Following their highly-acclaimed early-summer tour this June, Dead & Company has announced that they will head south of the border early next year for their first-ever destination event, dubbed Playing In The Sand. The event is being hosted by the band and partners CID Presents from February 15th – 18th, 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.
In addition to Dead & Company’s three concerts on the beach, Playing in the Sand will offer guests an assortment of curated amenities such as all-inclusive food and drink, premium hotel accommodations, shuttle service to and from Cancun International Airport, an official Dead & Company Riviera Maya gift bag, and 24-hour concierge service. 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 the hip, music-themed Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya, the tranquil, relaxing Mayakoba Rosewood and Mayakoba Banyan Tree, and the swanky Dreams Tulum.
