riviera Maya. More than a series of live shows, this is an all-inclusive experience; all fans stay on site at the resort and all meals, drinks, concerts and activities are included in the package. With a full renovation and re-branding completed earlier this year, the stunning Hard Rock Riviera Maya is located just south of Playa del Carmen and the location promises all of the modern amenities of a first class tropical vacation – rock and roll style, complete with a variety of room types that look out onto the concert area.
Days at the resort will be spent relaxing by the pool, taking a swim in the ocean, enjoying the incredible spa, exploring the local cenotes, and gathering for meals with friends. Plus, look out for spontaneous artist involvement in activities, cultural experiences & excursions, and all the magical moments that come from being on vacation with your crew. The possibilities are endless! Then, as the sun goes down, guests will be treated to shows by live bands. Night two’s shows get a later start to allow for multiple viewing parties of America’s biggest football game of the year with the action going well into the night. An additional treat is that the music will live on well after the event, as everyone who attends will receive a download code for each MMJ performance at One Big Holiday to be redeemed by Live Downloads.
