My Morning Jacket will once again team with Cloud 9 Adventures and The Bowery Presents for their "tropical concert vacation" One Big Holiday at the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya in Mexico from February 4-8. The 2017 lineup includes Gary Clark Jr., The Head and the Heart, Kurt Vile & The Violators, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Deer Tick, Lucius, a sunset set from Carl Broemel, and a DJ set from tUnE-yArDs' Merrill Garbus. "The party won’t stop after the main stage shows end, as late-night jams and DJ sets will occur nightly."
Here's more info, via press release:
Extending beyond the main stage, this intimate fan experience will contain a full schedule of exciting happenings, including artist-hosted activities, workshops, poolside games, cooking demos, theme nights, with more to be announced. In addition, a special viewing party will again be planned for America’s biggest football game of the year. My Morning Jacket guest chefs Bobby Benjamin and Chad Welch from Butchertown Grocery will be providing a specially curated feast for the big game. Post-event, every guest will receive a download code for each My Morning Jacket show at One Big Holiday, as to be redeemed by Live Downloads.
Tickets go on sale June 8 at noon EST. Pre-sale for returning guests starts June 7 at noon, and Roll Call members can enter a form for the presale beginning on May 24 and ending on May 31 at 5pm.
