Dead & Company has announced that they will return to Riviera Maya, Mexico for their second annual Playing In The Sand destination event. The event is being hosted by the band and partners CID Presents from January 17th–20th, 2019 (as opposed to February, as in 2018), and will see band members Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann, Mickey Hart, John Mayer, Oteil Burbridge, and Jeff Chimenti perform for three nights on an intimate, white sandy Mexican beach, just feet away from the Caribbean. Besides their two-nights at LOCKN’ Music Festival in Arrington, Virginia, these are the only currently-announced Dead & Company shows on the schedule.

There will also be a slew of on-site activities such as yoga, tequila tasting, bowling and surfing, as well as a plethora of off-site adventures that allow guests to explore Mexico’s amazing natural treasures and sacred ancient history.
The concerts will take place at host resort The Barceló Maya, with guests getting the choice to stay there or at one of the other hand-picked area resorts of varying prices and styles. Additional available accommodations include Secrets Akumal, Dreams Tulum, The Hard Rock Hotel, Unico, and the Mayakoba‘s Rosewood, Banyan Tree, and Fairmont properties.
